  1. I've noticed a slow down in my computer over the last several months but really never got right down and checked it untill now. After performing all of the recommended procedures and maintenance without any improvement......... I decided to take a look at my hard drive in the device manager and found out that the drive was running in PIO mode rather than DMA mode, this is not good. (I'm running XP pro) I tried to change it but the setting was grayed out. A little research and I found This Page with a little script to fix it > resetdma.vbs. I ran it and afterwards I was able to set my hard drive to run in ultra DMA mode 5 and the computer is back up to speed. So one thing else to check if you have a slow computer (especially on XP) is if the drive is running in the correct mode. Below are some links for XP, Vista and W7 XP: http://www.cdrlabs.c...ures-t7625.html http://forums.vso-so...s-xp-t2796.html Vista: http://forums.vso-so...ista-t8013.html W7: http://www.thewindow...n-windows-7.htm Good Luck.....MrC
