    once i do a re-install of win98 and then install via drivers (Doesnt matter wat ones) i get a HD score of 24000 for Sisoft Sandra, then if i try to change the Via Drivers to a newer/older version my HD scores go down to 18000. Even if i go back to drives using with origianal score it still does this. Only way to beat this is to re-install windows then re-install via drivers.


    anyone else have this problem.

    Yes, it’s bloody frustrating. Try, defragging your system, I find that this often helps bring them back up (but not as much as they initially were)…

    If you've got an extra pci slot and some spare change install a promise controller card (or brand of your choice) for your drive. That should help with the transfers and it will also give you some extra expansion room to boot.:p

    It has often been said that Microsoft's IDE drivers are better than the ones Via produce - I guess the solution is to not install the 4in1s in their entirety, leaving the IDE driver section out.

    I don't know what to do though *after* you have installed the 4in1s, to get the original drivers back. Have you checked the M$ website to see if the drivers are available there?
