[Problem]P5K mouse and sounds freezes during IDE-actitity

Hi,

I have problems with an Asus P5K motherboard.
For example, while listening music with Winamp the sound freezes for short time (maybe 1/10 seconds or something) but this happens regularly and it's very annoying. During these short "freezings", the mouse cursor will stop also for a short moment. Music freezes something like "TRRRRR!!" and goes on again...

This only happen with Windows. Everything works well with GNU/linux debian.

I've been searching for weeks on how to fix this very annoying bug. I have the following hardware:

Asus P5K,
Intel Core 2 6420@ 2.13GHz
2 GB of RAM
Habu USB mouse
USB keyboard

Windows XP Pro SP3.

I followed the instructions I found on the following websites:

http://www.techsupportforum.com/hardware-support/motherboards-bios-cpu/174097-asus-p5k-mobo-ide-activity-breaks-sound.html
http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?id=20071014035736062&board_id=1&model=P5K&SLanguage=en-us

I tried to install the latest jmicron driver, I tried to unplug the IDE hard drive, I tried to disable the extra IDE in the BIOS, I tried to disable the secondary IDE channel as well as the second PCI IDE Controller. I tried to revert the Intel ICH9 Family Controller to the Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE controller in the device manager. NONE of these solutions worked for me. I am terribly desperated about this issue.

My current Device manager looks like this:


Please, any help will be very very very much appreciated (like very).

  2. Hi,

    Thank you for your answer. I guess you are talking about the following link http://www.jmicron.com/Driver.htm which I of course tried as I said in my first post ("I tried to install the latest jmicron driver"). In fact I tried the latest and the specific version 1.17.39 I've found here http://www.x-drivers.com/catalog/drivers/sata_controllers/companies/jmicron/models/jmb360/8835.html

    None of these solutions worked.

    I may have not understood your answer, can you please be more precise when you say "use asus link".

    Again, thanks for your time.

    Best regards,
  3. see asus forum for your board many user had the same issue
  4. Well, I come from these forums as you can see in my first post…

    Update. I tried to flash my motherboard with the latest firmware (v. 1201 http://fr.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=yS3ZeqfUdCTCIFT2&content=download).
    Nothing changed…
