Slow transfer from SATA II (IDE) drive to 3 SATA II Drives configured as RAID (1). Drives wouldn't format until we installed the OS onto the RAID -- but it wouldn't install completely. We boot from the independent IDE SATA II drive but when we try to then copy files back to the formatted RAID (1) configuration the copying is very slow. Drivers from Tyan are updated (both chipset and SATA RAID) and we have set the drives to various configurations -- BIOS contoll, PIO, and DMA.


It appears you have made an error with the RAID configuration. RAID 1 is mirroring and requires an EVEN number of drives unless one is a hot spare. Also, RAID 1 is for redundancy and is slower than a single drive or RAID 0. Verify your RAID configura ... PC Desktops

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.

My PC laptop is running slow, especially when waking up after being in sleep mode. It used to be okay. I got rid of all the superfluous start up programs long ago, so I'm worried that I have malware or such that slipped in through AVG. I've tried to sweep with lavasoft, found some objects, deleted them, no change. I removed AVG at a friend's suggestion, because those constant updates really slowed stuff down. I've heard that good malware will hide and interfere with attempts to remove it. I'm s
