    F**K SATA. I still like it's speed though :)

    I have a A7N8X deluxe with the UBER BIOS revision 1007. 120 GB SATA. I've the nForce 4.24 driver installed. But when I try to hibernate, (this does sound funny), I get a blue screen that refers to scasiport.sys. And of course when I reboot, scandisk goes through the whole unpartitioned 120 GB which takes another ten years. So, you can imagine how old I must be now. But then of course, time does not mean anything to me - for I AM DEATH

    damn, I WANT it to hibernate - there must be some way of solving the problem instead of just going around it, right?

    I always protect my compouter during blackouts, brownouts, and severe thunderstorms. You only have to have lightening run through your house once to realize a UPS is worthless at protection and smokes like everything else. During these electrical storms and such the smart thing would be to power down. Lightening also likes cable modems and VCRs. You're taking a big risk.

    But that's just my opinion.

    Many thanks to egghead for the cool .sig

    Well if it's any consolation, my IDE drive is faster than my SATA drive (see my Sig for their details). I take it Hibernate worked with your IDE drive in the past?

    Yea, it did. But now my that drive's thoroughly screwed. Anyway, though both the drives are supposed to be 7200 rpm, the sata's performance in copying is noticeably faster.
