Hi,\nI'm tearing my hair out!!\n\nSystem is:\nmsi 6119 latest bios 2.9 (i think from memory)\np3 600\nasus 7100 ge force 2 mx\n384 me g pc133 ram\nwestern digital 40 gig hdd ata100 (wd400jb)\nsound blaster pci 128\nsony burner - crx225e\n3com 3c509b-tx nic\nxp pro - all current updates/patches applied\n\nI have 2 problems.....the first is when I bought the new wd hard drive\nI was given a sil0680 pci ata 133 adaptor that does raid etc. When it\nis in the system it causes instability, it either reboots during\nbootup or causes the machine to reboot at some stage during use\nshortly after sucessful bootup. I have searched everywhere for info\nas to why this is happening and have found no info. I have swapped\nsil 0680 cards with the same result, have used that card in a linux\nmachine and it worked fine. If I leave the card in the system and run\nthe hdd off the primary ide on the m/board the system runs without a\nproblem....that is until I found my next problem.\n\nMy laptop is an old win98 machine and whenever I try to brouse or suck\nfiles from my share folder on the xp machine it will either lock up or\nagain reboot evey single time I try to do this.\nI remember reading that there may be issues with xp on older systems\nin relation to pci steering and maybe acpi, but I do not seem to have\nthe option to disable these in device manager.\nI have assumed that the problem lies with the ata 133 card but am\nstumped on how to fix it!!\nAny ideas would be appreciated or if I havent given enough detail\nplease let me know.\n\nCheers,\n\nMichael.
