I purchased a cheap 2 port SATA PCI card so I could upgrade all of the drives in my comp to SATA and I am playing hell getting it to work. When windows (XP PRO SP2) boots up the comp will eventually re-boot and continue this process indefinitely. This happens regardless as to whether I enter my password or if I do nothing and just let it set at the logon screen.
I have tried switching slots and I either get the problem mentioned above or the comp hangs at POST with a blinking cursor and does nothing. If you read the other reviews of the card here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16815280004
other people have problems with this card as well. I didnt think I would have any problems since I am only using this card in a non-raid setting and the drives attached are not boot drives, just 2 HDs for file storage.
I have been fighting with this thing for hours and am almost to the point of just getting a refund but I would have to send it back at my expense and since the card was only $15 it is a lost cause.
Any help in getting this thing working would be greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance!
