    Getting Hot Swap/Plug SATA to work

    I just installed Windows 8.1 on another SSD and so far everything seems to work as it should... all controllers (ICH10R, Marvell 9128 and Gigabyte SATA 2 show their HDDs in the safe removal window and are not locked when removing them. Also when attaching a new HDD to the controller it gets...

    Getting Hot Swap/Plug SATA to work

    Just tried to find the locking app with "msconfig"... First I tried to disable all non-MS services and startup items, but that did not help Then I tried to disable everything (= diagnostic startup), but that did not help either As it does work in Windows Safe Mode, there must be a difference...

    Getting Hot Swap/Plug SATA to work

    Thanks for the tip! I just tried turning off MS Defender. It did not help... :( I also tried killing as much processes as possible. I could not find the locking process... :( Then I tried rebooting in safe mode, just to figure if it is at all possible and YES, in Safe Mode I can safely remove...

    LSI MegaRAID 9260-8i - WD Red (Intellipower) support

    Not sure what to believe now... When I called WD they explicitly told me that IntelliPower means that the rpm varies between 5400 and 7200 rpm and that this was the most important thing that the RAID controller must support. They told me I should ask for that at LSI (who could not answer this...

    LSI MegaRAID 9260-8i - WD Red (Intellipower) support

    Does anyone know if the LSI MegaRAID 9260-8i support the WD Red line? More specifically the 4TB one (WD40EFRX). I guess the most special thing about the WD Red is the Intellipower (variable rpm of the HDD). According to Anandtech, they do support TLER (default at 7 sec), so they should be fine...

    Gigabyte GV-R587UD-1GD owners: Please help

    Gigabyte just replied to my issue and coincidentally released bios F8 2 days ago... I just tried that bios and F8 actually did solve the issue with Adobe Flash... Since the issue with heavy 3D is a lot harder to trigger, I don't know yet if that one is solved as well I'll keep you informed

    bad news again... Yesterday, as promised, I played some more Starcraft 2... This time, after about 1,5 hours, issue nr2 occurred :( The image got corrupted for about 5 seconds, so I closed Starcraft 2, checked "Event Viewer" and again event 4101 had occurred. I proceeded playing after that...

    Raid6 on LSi 9260-8i -which 2TB drives?

    After some months of testing (including pulling the SATA cable, reinserting it, rebuilding the array, while running a large file copy + running Bart Stuff Test + running DVD Decrypter all at the same - if that isn't stress testing... ;)) I think I can safely say that the Seagate Barracuda LP 2TB...

    So far I havent been able to reproduce issue nr2 anymore... Yesterday I played a little more than 1 hour of Starcraft 2 without issues. Tonight I'll play some more Starcraft 2 on different output ports, followed by some Furmark, to see if the issue is really non-existend... Issue nr1 still...

    What are good specifications to look at in an LCD monitor?
