| This has nothing to do with interupts; as the error message *clearly*

Thanks, Mike.  That is normally the first thing I do with a new laptop 
installation.  My surprise was that this BIOS almost doesn't let you
change anything and PnP isn't even mentioned.:-(

Sounds like that is the only option that I have.

Thanks, Mike.
