Hi! I really need your help!
2 weeks ago i purchased
asus a7v266 board with via kt266 chipset
(bios is uptodate)
there is also:
Amd XP 1600+ (1.4Ghz)
Kingston DDR 256Mb
Pine Geforce 2 mx 400 64mb sdram (latest drivers)
Sound Blaster 128PCI Creative (drivers from cd)
Maxtor HDD Udma5 ata-100 ide 40Gb
CD-RW HP 9100+ series 8x4x32 (on the secondary master with ata-66 cable)
CD-ROM (on the same ata-100 cable with hdd) x44
Tekram TV capture card bt848 pci
UPS internal pci Guardian

Avery day, before going to university i format my hdd and reinstall
windows... My new computer had windows98se,windows me,windows xp, but better
work on win98se.

After installing all the drivers (except via's udma,agp ... (4 in 1)
drivers) - all was perfect. But hdd was working at speed 4Mb/s.
Not exactly perfect - in windows xp my soundblaster started crackling and
sounded very terrific... (after disabling udma-5 mode in hdd controllers
menu of hardware configuration) - it became stable....

I though it was broken sound blaster... I brought new SB Creative 4D Vibra
128... after some generic windows' blue screens i finally installed its
drivers... but it was also crackling when dma of hdd was on...

Then i reinstalled sound card drivers to my original (old) drivers from SB
Creative AudioPCI 128 with my new SB card.. It stoped to crackle...

I was happy, but it was not so perfect i thought. Every game, every program
i started - said me that there was an error in file (or maybe disk is
corrupted) and all i had to try and try, but it didn't help....
Scandisk didn't help to - it said :"all is perfect".
So i turned off udma5 in hdd controllers and all programs and games became
playable and executable without errors...

I really need your help...
P.s. via drivers are full of bugs and system incompatibility. Pci latency
patch didn't do anything...
WindowsXP own drivers do the same thing......
I will be very very glad, if you'd help me!

Best regards!
P.s. Reply answer to e-mail please!!!!!!!!
