Nothing to worry about.
Interrupts which are not known where they originate from are sent to IRQ7
(per 8259A spec). It could be just about anything in your machine generating
these interrupts, and this is only a problem if it happens very often. There
were a discussion about this a while ago and the conclusion is that it
happens with just about every chipset.

You should have no problem with this chipset if it is the KT133 without
onboard graphics (99% chance).

LOL! I mistakenly read your acronym as "sh*t".
