Ouch, what a TERRIBLE video card. Bite the bullet and by yourself a TNT2
M64 or TNT2 VANTA. They are so cheap that you will bang your head against
a brick wall after you find out how much faster and easier to use they
are, especally for the price (barely above $100)

And about irqs, make sure it is enabled unless you only use console X.
Most video cards rely on them to give acceptable performace.
