SATA Adaptec controller card problems
Hi there people,
Tried to post email to Adaptec with query, but won't let me post to them. Getting desperate!!
System = PC, Pentium 4, 1Gb RAM. Windows XP.
Bought Adaptec ASH 1205SA PCI 2 port SATA controller card recently.
Have 3 hard drives but only 2 SATA connectors on mobo, so SYSTEM drive is linked directly to mobo, and other 2 drives linked via new card.
SOMETIMES, all boots up fine. Card is installed and recognised, drivers all o.k., drives recognised and work fine.
SOMETIMES, on boot up, it freezes at the point where Adaptec BIOS info is displayed, just before it lists the drives that are connected to the card. It just stops, and I have to reboot (who knows how many times) to get past this. Sometimes it picks up the drives, sometimes it doesn't.
Any ideas? REEAALLY frustrating.
Thanks in advance.
