Recently, my friend who helped me make my own computer told me of a program that tests your system performance. Just too double check everything, I did some tests and everything preformed very nicely except my harddrive. I'm getting an average read speed of 1700 MB/s but my write speed average is only about 28 MB/s.
This is a brand new computer with all new parts so there shouldn't be a hardware problem. I've gotten all windows update updates as well as all driver updates such as DirectX, graphics card, and even BIOS version.
When I installed Windows I never did anything different for it being a sata drive. I just assumed windows XP installed the drivers for it and everything. Also, I did a bit of reading and found out "Force 150" is where my jumper should be so I moved it there. It didn't seem to help at all though.
Can anybody tell me what's wrong? 28 MB/s write isn't normal for this drive is it!?
P.S. i have 2048 ddr2 ram so I doubt my ram is the problem.
