i have the latest bios, and xp drivers for this card, the problem is this. i take the card out and the pc is at desktop, fully loaded in 20 seconds flat.. 100% useable. i put the card back in and i see the desktop in 15 seconds, but no taskbar for about 60 seconds, then 5 seconds of loading and the pc is at a fully useable desktop. This is nothing to do with networking before i get told to disable this that and the other. tried all that b4 i realised it was the controller card. the card runs 4 hard drives., unplugging the hard drives and im booted in 20 seconds again. It is not 1 drive playing up, i disconnected each 1 in order etc to check that. still the same. any ideas anyone ?
