A method and system for allowing interrupt service routines to minimize the latency between the occurrence of a hardware interrupt signal and the execution of a modular interrupt service routine. In a preferred embodiment, a method for allowing modular interrupt service routines to be inserted in the hierarchy of a MS Windows protected mode operating system modules in a manner which minimizes the above mentioned latencies for the hardware interrupt request line

0

(IRQ

0

). In another embodiment, a method for allowing modular interrupt service routines to be inserted in the hierarchy of MS Windows protected mode operating system modules in a manner which minimizes the above mentioned latencies for all hardware interrupt request lines (IRQs) signals other than IRQ

0.
