Hi Bahlzeron...

Does your machine seem sluggish?

Open Device Manager and expand (click +) IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. Right click on the "Primary IDE channel" and choose "Properties". Click the "Advanced Settings" tab. What is shown in the Transfer Mode field and Current Transfer Mode field for the device(s) shown there?

Check the "Secondary IDE channel" the same way and report what you find.

they are all set to DMA. No, this thing is running nice and fast.

Primary(hard drives) both are U-DMA mode 5, secondary #1(cd rw/dvd) is mode 3, #2(cd-rom) is mode 2 (both are U-DMA)

So much for that hunch... :)

Have you tried rolling back the drivers to the previous version?

Hi, I was googling around for a solution to my own problem.

I haven't found anything yet, just started looking but this may or may not help; My sound was fine until installing Winamp Pro. Sound was fine with the Full version, but after installing pro, music pops and snaps in any audio player and in video sound as well.

I can say for sure this started happing only after Winamp. I've tried upgrading drivers, removing Winamp....nothing so far. One thing I know is if I format my machine and do a fresh install, the problem will be gone.

I tried rolling back drivers, both soundcard and videocard. I'm really stumped. I guess it's just gonna stay this way, there appears to be no fix in sight.
