Using HP's ScanJet software (v. 2.8) to install my SCSI card and HP ScanJet 4c Scanner it automatically assigns an IRQ of 7. As this is in conflict with another peripheral and IRQ 5 is free, how can I change the SCSI cards IRQ to 5?
Thank you for your help.

Is your SCSI card a PCI PnP card?
If yes, Go to your Cmos setup by hitting DEL eky while you start your PC. Change the "PnP OS" to "No". You should be able to control the IRQ for the first four PCI cards on your motherboard.  Check where your scsi card located and change that to ue IRQ 5. You may need the manuel when you are trying to figure the slot number.

If no, that means you have a ISA card. You may need to set the jumper on the SCSI card according the manuel from the SCSI card manufacturer.

My SCSI card is an HP C2502-66500 for which I have no manual. The HP support page (www.hp.com/cposupport/scanners/support_doc/bps01094.html) tells me that the card configures automatically but that i can force the I/O address AND the IRQ by using simple "device" statements in config.sys which is fine for DOS but I have no idea how to do the equivalent with NT.
Thank you for help.
Best regards,
