I have this experience on 4 mobo's in the past years. An Asus AV8, asus 7nx8 (some like that), abit AN8 and my new dfi NF4-DAGF board
Thanks you are most likely right, but I took it to a local computer shop, I don't have an xp sp2 disc. So what exactly was the problem, just the chipset drivers or the ide drivers?

I suspect it is a little of both the chipset drivers or the ide drivers from the cd or nvidia's website. your computer will be faster without installling the sw ide driver (you have the option to not install it), but it still seems to slow up a little bit with just the chipset drivers.

xp sp2 will install it own chipset drivers, you might lose a feature or two such as gigabit networking, but then again you probably don't have a gigabit network installed (I do, so I use the drivers).

this is more info


NVIDIA IDE SW Driver Information
---------------------------------
The NVIDIA IDE SW driver replaces the ATA drivers (that come with Windows)
with drivers that are optimized for nForce2/nForce3/nForce4-based desktop computers.

The NVIDIA IDE SW driver reduces the storage sub-system bottleneck, enabling
the processor and other system level hardware to be more productive and
efficient.

Installation of the NVIDIA IDE SW Driver is required to enable the NVIDIA RAID
solution. If you are installing NVIDIA RAID into a NEW Windows Operating
System, a floppy disk with the NVIDIA IDE Drivers must be created to enable
installation of NVIDIA RAID.

In most cases, the NVIDIA IDE SW driver is not a requirement for your operating
system to work properly.

So I got word back, they can not find anything wrong with it, they don't know why its slow in windows. They say that running different OSs it runs fine, but windows is a problem. Each time it says 100% computer use, and they can not find any hardware issues.
