WindowsXP slow to boot

I recently bought a Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 80GB 7200rpm HD. Along with the drive came a Maxtor Ultra ATA/133 PCI card. I followed the installation instructions given (plug in card, load drivers, turn off computer, attatch drives), however, once the Maxtor drive (which contains my OS) is attatched to the card, windows xp takes approx. 5 min. to boot up. The system event log shows that the card didn't respond within the timeout period, and that windows detected errors on the drive during "a paging operation". This only occurs when the HD is attatched to the card. When connected to an IDE bus on the mobo, there are no problems. Anyone have any ideas on what's causing all these issues? Do I simply have a bad card? (Other devices, such as the other HD or cd drives, seem to respond okay when connected to the card).

  1. nobody has any ideas?
  2. But the drive still works? It could be an IRQ conflict, try changing PCI slots.

    What's the frequency, Kenneth?
  3. yeah.
    i would first reseat the card
    then change the slot
    then swap over the IDE cable.

    and yes i tried what they suggested. i even called maxtor tech support and got something about d/l a new driver . did it and no change (
  7. I was messin' around. Don't sweat it. :smile: I just wish I could help, because I'm stumped. :frown:

  8. i gave up. im running my new drive at ata 100 off of the mobo. all problems ceace to exist.
    i wish i knew more as i paid an extra 80 dollars to run in ata 133.
    oh well i spose it will still be the same drive when i upgrade my pc in a year, ill make sure i get a ata 133 mobo this time /sigh.
    thanks all for trying to help, im at my wits end on this one.
    /cheer maxtor !
  9. Hey, how much did you pay for that drive total? I hope it wasn't too much, cuz ATA133 isn't too much faster than ATA100. It's just the burst speed that's faster, I think. But when you do upgrade, your next motherboard will most likely be ATA133. At least you're up and running now. :smile:
