Ever since i bought this new computer, i notice very troublesome times. The computer works amazing with games, speed( Note: XP is like 100 million times faster then W2K as in network speed is concern ) , but i notice i have been getting CRC errors, Volume is Corrupt, or in UT3 1335 errors, etc. Either when extracting files or try installing games, even tho to note: It does not happen when installing every game, just some. Now recently i just found out that its because both of my primary IDE channel's are set to Ultra DMA mode. With my Pentium III i have never seen or heard about CRC errors, and it was running in DMA mode, not Ultra DMA. Now i notice if i set it to PIO mode, the problems goes away. I can install games just fine and extract them just fine, but i did notice maybe 1-2 games still having problem extracting such as COD4 and Crysis, thats why you don't see any benchmarks yet lol , because i can't play them Anyways, i have 2 questions #1 Is there a way to set my primary IDE channels to DMA and not Ultra? #2 Could my Ram sticks be damage? Note: People said if the ram is not working good, thats where the errors come from, however i have no problem playing games, so i am not sure if the ram is trouble, even tho i do plan to buy a brand new 2GB or 1GB stick soon I will continue to install games in PIO mode, until i get the new ram and see how it goes.
