IDE channel keeps reverting to PIO mode

  andym99 14:47 16 Jul 2006

Hello people... My laptop was running slowly and after some tests on PC Pitstop, I followed their advice and checked the properties of my primary IDE channel. It was set to PIO mode so followed their instructions and uninstalled the device, rebooted and it re-installed and re-set itself to DMA mode. All well and good but when I check from time to time it has reverted to PIO mode again. How can I get the change to DMA mode to become permanent?... Any reason why it should keep reverting to PIO?... Any ideas? Any help would be appreciated....
