Marvell 91xx Config ATA Device Issues

I am having problems with the Hard Disk Controler Marvell 91xx file/driver. When I go to Disk Management it freezes up, and I have to use the Task Manager to close Disk Manaement.

I have an ASUS P8Z77-V-Deluxe motherboard and have connected a crucial SSD and two WD blue HD's. I have gone to the ASUS site and reinstalled the Mavell drivers with no change.

Thnaks for your help....

This is what Windows 7 is saying...

Are you now using the 3GB SATA headers? are the 6GB headers turned on in your BIOS?

3 gb SATA head for my CD/DVD and yes the 6GB are turned on.


I think I fixed it by doing a restore back before I started to update all the software and drivers off the ASUS downloads.
I plan on going real slow and checking eveything as I download a new driver or any change in software.

Are there some software or drivers that I should avoid???
