Promise ATA133 TX2 IDE card problem


NTFS Stoner
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 ?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
