Hi all,

Just recently installed a new 80G sata 2 drive for OS, and a disk drive. The disk drive was running slow and eventually freezes. So i put my old one back in and the same happens. So i think it must be the hard drive. its a Western Digital 80G sata2. I have a 400G for my video media, and am running a Core2 E6600, with asus pn5 mb 2G ram and a nvidia7950GT.

Also the same problems with my 2G memory stick. When i try to drag files from disk or stick the drives just freeze.

Anyone any ideas on the problem. I can track the problem to when i installed the Sata2 drive (I think) as nothing else has been installed.

Would a problem wityh the harddrive slow down everything.

Also when startijng up pc it takes considerably longer now.

Thanx in advance for your help

Jason

Hello and Welcome to TSF,


my guess would be that windows is seeing the hardware but can't figure out what it is and timing out. Enter cmos setup, and look for a setting to enable "reset configuration data", most likely under pnp/pci configuration. it will re-numerate all hardware resources
