It is now down to 53.7MB/s. These readings are from HdTach. I check the speed every
week and each time, its slower than the last reading.
My system is a Intel Pentium 4HT, 3000 MHz (15 x 200)
My Motherboard Name = Intel Bonanza D875PBZ (5 PCI, 1 AGP, 4 DIMM, LAN).
My chipset id is =Motherboard Chipset Intel Canterwood i875P.
Looking at the Intel site, they say the SATA drivers are included in the chipset (ICH5??).
I have re-installed WinXP Home (SP2) twice. Once using the OEM system cd's and once
using the full version of WinXP. Neither showed any change in the speed. I dont really
have that much stuff on my HD's. Several partitions are empty of data (having data on
them makes no difference in speed.
I have exhausted Google and other hardware forums searching for an answer but no
help was found.
I want to get my SATA HD speed back to where it was.
Looking for any ideas because i'm completely out,
