Hello,
I have a issue with my mini ITX board (VIA EN 15000G) and usb devices. I got a USB 5.1 sound card (Zalmann) and a USB GPS (deluco). Even though both devices are plugged into seperate USB slots, they have the same IRQ port, which I believe is causing the problem. The problem is only 1 works at a time. When I boot, either I get GPS or Audio, not both, which I need both.
when I go to device manager, and try to change the IRQ, its grayed out as the PC is seeing no error, though I do. Is there a way to fix this?
