190 IRQ's???

    I have been researching my ACPI errors...you know like this one:

    Log Name: System
    Source: ACPI

    IRQARB: ACPI BIOS does not contain an IRQ for the device in PCI slot 13,
    function 0. Please contact your system vendor for technical assistance.

    And in looking into my IRQ's and sharing I fould that Vista created 190
    IRQ's....which I guess is ok except for the fact that it shares about 14 of
    them and does nothing with the other 176 , while at the same time complains
    that I don't have drivers for 4 of them and gives me errors in event viewer
    on every boot.

    Anyone with an A8N SLI Premium having similar issues? and would changing the
    computer driver to "Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI PC)"
    help sort this out?
    OR should I just not worry about it?

    To be truthfull Other than lack of good drivers , game performance , some
    compatibilty issuse with older programs...standard new OS growing pains , my
    system is running very well , BUT these errors bother me , especially since
    the error reporter tells me this has been solved by ASUS...and it hasn't ,
    and I have this wierd feeling that I am getting performance issues from this.

    thanks for any helpfull ideas , info or links ,

    (but if you are just going to be snippy and rude please do it to someone
    else...thanks , too much of that going on here)

    I've been trying to find out the same info as I get them on my system also.
    I would bet a good number of computers react the same way...if people were
    to look at their event viewer. Here's a quote from the MS Knowledge base:
    This error message may occur on a computer that uses a Peripheral Component
    Interconnect (PCI) bridge that supports message-signaled interrupts but does
    not support line-based interrupts

    This error message may safely be ignored.

    Note Do not ignore this error message if the following conditions are
    true: . A yellow explanation mark (!) appears next to the device in Device
    . You receive the following error message in the Properties dialog box
    for the device in Device Manager:
    This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code
    In this scenario, a different issue may be causing the symptoms. Take
    additional steps to troubleshoot this issue"

    Took me several days of hunting to find this.

    I am also getting 10 errors that relate to the NVATABUS in event viewer on
    boot up and found that has to do with having a CD drive on the second IDE
    channel. Everything works great on my system so that's nothing to worry
    about either.

    "This error message may safely be ignored."


    Well I guess I'll safely ignore it then.

    Thanks for the link Bob , it eases my mind a bit.

    I wonder though If I was to change the Computer driver to the Advanced
    Configuration Interface if it would condense my IRQ's?

    Well , its running ok so I'm gonna let it go , I already had to reinstall
    Vista once this month

    I would bet that our boot time would decrease if there were a way to
    eliminate the messages as it must take some time for Vista to generate the
    messages...but there doesn't seem to be any way to do that. Maybe MS will
    provide a way to skip over this during boot eventually. My guess is that
    changing to Advanced Configuration and Power Interface wouldn't make a

    I'm running a dual core AMD X64 processor, MSI MB with NForce 4 sli chipset
    and wondered where the "multiprocessor" designation went...I found out that
    MS doesn't use that nomenclature anymore...in case anyone questions the
    entry under "computer" in hardware devices. I'd also like to eliminate the
    NVATABUS error messages but the only way anyone has done that was to remove
    their cd/dvd drive from the second IDE channel....but I need my cd connected
