It gave you some decent tips. I would start with this:

Make sure DMA is enabled on all disk drives. Not using DMA mode can cause a significant reduction in disk speed. For more information on how to enable DMA, see these Microsoft documents (links open in a new window): Windows XP, Windows 95/98/Me, Windows 2000, or Windows NT. If DMA will not enable for the drive, it may be due to a corrupted driver file or configuration data. To fix this problem, go to Device Manager, remove the disk controller, and reboot. Windows will re-detect the disk controller and reset the configuration data.

DMA on ATA drives will only work if you are using an 80-conductor cable; you may need to open up the case to visually inspect the cable. If DMA becomes disabled repeatedly over time, it may indicate low-quality cables that need to be replaced. Microsoft mentions repeated DMA errors as one reason why DMA will be disabled, and low-quality cables can be the cause. DMA may also be disabled if you attempt to rip or play a copy-protected audio CD.
