3.1 MB/s WD 320 AAKS? Need help... - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
Thank you guys for answers. So, I was fighting with it for couple days, and what I got is:
- there were no yellow marks in device manager
- SATA configuration was set on IDE (not AHCI or RAID)
- I confirmed it on 3 different operating systems
- when I tried to install jmicron sata drivers, it says that I don't have jmicron device on MB or something like that
- I don't know what's PATA, but I guess it isn't it
- I have downloaded and install every updated driver or utility I found
- I have diagnosed Memory (it was fine)
- wrote to ASUS, then to shop where i've bought my pc and nothing (ASUS told me that MB might be broken and I should give it for service, and shop told me that something might be broken and I should give it for service)
And today after so many test, formats and so on it is working (for now, cause sometimes I got it working after format but not for longer than 30 minutes)
And why? About 1,5 hour ago dad told me to remove dvd drive (liteon, IDE cable)
I did about 4 tests in HD Tune = average transfer 89MB/s, CPU usage 2.1%
Amazing...

So now i ain't got any ROM
What do You think - why it is working now? Why there's conflict between those devices (HD and DVD)? Maybe MB is really damaged? Or maybe it all about settings?

If possible, i would test the drive in a different computer.

There could be a conflict with the DVD and Drive, but very doubtful.

Got results!, it took quite a long time but computer is working so far (ab. week).
What I've done was:
I send it to shop - they send it back to me with new hard drive
And what I've got was 3MB/s on AAKS (again)
So I send it again with postscript: "BROKEN SOUTH BRIDGE MARVELL PATA CONTROLLER and its number" (this information I;ve got from ASUS service - very scrupulous btw)
And they send it back to me with new MB , I guess I might do the same next year and write them to change whole hardware

anyways IF ANYBODY GOT SIMILAR PROBLEM - IT IS DAMAGED MOTHER BOARD (Marvell south bridge exactly) (probably)

Now HD tune gives me result of 63MB/s and 1,5CPU usage, which isn't best results for WDC AAKS but its working nicely (if anyone knows how to make it ab. 90MB/s pls write)
