How can I update drivers?
For your Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller go to http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/ and download the drivers.
For your Dell DW1501 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card go to Dell and get the latest driver from there.

here is my zipfile for the etl file
If I put it in the second slot and that does give it a new IRQ, would placing another card in the first PCIe stay with IRQ 16 or would it use the other?
Afraid so, yes, it does still occur. I try uninstalling different USB devices including hubs and controllers in Device Manager but so far I still cannot solve it. Oddly the time taken for the problem to recur following a reboot does not appear to be constant. Sometimes it can be 2-3 hours, sometimes (usually) longer up to a few days. I wonder if there is a loose solder joint on my motherboard or something, but I just can't tell. I did think the internal card reader was the main suspect but still not sure. I have now changed it for a spare one I had laying around (same model) but the problem has still reappeared since so...
I've sort of given up a bit, it was driving me nuts and taking up lots of time so I have just let it go and decided to just put up with the occasional reboot (on average a couple of days I suppose).
MEI stands for Intel® Management Engine Interface which belongs to Intel VPro. For home using you can disable it.
To see which other devices use IRQ 16 you can use the device manager in Windows (change the way Windows lists the device under view) or you can run msinfo32 to see the IRQs. I used the etl file to see it. Open the ETL with a double click, go to trace->"System configuration". There you also find a IRQ list. Now use the PNPtab to see what device you see under the IRQ list (under the IRQ list you only see the IDs).
Thanks for all the help
also look about IRQ sharing. Maybe this also causes your issues
...btw this seems like it's caused by having resource monitor open before you try running the command.
hi , i have followed ur steps and so far i got stuck at one point , when i enter the command xperf -on latency i get this -xperf:error:NT Kernel Logger: Cannot create a file when that file already exists.<0xb7>. pls tell me if this is what i should see or if i did smth wrong . ty
