More about guys
  1. http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ClassValue=Motherboard&ProductID=2669&Pr

    It is possible that the chipset on the motherboard does not support SATA II. The specifications certainly do not mention SATA II. The specifications only mention "4 x SATA 3Gb/s connectors supporting up to 4 SATA 3Gb/s devices".

    "SATA" is typically in reference to SATA I and not SATA II NCQ/TCQ (Native Command Queuing/Tagged Command Queuing).

    The specifications of the motherboard in question do not mention SATA II compatibility.

    Most SATA hard drives sold these days are SATA II.

    A SATA II HD running on a mobo that is SATA I compliant will behave similar to what you are experiencing.

    If this is what's wrong.... the solution is a PROMISE controller card (PCI)

    This is only a suggestion.
  2. It sounds like your cpu is getting tapped out.

    Open your task manager and watch the cpu performance.

    Then play your songs and open the net. If your cpu is getting near 100%, it will studder until the usage starts to drop. P4 cpu's aren't good for multitasking.

    well.. its just 4-5% cpu usage on doing that..
    i have call some computer tech.

    lets c if he can help tht out


    thnks anyways guys

    i'll bring back u d info..
  4. by your graphs, it's the RAM that's being tapped out. You may just need to add some more RAM. What are kind are you using?
  5. its 2gb ddr2 ram
  6. But what is the speed? 667...800...?
  7. well tht i really dont knw
    is dere any way 2 know it?
  8. Yep, open the case and pull out one of the chips. It should have a label on it.

    RAM, RAM, AND MORE RAM. BAD RAM CHIP I THINK. HAD SIMILAR PROBLEM SO I CHANGED RAM AND PROBLEM NO MORE! ADDED 2 MORE GIG. RAM ALSO
  10. Jimer, less of the shouting!

    @OP
    download and run memtest86. there should be instructions on the website. let us know the results.
  11. Run manufacturers diagnostic on your hard drive. It may not show a fault now if it is working at present. 2 Gb RAM is plenty, but you could run Memtest86+.

    Mike.
  12. you can use this to see what kind of ram you have EVEREST Ultimate Edition v5.00

    http://www.majorgeeks.com/EVEREST_Ultimate_Edition_d4876.html

    could be memory run a memory checker memtest or vista has 1 built in Control Panel\Administrative Tools memory diagnostics

    http://www.memtest86.com/
    or powersupply
  13. If the HDD is SATA2 and motherboard is only Sata1 have you placed jumper on the drive to make it operate at SATA1 speeds etc.
    I'm guessing BIOS is having problems correctly identifing the drive with it not being set to SATA1
  14. well.. i guess i have SP3 installed and on the motherboard site.. its mentioned only SP1 and SP2
  15. I wouldn't recommend installing SP3. There have been some problems with it. But it's not going to cause any compatibility problems with your motherboard. SP3 may not have been out when the mobo review was put up.
  16. well.. i have to tell u one more thing
    earlier i was having AMD Athlon XP 2000+
    Sis 740.. mobo
    256DDR RAM

    i used to occur this problem ( sound going grrrrrrr )
    i thought may b cuz of RAM...

    now in dis cpu.. all is new.. processor,, mobo,, hard disc..even ram

    MY BOOTING TAKES NEARLY ABOUT 5 MINS.. :((


    hmm.. is the PSU the culprit..?
  17. well.. i have came 2 know abt my RAM

    its 667Mhz 2x1GB RAM
  18. What OS are you using?
  19. its XP SP3
  20. I would suggest adding another Gb of RAM or adjusting the virtual memory. The RAM is a bit on the low end. Adding another Gb of RAM should help stop your pc from being tapped out.

    XP will run on 512Mb, 1Gb is fine, 2Gb is plenty. The OP has had at least 2 suggestions to run Memtest86, which would eliminate this as a problem. I also suggested running HD diagnostic. I had this error many years ago on a system running Win98 and i think it went when I changed the memory, but it was a long time ago. He could try one stick at a time if he has 2 x 1Gb.

  22. well.. how to run memtest86

    downloaded it..mount it on alcohol.. now wot 2 do?

    on the same page scroll down a little runs in Windows
    Version 3.5 is the preferred release. The 3.4 release is provided here as an alternative.

    * Download - Pre-Compiled Memtest86 v3.4a installable from Windows and DOS

    You're right, it will, but..

    -It's obviously a RAM issue, all you have to do is look at the graph
    -OP is using a slow kit DDR2 667
    -It could be a faulty stick or something could be a resource hog.
    -Either way, adding another Gb will replace a faulty one or add more resources to the current 2 x1Gb kit.
    -xp will also use up to 3.25Gb of memory.
