Technical expertise resides in developing firmware and PC-interface software for embedded systems using C/C++/C# programming languages, integrated development environments, and low-level debugging techniques. I enjoy developing embedded and PC drivers for wired communications.

Previous work focused on the development of firmware for USB, CAN, SPI, RS-232, RS-485, ZigBee, and analog drivers, as well as implementing low-power embedded solutions across a broad range of embedded and desktop platforms.

comment How do I reassign conflicting IRQs?
About 25% to 75% of the time when I boot my computer, it blue-screens (attachments.techguy.org/attachments/162503d1262669945/…). There are also other times when the computer seems to lockup, sometime after booting, for no apparent reason, which, just as hunch, I think is related to the first issue. The Event Viewer shows only DCOM errors, which, as I understand, doesn't mean anything.

Here's a link to a screen capture of my Device Manager showing the current IRQ assignments: attachments.techguy.org/attachments/162339d1262368313/…

Hello Molly. Yes, the Device Manager does report no conflicts, but viewing the IRQ assignments tells a different story. Here's a link to a screen capture of the Device Manager: attachments.techguy.org/attachments/162339d1262368313/…

The DCOM service doesn't appear in the list. You could be right; just prior to this I also installed a bunch of Windows updates via their new "Microsoft Update." Do you have any ideas on how to launch System Restore without going through help? Thanks.
