I am experiencing two problems, probably associated with eachoter.
1: A "freeze" during bootup. When the text "Starting Windows Millennium..." appears, the coputer freezes and there is activity for up to five minutes. Then you heard the HD spin up and everything works fine.
This problem appears about 90% of the times I start the computer. I tried removing the SCSI HDs and controler-card. This might have helped, but not completely.
2: As soon as I connect the SCSI controler-card and more than one SCSI HD, The computer runs as if in syrup. Loading WinME, running programs, nothing takes less than 5 minutes open.
This problem appers, as mentioned, as soon as I connect more than one SCSI HD, sometimes even only with one, and it seems (though I'm not sure) to getworse the more more discs I add. (A total of three)
The SCSI card is a NCR card from 1993. The drives are two Quantum Empire 1080S and one Quantum Fireball 1080S. The card is terminated, and so is the drive at the end of the cable.
For the Empire drives, the jumper "ES" is set, and I haven't been able to identify it's purpous.
I have tried diffrent cables.
Thanks in advance!
