IDE Controllers

By kbatesjr ·
I have a P2 300mhz 64mb ram sys.
Intel (r) 82371AB/EB/MB PCI Bus Master IDE
Controller. Both Primary(dual fifo} and
secondary (dual fifo) say device not present
not working properly ,or does not have all
the drivers installed. I have updated the
drivers .I have cleared all registry settings
and reinstalled. The PC surf's fine but with the compatability mode paging everthing local
is a LITTLE slow. Any advice greatly appreciated.

Have you tried setting your bios setting back to default configuration. You may also want to check and see if you can use the older drvrs for now, and then update them.

Have you by any chance loaded an ATAPI cdrom device driver in config.sys...this too will force win9x into compatibility mode sometimes.

Also a good idea to check the bios, (reset to default not a bad idea, but most bios will auto detect anyways.)but try to make sure that bios can automatically manage pci resources. there's the chance you may be trying to manually manage pci IRQ resources and have generated a conflict.

could also remove these devices from device manager listing, and allow windows to re-install,if the manufacturer provided a cd with this system of mother board resource files, then use that cd for the drivers.

Good luck...

Search the Registry for an entry called "NOIDE" If found, delete entry and reboot.
