Technically, it's not "corruption", it's a "conflict" (two devices
trying to claim the same IRQ).

Look on the card and the motherboard near the ethernet jack for dip
switches labelled "IRQ something", and flip one of them. :-)

Failing that, check in the BIOS config screens for IRQ settings.  Or
maybe do this first if opening the case again would be more annoying.

Failing that, install Linux and WINE, maybe?  Or just drink the wine!
