    it seems that lately my drive is running a bit slow. there is nothing wrong in the device manager and was wondering if there is anyway i can make my drive at normals speed again becasue i recently performed tweaks and was wondering if that could do about anything.

    here is a list of the tweaks i did.

    I definitely would not play with "Shut down faster"as altering can have an adverse effect.
    Try 200 if you have to .
    Also on" menu show" may be put in on 100 or 200 max.

    make sure the drive is running in "Ultra DMA Mode 2" or "Mode 4"... and not "PIO" or "Multi-Word DMA". do this by looking at your ide controller in device manager, find which channel it's on, and go it's properties, 'advanced' tab.
