[ The PC Guide | Systems and Components Reference Guide | Motherboard and System Devices | System Resources | Interrupts (IRQs) | IRQ Details By Number ]


IRQ Number: 10

16-Bit Priority: 5

Bus Line: 16-bit only

Typical Default Use: None.

Other Common Uses: Network cards, sound cards, SCSI host adapters, secondary IDE channel, quaternary IDE channel, PCI devices.

Description: This is usually open and one of the easiest IRQs to use since it is generally not contested by many devices. While the secondary IDE controller can sometimes be set to use IRQ10, it almost always uses IRQ15 instead.

Conflicts: Conflicts on IRQ10 are unusual; the only thing to watch out for is a PCI card that needs an interrupt line being assigned IRQ10 by the BIOS; this can be changed in some cases using the BIOS setup parameters that assign IRQs to PCI devices.

Next: IRQ11
