Seagate SATAII hdd problem

  1. Hi!
    I have a little problem.I have recently bought a Seagate 160 Gb SATAII hdd but my PC started to behave strangely.(Everything just stops working -especially in some games- without any error report and i have to reset my system)I have no idea why.I replaced almost everything without any succes.So I think my new hdd might cause the problem.Before of that I had a Seagate 80 Gb ATA 100 and my PC worked perfectly.I have an ASUS A7N8X-XE Mb, 2X512 MB RAM Kingmax DDR 400, ATI Radeon 9600 XT VC.So what might be the problem?Maybe my Mb is not compatible with SATAII?

    Some older motherboards do not support SATA-II drives. On that specific drive I believe there should be a jumper that lets you set it to SATA-I. Try that & see if it behaves better.
