    It seems when a program is loading or other disk activity my whole system
    slows down to a crawl. I have the Intel application accelerator installed as
    Intel said to use this instead of drivers for the hard drive controller, but
    it doesn't seem to help or I've become used to it or expect to much of my
    computer. Does anyone else have this problem with the on board controller
    and hard drive performance?

    Thanks, Rich

    Sounds like you don't have DMA enabled on the drives.

    I don't think you need IAA unless your running a raid setup. Remove
    I would recommend a thorough system scan and a scheduled checkdisk.
    Also, run the default controler driver with the latest chipset inf
    update. If your running windows XP SP1, these will already be
    installed and DMA will be enabled...
