    Alright I have the following:

    Soyo Dragon Ultra MB w/
    Intel P4 2.53gz
    1024mb of pc3200 samsung ddr
    Radeon 9000 Pro
    400watt power supply
    running windows XP Pro

    Alright here is my problem, when I use my PCI Firewire card, my computer locks up after running for about 2-5 minutes. If I take out the Firewire card, there we go all problems are gone. Now I noticed in my Device Manager that the Radeon 9000 Pro AGP card, the Onboard Sound, and (When it's in) the Firewire PCI card are all on IRQ channel 16. I am assuming this is the problem? But I don't understand why the computer works fine when only the Video card and the Sound card are sharing IRQ channel 16? Is there any possible way to change IRQ's in XP? I know it is supposed to be automatic with the virtual IRQ's but something is not right here. Please help!

    Some things I have done in the BIOS:
    Plug & Play: Yes
    Resources: Auto(ESCD)
    Disabled both Serial ports
    Disabled Parallel port

    And I doubt the Issue would be solved by purchasing a new Firewire card? This really sucks because I need to do some Video Editing in Premiere and I need the Firewire ports to do so.

    Thanks. If you need any more info on my machine let me know...
