My system was using Ultra DMA Mode-5 for both my DVD-Rom's and Hard-Drive and things were zipping along nicely...

After doing the last Windows Update and installing all 5 critical updates for WinXP something just didnt seem right afterwards...

My Ultra DMA switched to Mode-2 for the DVD-Rom's and my hard-drive is using PIO (which I cannot change to anything else)...

What's happened ??? My system is slow and sluggish now... please help !

If you have a motherboard CD load the EIDE drivers again. If not go to motherboard site and download them

Its probably too simple but have you tried removing the updates (add/remove in xp) as this reverts your system to its previous condition?
