  1. Integration of Intel's SATA AHCI and RAID drivers

    Thanks to both of you for your replies. Well on Vista I have no particular problem, no matter how many applications I run at the same time, even heavy ones, wouldn't affect mouse movement at all. There is definitely something wrong under Windows XP. The mouse itself isn't the issue ; it's a very old microsoft one, even supported by windows 98 default drivers. I'm using it everyday on an old desktop machine running Windows XP and there's no issue at all, even if run X applications at once =) I'd like to add that I did a disk format several times, tried different versions of Windows XP, different drivers ; nothing can be causing this lag as I wanted the system to be as fast as possible ; as a habit, I disabled running services eating memory and didn't install any antivirus/firewall (as I won't even use this XP partition to browse or anything, I will just install games and play).

    Well on Vista it works (if you take a look at my vista's device manager screenshot) ... Anyway, maybe the problem is just something else ... What could be causing such mouse lag/stutters when CPU or HD is working ?
  3. Integration of Intel's SATA AHCI and RAID drivers

    Yes. I've downgraded my BIOS and still couldn't find that option to switch between "Compatible" and "Enhanced" mode. I took a screenshot from my XP device manager : http://img523.imageshack.us/i/33477218.jpg/ Hope it helps :S
  4. Integration of Intel's SATA AHCI and RAID drivers

    I've download that correct version ( Someone mentioned already the BIOS settings to be changed, thus I couldn't find it (and I looked everywhere already), maybe I should downgrade my BIOS (as I'm using the latest version ...). Thing is, that BIOS settings cannot be responsible of that mouse stuttering & overall small performance as everything works fine under Vista ... Edit: Write caching is enabled on Vista so that can't be the problem neither :/
  5. Integration of Intel's SATA AHCI and RAID drivers

    Thank you for your quick reply. The reason why I'm not switching to Windows 7, yet, is that I've been getting used for years to XP's mouse sensitivity (I've been using the same for years as a gamer within my favorite game). Also I'd rather wait for the Final version of the OS, which might be released in October. About your solution ; if you take a look at my screenshot this is exactly what I've done before ! When I tried to install Intel Matrix Storage Manager, it would say my hardware ain't supported ...
  6. Integration of Intel's SATA AHCI and RAID drivers

    Hello and welcome everyone, I'm having an issue with my ASUS G1 laptop (full specs here http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Asus_G1). I'm kinda desperate as no one seems to find any suitable solution. I asked for help on many forums already, so let's say I MSFN's are my last hope So here is my issue : I've been using Vista for a long time, being pre-installed on my ASUS notebook, till I decided to install Windows XP aside. The main purpose of that dual boot system was to set a clean & french install of Windows XP only to run my games and get a real performance boost compared to Vista. My problem is that I'm getting awful performance under Windows XP. For instance, everytime the hard drive is working, mouse movement stutters ; it also takes an unusual time to run not so heavy applications such as Firefox web browser (takes under 20 seconds on Windows XP compared to 3 seconds on Vista). I know that I shouldn't get such a low performance, especially on Windows XP, so there is definitely something wrong here. I immediatly thought about drivers ; so far, when I was done with the XP installation & Windows Updates, I installed the intel chipset drivers, ACPI drivers and last, Nvidia drivers. Nothing helped, the overall performance is still slow, and mouse movement is anything but smooth whenever I run applications. Of course, I tried different drivers (first I've been downloading Windows XP drivers from Asus Website, then the newest versions of Intel's, etc), but nothing helped. I should add that I didn't install any specific driver on my Vista partition and the performance is okay there (no matter how many applications I run, it goes blazing fast and mouse movement remains perfectly smooth and precise). Some people from the official ASUS forums told me about the integration of SATA drivers within my XP installation CD ;I've already tried that, but maybe I did it wrong. Just in case you might need to know, these are all the informations I could gather about my Chipset, on my Vista installation (which works perfectly fine and has no lag at all) : http://img14.imageshack.us/i/22719399.jpg/ I've already burned a custom Windows XP CD, with the following configuration : Under Nlite, I've chose to integrate drivers and make it a bootable CD. On the next step, I hit the Insert button, Single Driver, hit iaAHCI.inf (from the unpacked floppy disk that you mentioned, though I already had it before), and selected the chipset that seemed to match the most : http://img14.imageshack.us/i/79663077.jpg/ Still, the issue ain't gone ... Is there anything I did wrong ? Thanks in advance for your help, and sorry for this long & annoying story
