when tested my computer with SiSoftSandra, I've got a message that my display adapter doesn't have an interrupt request, and if it had an IRQ assigned performances would improve significaly. I have tried to figure out how to assign an IRQ number to graphic card, but nowhere in BIOS there is such an option. I would like to ask anyone is it possible to solve the problem anyhow (maybe witn installing different BIOS that is not attended to my motherboard) or it is up to the graphic card. Thanks.

Some cards don't get assigned an IRQ directly from the BIOS and is handled by whatever windows O.S. you are using. A little more info in this case please, like computer make and model or motherboard make and model CPU and Video card type, make and model.

If it is an AGP card don't worry about it.
