whilst browsing the devices installed i came across a reference to the primary ultra ATA controller & the secondary , which stated in red print - this device has a problem - thenwent on to state - the device is not present , is not installed.

any advice as whether i need these devices - the pc works slowly , but gets there. at the moment i have lost sound, but i think this is not related but cannot be sure.

using windows 98.

The ATA controller is for the Hard Drive's and CD drives etc. Maybe this is why your system is running slow
