    Even if you don't install the Intel matrix drivers, which to be honest I have had problems with except for the latest version, you MUST install the Chipset Driver (inf). If you don't some of the Chipset Options, Processes, etc won't be setup correctly and that maybe causing your problem.

    I doubt very much the Chipset Driver (inf) would cause you any problems.

    Also you could Load-up you Optimised bios settings and save, just in case any of the power options have been changed.

    So you did not install your chipset drivers and... hmm.. sigh..

    Maybe you should just go back to XP. :)

    Wow, thanks for the advice soldier, unfortunately XP has been retired a year ago.
    I`ll give those inf drivers a try but honestly this particular motherboard has some issues with hard drives, i wonder if it would possibly be a PSU issue?

    Does it? Mine isn't the EP version, but I haven't had a problem with the ICH9r at all, bar some of the 8 Series Intel AHCI drivers (matrix storage). The last of the 7 series were fine and now the latest of the 8 series is too.

    Either which way, the Chipset (inf) drivers aren't going to affect your hard drives in a way that the Intel Matrix Storage drivers could.

    The order Intel recommend:-

    1) Install Windows OS
    2) Install Service Packs
    3) Install Intel Chipset "driver"

    So they normally should be installed before you install Graphics drivers and the like......

    Absolutely found 0 zero zip problems with exactly the same board and revision.
    Did OC it to full 4.00GHz completely stable, using now at 3.6GHz, running RAID so HD software and hardware are just fine with this board.
    Please follow your manual directives, start with your DVD Gigabyte drivers (do updates later), please do not try to alter any steps and you will be successful, believe me.

    Problem solved, seems like there was a bios option enabled somwhere that caused that. I have problems with the an WD6400AAKS if I install the intel chipset and matrix storage drivers, and the only way to make it work properly is not to install those drivers.

    Well like I said above, the Matrix drivers may conflict with an application you have - as some did for me (3dmark vantage specifically).

    But The Chipset "Drivers" - are NOT Drivers as such. The Intel Chipset "Driver"/Inf simply shows the OS what exists Intel hardware wise and configures it for use.

    You Could Create a WDC Diagnostics Bootable CD, or Seagate's SeaTools, or Hitachi Drive Fitness test Cd's - the latter work fine with the western digital drives and make sure all is working with the interface correctly.

    You say your WD6400AAKS has problems, In what way?

    the HD is ok, I had another WD6400AAKS before the one i had now and I had problems with hangs while using windows and i thought that the HD was bad but i sold it and bought another WD6400AAKS but a different firmware and the only problems were in the drivers.
