    Welcome to the PC Guide forums!

    Hereís the general stuff that you need to know:

    An easy printable IRQ chart:
    -Since most modern PCs donít have more than one parallel port, IRQ 5 is usually used for the sound card.
    -IRQ 12 is used for the PS/2 mouse port.
    -IRQ 14 is for the primary IDE controller
    -IRQ 15 is for the secondary IDE controller

    Another IRQ chart:

    I/O Address chart:

    DMA Chart:

    Hope this helps.

    Make sure to go to Jiggy's link for more detailed info on each of the above.
