How do you have those HD's hooked up?

What drive do you have your pagefile setup on?

Hopefully, your OS and games are loaded on that 7200rpm drive...If you can get everything onto that one drive....take out the 5400rpm drives ( temporarily ).....

Ensure that the 7200rpm HD is the only device on the primary channel......

Go into Control Panel-Hardware-Device Manager and check the properties for the Primary IDE Controller.....Here, you want to make sure that the current transfer mode is Ultra DMA5 ( ATA100 )

Go and try this out and let us know how things turn out....I'm almost certain it has something to do with the setup of the HD's...

Good luck!
