Hello swaps4...

Right click on "My Computer" and choose "Properties".

Click the "Hardware" tab, then the "Device Manager" button.

In Device Manager, expand (click +) "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers".

Right click on "Primary IDE channel" and choose "Properties".

Click on the "Advanced Settings" tab.

What is shown for the "Current Transfer Mode" for Device 0?

List Device 1 for that channel, too. Then make the same check on the "Secondary IDE channel"...post the Current Transfer Mode settings for Device 0 and Device 1 for that channel, as well.

The Secondary Channel should be listed under the Primary Channel.

Those settings are correct then. You can close out of Device Manager.

There is a possibility that your HDD is going bad, though I would have expected to see the Primary channel set to PIO Only if that were the case.

Have you had this rig checked for malware?
