Hi,

I'm having a bad time with my pc. it always crash and freeze.

I want you to have a look at conflict/sharing report in my pc, is there any problem with it? is it OK for hardware to share same IRQ numbers?:

I have Nvidia Gforce 9500GT. I always install the latestes drivers from Nvidia website. but I still have the same issue.
many of the BSOD I get are titled with: IRQ_LESS_OR_IQAUL, MEMORY_MANAGMENT, BAD_POOL..etc.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In problem devices section(from System information window) I see the following:

Consumer IR Devices ROOT\SYSTEM\0001 This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device.

eHome Infrared Receiver (USBCIR) USB\VID_147A&PID_E018\000013DA This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device.

Security Processor Loader Driver ROOT\LEGACY_SPLDR\0000 This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed.

Unknown Device USB\VID_0000&PID_0000\5&1192208B&0&1 43
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm searching for drivers for it but in vain.

this is my pc except for the video card which I upgraded to 9500GT:

Did you test the RAM with memtest86 or memtest86+?

You will find the motherboard chipset drivers at the nVidia website. You have an outdated system so look under the Legacy drivers > nForce4 series > Geforce 6150SE / nForce 430. I'd post the exact link but you didn't state whether you're running Win7 32-bit or 64-bit.

Sound drivers & network drivers will be found at the Realtek website.

And to answer your question, yes, IRQ sharing is quite alright, in fact it's unavoidable.
There are so many different types of peripherals and devices on computers these days that there just aren't enough IRQs for each device to have a different one.

Years ago Windows couldn't share IRQs so the user had to manually manage them.
Nowadays, modern versions of Windows can assign and share IRQs automatically.

I changed my ram module and the pc stopped freezing. Althought in my PC specifications they mentioned it supports PC2-6400 (800 MHz) Rams. I bought two identical 4GB(2x2) 800MHZ moduls and I installed them. but when I use them together the system won't boot. it will work fine if I use them seperatly. but somtimes it freezes. I ran the memtest86 and memtest86+? but found no errors.

I put back my original 2GB PC2-5300 (667 MHz) and it works fine.

Thanks for the info about the IRQ's
