FYI...you don't actually set a sata as a slave drive...all sata drives are on their own connector

Also, you the following instructions to download and run Sandra XII which is probably the best, free, diagnostic tool:
How to create a Sandra XII report.
Important Note: Sandra, like all computer test programs, stresses computer components beyond the average use. This is necessary to discover weaknesses in the system. On the other hand, if the system is in a marginal state a permanent failure of components may occur . Before running the program make sure to save any unsaved data.
Download Sandra XII using the link in my signature. Please note that if you run XP 64 you need a different version of Sandra then when using XP 32. Install and run the program.
Click on Tools and then on Create Report
. Follow the instructions and when given the option uncheck everything which you do not need to test. Choose a place in which to save the report. The report can be very long and complex so do not attach it to your post unless specifically asked to do so.
Run the program. The test is quite long. On my computer just testing the hardware takes about 40 minutes. At the top righthand corner there is an idicator that shows that the test is running. At the end look at the report on the screen and report items which did not pass the test successfully.
