JMB36X IDE Setup locking up Vista 64

  1. I have vista 64 Ultimate and it just started locking up on start up.

    I found the culprit in my start up list. But this seems to be of some importance especially since eventually I would like to mess around with raid.

    But when I disable this my pc works fine if it is enabled it boots up and all looks normal but I am unable to do anything. I can move the mouse around and click on stuff but nothing opens etc.

    Thanks Dominic

    If it works in safe mode, go to Device Manager and uninstall the JMicron controller. Let it detect it as "Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller", it works much better. At least that's my experience - nothing but problems when trying to install any JMicron drivers.

    Which motherboard are you using? I think my P5N-D used to have the same problem when I had it... JMicron drivers gave me such a headache. Unfortunately, there usually aren't two different IDE controllers on one board (i.e. both JMicrons) so it can be a real pain to get working properly. Even the nvidia drivers were buggy on that board. So glad I got rid of it lol.
