    Currently I cannot assign IRQ 12 manually to any of the PCI Slots, if I do, the computer hangs at the point where the BIOS is detecting PCI Devices, and if I don't assign it, nothing uses it at all, so it is effectively wasted.


    I have a ASUS A7V133 with 1005a BIOS, and no PS/2 Mouse.

    Is there a BIOS that allows you to disable PS/2 mouse port, because the only options I have in BIOS setup at the moment is "Auto" & "Enabled".

    Anybody have any idea's?

    MMM What I don’t understand is why you want to do this are you getting a conflict?

    on my PC I have my SBlive on IRQ12 and my usb so the chipset lets you do it

    Well I am running Windows 98SE, and I was hoping to move my Network Card and USB Ports up to IRQ12, because PCI slots 4 & 5 are currently assigned IRQ4, which is almost at the bottom of the priority list! (yes some of us actually read the manual :))

    At the moment I have the IRQ's assigned the following way,

    AGP/PCI Slot 1 (Geforce2MX/Empty) IRQ 9
    PCI Slot 2 (Empty / OnboardPromise RAID IDE Controller) IRQ10
    PCI Slot 3 (MX300 Sound Card) IRQ11
    PCI Slot 4 (Intel Network Card) Auto (but assigned IRQ4 according to POST and OS)
    PCI Slot 5 Empty (but PCI Slots 4 & 5 Share with the USB anyway, but I can live with that!)

    IRQ 12 cannot be manually assigned to any of the PCI slots, nor does it get used if I go fully AUTO on all the PCI slots.

    If there was a BIOS option to disable the PS/2 Mouse port, I would certainly use it, and I bet money it would solve my problem if it was available!

    If you want something done properly do it yourself

    I figured it out, by myself!

    It sucks to be at the top of the technical food chain!
