      Been awhile since I have had to do this, here goes
      In control panel > system > device manager > view devices by connection 
> double click on "computer" another screen opens and then you will see 4 
choices, one is IRQ. This will show you what hardware device is using what IRQ.
      If you see an IRQ not being used then turn it off, then windows should 
re-alocate the IRQ's if you turn one off. 
      Example: you are not using a com port, (you will need to turn that off 
in your bios)
    The pic is from a Win98 OS , you will have to look a little bit in WinXP
HTH and someone with XP may need to help just a bit
