IPC Topnote F219 UDMA 2 only

Threaded View
My Notebook runs only with UDMA33 ("current device use" UDMA mode 2), but
the SIS - Utilitiy says, UDMA mode 4 is supported. The German Archtec
Support says, the BIOS is responsible and the manufacture Movita does no
longer exist, so there is no BIOS-Update possible. I say, the IDE-cable
(with only 40 "veins") is responsible, because it doesn't support the
UDMA66-mode. Does anyone has this machine and it runs with UDMA66? I also
patched the WinXP-registry, but without effect. The HDD supports 66.

If the BIOS does not support other DMA modes, and there is no updated=20

A long shot, but if this computer can be identified with another=20

the chipset drivers might, possibly, be the solution.  Go to=20
