Hard Drive Speed

By mgb022660 ·
I recently went to PcPitStop.com and ran a test for my hard drive and it came back that the Cached Speed is running at about 53% slower than other related systems and I don't know why. I have DMA checked and I regularly defrag my system. It was noted that Cached speed has to do with memory and processor but my memory was running at 97% so it's not that ( I don't think ). Any ideas?? This system works pretty slow. It is a AMD 800 with over 400mb of ram. The hard drive is 27 Gigs broken up into 6volumes running ata 66. Thank you for your help!!

First off; don't always believe what you're told. I say that because you cannot trust utilities (especailly on the web) that provide such information.

Second, if you're running such powerful (compared to most I service) Why isn't it running at the ATA 100 setting? I would assume such capacity drive is capable...

Good luck.

Well, I don't know if you motherboard support cpu plug and play, just in case if you have make a upgrade of your cpu, you know you have to reset cmos jumper and set it up you new cpu. If is not like that, check if you internal cache is enable, because you when any cache is unable the pc becomes slow,check that. And also you have a large hard driver remember that.
Last month I build a pc it was AMD Duron 800 MHZ, you know that motherboards come with a manual that tell you about the bios, checkthe manual too, I didn't have any problem with that pc, is running good, and the CPU has a warranty of 3 years, check that too, maybe could be something wrong with the CPU.
