    Thanks Cheeks:thumbleft

    When pete said 5 My first though was "isn't that LPT2?"

    What if 5 was already being used?

    will the sound card conflict with LPT2? or can you change the IRQ address of the sound card IRQ10?

    Sound cards vary on IRQs. 5 wos popular, but often others were used. One of mine used IRQ 10. Some soundcards used more than one IRQ.

    However - this was in the days of ISA and compatibles. These days you have little or no control over it and the question is redundant.
