    Hi,

    I'm putted together a computer with some spare parts, including the K7VTA3
    Ver. 8. The first thing I noticed was the harddrive seems very slow. I
    checked under Device Manager and it showed the HD is only operating at Mode
    2. HD Tach showed the transfer rate of about 16MB/s.

    How can I get the 100MB/s that my HD is reportedly capable of?

    Thanks in advance

    Never mind.

    Doh! The DMA setting was turned off in BIOS somehow.
