    Yes same dillemma here. IF u set sata to work as IDE does it lower performance, if so how can i make it to work SATA. In the asus driver cd suppplied, it has a AHCI driver but i don't know how to install it, u have to burn it ona disk or something? if u guys get the file extracting and email me at sathish101us@gmail.com , that would be great so i can burn it.

    arrgh, getting angry already, ordered mine about 8 days ago from a local electronics chainstore but as the case/gpu wasnt in stock, its taking longer then expected:(

    configuration:
    cpu Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 2,0GHz
    ram 2048MB DDR2 667MHz
    hdd 160GB 5400RPM
    gpu nVidia GeForce 8600gs 256MB
    £726/$1490(thanks to uber low exchange rate)
    and if anyone yells about cheap online stores then:
    $1150 + $160 shipping + unknown import tax + no local guarantee repair = not worth the effort


    would love a 8600gt but paying extra $350/£170 for a little better graphics and fancier case on Inspiron 1520 is a bit too much, hell even this has gone waay over the initial budget:D

    solved! I sued nlite to streamload intel sata drivers into my xp-disc and was able to install with ahci enabled. Only problem I have right now is that hibernation seems to crash xp...

    k, guys i managed to fix the TEEEEEEEEEE noise using rmclock. use this thread to info http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=143291&highlight=s96s high pitched
    It is basically the c4 state and it has to be disabled to get rid of the noise.

    Here are the steps.
    Download this version http://forum.rightmark.org/topic.cgi?id=6:1217

    1.Settings tab-run when windows starts via regis key.
    2. Management tab-uncheck both use os load manage and run HLT
    3.Management tab- under cpu default settings, pull down cpu defined fid/vid
    4.advance settings tab,under processor- disable both c4 and hard c4states
    5.advance settings tab, under platform 1-uncheck enter c4andc3 on command, check enable popup mode, check disable c4 mode, check enable c5&c6, check enable slow c4-exit.
    and thats it the noice will be gone w/ loss in battery life!

    try it , it works for me.
