Primary Hdd Stuck In PIO mode.

Discussion in 'Gigabyte' started by Gregory Kleverlaan, Sep 10, 2005.

  1. Just installed a new 250gb seagate ATA/100 hard disk model: st3250823a
    running windows xp pro. For some reason it seems to be stuck in PIO mode
    16.6 mb/s and is realy slow. I can't seem to change it to UDMA mode.

    My second hard disk (primary slave) is a 120gb seagate and thats running
    fine in UDMA/5
    ATA/100 no problem.

    Any ideas why my hard disk seems not to be able to access UDMA mode on my
    hard disk? All help appreciated in solving this.

    My motherrboard is Gigabyte GA-7VT600

    Try uninstaling in control panel/system/device manager/ide ata controller
    the channel where is your hard drive and reboot, it should be ok afterwards

    Dont uninstall - just go to Device Manager and select the hard drive
    and change from PIO to DMA and then press refresh so it will change
    in few seconds.
