Hello. I am new around here and I need a little guidance. I just installed a 3500A in my system.
When my NEC is active and the little green light comes on during any activity, my hard drive light seems to flicker in exact tandem with the light on the NEC drive. Is this normal? I am also having some intermittent problems where the system freezes and the green light on the NEC and my hard drive light just flash on and off in sync. On for 1 sec and then off, over and over. Can anyone help? I appreciate any feedback. Thanks!
I have the following:
MB Shuttle AS45GT non raid
P4 2.53 gig
1G DDR400 Ram
Win XP SP2
My system is set up with 2 Maxtor 80g hard drives on the Primary IDE channel.
My NEC3500 is on the secondary channel and is set up as master. It is the only drive on that channel. I have DMA enabled.
