LAG on my brand new PC

#1

Quick question.

I just bought my brand new Barebone PC.
ASUS T2-P Delux.
P4 3.2Mhz HT
Sapphire 9800Pro 128MB
1024 DDR cas2
120Gig SATA
PX-116A
PX-712A

I have installed XP Pro.
But some times the PC just hangs for a few seconds.
I have scan for virus and spayware but nothing.

Can it be that the Plextor drives i causing this? :confused:

I am not realy sure what is.

Greetz, Myst

From what you’ve posted here and in other threads I think you need to plug your Roms into the Secondary IDE Channel on your motherboard because the board may be allocating the Primary IDE Channel to the SATA Hard Drive (Mine does).

I think it already is on the second IDE Channel cause in my BIOS it says:
Primary Master = none
Primary Slave = none
Secondary Master = PX-712A
Secondary Slave = PX-116A
Third Master = Maxtor 120GB SATA
Third Slave = none

From your first post on another thread:

=== Scsi-Device-Map ===
CdRomPeripheral : Generic STEALTH DVD St323dk Port 0 ID 0
DMA: Off
CdRomPeripheral : PLEXTOR DVD-ROM PX-116A3 atapi Port 2 ID 0
DMA: Off
CdRomPeripheral : PLEXTOR DVDR PX-712A atapi Port 2 ID 1
DMA: Off
DiskPeripheral : Maxtor 6Y120M0 atapi Port 3 ID 0
DMA: On

Have you enabled DMA for the 2 Plextors since then?

Here is an screenshot of all my IDE channels
PS. My burning problem is still not solved :a
I have made three succesfull burn but the again failed burns.


#6

Perhaps I should mention that when my burn failes the two drive disapear from my computer.

Here is an image of one of the failed burn DVD’s

Hi Mysterio

Your images are not showing!


#9

Go here for all your help with your ASUS T2-P Delux. www.abxzone.com

Most likely you didnt configure your BIOS settings properly. So check out the forum, allot of people are helpfull on there.


#10

:confused: I can see the images just fine :confused:
perhaps you must enable HTML in you profile settings…


#11

Denisimo,

Thx 4 the forum I will check it out :iagree:


#12

Let us know how things go Mysterio. I suspect it has something to do with the S-ATA/IDE combination. I have recently installed a S-ATA PCI controller in my computer and I have too experienced lock-ups in Windows XP. Burners all work fine but when I’m working on my system it will sometimes completely freeze for a couple of seconds. I don’t know what’s causing this but I’ve ordered a new computer (barebone) to replace my current desktop anyway so I didn’t want to spend too much time on it.


#13

Gamefreak,

Ofcourse I’ll let y’all know how it went on the other forum.
You guys helped me allot, I also recomended this forum to my friends :wink:

I dont have allot of money to buy another PC :sad: and I can’t live without my Burner either :frowning:

Hi Mysterio

Your images are showing now, I must have been looking at your post before you uploaded them.

I see a problem straight away. The images show your PX-712A is set to Ultra DMA mode 4 which is not correct. It should say Ultra DMA mode 2. I guess this would be caused by an incorrect setting in your BIOS so I would look there first.

Hope this helps,
Taroth

Taroth,

:iagree: That is what others are saying aswell.
I am not an Bios man dunno were to start :confused:

But in the picture it says that the device 1 is set to DMA mode 4, but isn’t device 1 the slave???

My Burner is set to master.

plus in the log of NERO it says:
=== Scsi-Device-Map ===
CdRomPeripheral : Generic STEALTH DVD St323dk Port 0 ID 0
DMA: Off
CdRomPeripheral : PLEXTOR DVD-ROM PX-116A3 atapi Port 2 ID 0
DMA: Off
CdRomPeripheral : PLEXTOR DVDR PX-712A atapi Port 2 ID 1
DMA: Off
DiskPeripheral : Maxtor 6Y120M0 atapi Port 3 ID 0
DMA: On

I see that both drives says that the DMA is OFF but how can that be.

plus each time a burn failed both drive disapear from my computer.

I AM SO CLOSE TO THROW THS SYSTEM OUT OF THE WINDOW.
AND I LIVE ON THE 5TH FLOOR :a

Hi!

Ultra DMA mode 4 occurs when using an 80-pin ide cable as opposed to the standard 40-pin ide cable which results in UDMA mode 2. There is nothing to worry about in that.

CU!


#17

All my optical drives are attached to 80-pin cables and they all show up as UDMA mode 2. Or are you referring to a particular drive scitech?


#18

Hi!

I have a pioneer dvd-106 dvd-reader only. This device when connected to an 80-pin cable gives UDMA 4, and when connected to 40-pin results in UDMA 2. This option (the type of cable ATA33(40 pin) or ATA66/100(80-pin)) can be changed through bios. I have set it to AUTO.


#19

Hi Mysterio

Your PX712A is not set at Master as Nero reports it on Port 2 ID 1 which is Slave. I would suggest you check the jumpers on your 2 Roms as you may have them both set as Master. If they are not then you are using a 80 Pin cable the wrong way around (Blue should be for board, Black for Master and Grey for Slave).

You could also try swapping your cable with a 40 Pin type after you have checked Master/Slave settings.
