Dissappeared Advanced settings??
Posted on 2006-07-07
I had a system with the following configuration:
Celeron 1.7 GHz
Intel D845PESV Mobo
384 MB of RAM
Segate 40 GB 7200 RPM HDD as Primary Master
Asus CDS520/A CDROM as Primary Slave
Sony DRU810A DVD writer as Secondary Master
LG CDRW as Secondary Slave
SIS 305 32 MB AGP card
All the drives are connected with 80 conductor cables.
OS - Windows XP professional with SP2
Yesterday i got an GeForce 6200 256 MB AGP card. I decided to install it, so i removed the drivers for my old SIS agp card from the Add/Remove programs. But the uninstallation failed giving some inf errors. I didn't care about them, swithced off the system, changed the cards and restarted.
After restarting windows started in low resolution mode indicating drivers are not there for the nvidia card and prompted me for the drivers. But to my surprise it started installation of all the devices in the background like drives, usb, mobo drivers, LAN card and others. It indicating that it is finding and installing these devices through popups in the system tray.
I installed the drivers for the nvidia card and everything is fine, up and running.
But i found that the Advanced settings tab in the Primary and Secondary IDE channels property pages is missing. Only General, Driver, Details, Resources tabs are present.
Through Nero info tool i found that my slave devices have DMA off and only Master devices are running in DMA mode.
I think all my IDE devices support DMA. Am i correct?
In the device manager, under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers it is Intel 82801DB Ultra ATA controller
My question is how to get the Advanced Settings tab back?
Any help is appreciated. Many thanks in advance.
