In Device manger against IDE ATA/Atapi Controllers when clicking the + sign to see the list I have the following items. Can someone confirm if these are correct for a Nvidia NForce4 Chipset SATAII Motherboard please.

Nvidia NForce4 Parrallel ATA Controler
Nvidia NForce4 Seriel ATA Controler
Nvidia NForce4 Seriel ATA Controler

On my older machine running XP Home with a VIA Chipset and SATA HDD I see another device which is SCSI Devices and no mention of Parrallel ATA this I think there is a setting on in the BIOS which isn't right. Help Please.

Also got a strange problem with my Fan on a AMD Heatsink.

I have just checked my IDE ATA/Atapi controllers and they are exactly the same as yours.

Thanks for the reply and support! At least this problem is sorted. Can I ask was HDD you have ?
