i have three hard drives :
1 * Hitachi 250 GB Sata 2 on Nvidia Controller
2 * Samsung 80 GB Sata in RAID O on Silicon Controller
1. the problem is when i boot into windows the LAN connection (two small monitors in the taskbar) takes atleast 10 minutes to show !! and theother problem is that until tht two monitors dnt appear i dnt get any reply frm right clicking any of the drives to see their properties and frm My
Computer too, but as soon as the two small monitors come all the properties just pop up.
2. Sometimes suddenly in between Windows shows Write Delayed
Failed Error only on the Raid Drives and i cnt access them afterwards,
restarting solves the problem tho but jst for sumtime.
Do you have any mapped drives set in my computer. Windows take a long time to time out looking for mapped drives sometimes. Are you using dhcp or static addresses. Router? cable/dsl or dial-up?
Take a look at msconfig - startup tab and see whats running. Try unchecking everything and see if problem still exists. If not add back programs untill it reappears, theres the problem program.
