On post boot up I see this on my screen.......ULTRA DMA MODE-5 S.M.A.R.T. capable but disabled, is it an advantage to the system? if so, what does it do, and how do I enable it?......(running windows xp home)
smart can give warning of hard drive failure;enable in bios,but probably will use resources ,most h/d's these days are fairly bulletproof.
what DMA is your harddrive running at the minute,in device manager,ide/atapi controllers,mine is ultra dma mode-5.
thanks froggg for the explanation.........ellas...ide ata/atapi controllers
It's an excellent idea to enable SMART - it's provided by the drive manufacturers as an aid to predicting certain types of hard drive failure.It uses no system resources (unless you run a small SMART monitoring program - when resources used are very small). Simply go into the BIOS and enable it.
