So u reckon its my IDE drivers, I do have Nvidia Nfoerce2 chipset.....
I also have my Optical drive as a master to my cd rom... on the primary channel
And my 2 HHD's together on the secondary channel again slave mastered to each other...
I first assumed it was a media problem, but now well, you's are the experts....
So u think I should uninstall my motherboard drivers?
But what would I use in its absence..?
EDIT : for some bizarre reason, I am being drawn towards the IMAPI reasoning...
I dont know why, I just feel as though it could be, seems though this seems to be the process that really bogs down my PC after it Locks up...
hia again, sorry to be a pain, just tried with Nero Burning Rom, and nero did not work, gave me the following log...
