I am still having some trouble with my system.
1 ghz AMD, 256 mb ram, 30 gb disk and 6 gb disk, savage4/32mb video card, 56k modem,
System will lock up for no apparent reason. No error messages. I do use Adobe Premier 6 for video editing and it locks all the time, but that may be for other reasons.
I recently ran across www.pcpitstop.com
and ran the analysis they do on the system on-line.
Before, all the disk drives were set for "PIO" that has been changed to IDE.
The analysis reports the system is fine, except for "uncached" disk performance which is reported at 0.41 for both disks. They say it should be running at 3.9x for this system.
I have no idea what could be killing my disk performance, and/or if this could be a reason for my 'lockups'.
Any ideas out there?
