I thought I would try my esata out, so I changed it from ide to ahci mode in the bios.. Windows loaded fine and found 2 more device drivers, but when it finished installing them, they didnt work(yellow marker by the side of them)... So I thought ok then, and deleted everything out of the "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers", so when it rebooted it had to detected them all again, including the ones that failed..... It re detected all drivers fine, including the drivers it failed with before,, so I thought great.... Untill I tried the esata hdd.. It just hung and wouldnt run "my computer" until I had turned it back off Ive figgered out theres 2 ways the esata drive works........ 1 If the drive is on when comp boots up 2 If I use ide mode, but then windows dosent automatically detected the hdd and I have to click on "scan for new hardware" from the device manager each time I wanted to use the hdd. So is their a fix for this prob at all?
