View Full Version : Weird glitch with GA-K8N51GMF (NForce 6100)

I've purchased a GA-K8N51GMF motherboard to have a PCI-e slot without throwing away the rest of my rig.

I've been running this new mb for a week now, no problems so far but there's one thing odd about it. Since I installed the chipset drivers, the "remove hardware" icon appeared into the taskbar. The problem is that it points to the S-ATA hard disk. :retard:

Now, I understand S-ATA is hot swappable but it's kind of weird to have this icon shown all the time. Not to mention that once, upon unplugging a USB flash drive, I incorrectly "disconnected" the hard disks from Windows instead! :o

Anyone had the same problem. I swear it's the first time I see something like this.

Yes that is how NForce4 chipsets are.

I have that exact same mobo as you on my other rig, and get the same thing, same with my DFI.

I hate it :( Oh well, I tried getting rid of it, but you really can't. Good thing safely remove hardware is not a requirement for XP.

Yeah I got used to it by now.

So it's normal then.

Pretty lame, I hope it get fixed in a future driver release. That icon is disturbing.
