IRQ is when a device in your computer needs the cpu's attention.
Your cpu does not need an IRQ (correct me if I'm wrong).

There is however an IRQ assigned for the coprocessor's Floating Point Unit. It should be number 13.
In "Device Manager" go to "View -> Resources by Type"
then expand "Interrupt Request (IRQ) and look for Numeric Data Processor.
