Interrupt Question

I just wanted to get some advaice. I have been having a problem with X. When I am in xorg the GUI just randomly freezes/hangs. I have tried configuring xorg.conf as well as a couple of things.

I am not very familiar with interrupts. However I do know that two devices should not share the same interrupt. So I wanted someone elses opinion that is more familiar with interrupts. Below is my /proc/interrupts file. So you think that the freeze could be getting caused by conflicting/crossed interrupts?

Well, PCI bus allows devices to share IRQ these day.

If it is a X11 issue, you can try to inspect the Xorg.0.log first to see if there is any clue.
