Raptor 150GB extremely slow


Active Member
Hi all,

I bought a second hand Raptor 150GB recently, and have just put vista 64 on it, but everything seems to be going very slowly indeed. In particular, just before the main windows screen boots, but after that loading screen with the bar on it, there is a blackness that lasts about 5 minutes. The installation of drivers (e.g. the graphics driver) was also extremely slow, and shutdown takes an age.

Is this a duff drive or are there some settings I should have changed for it?

Cheers dudes . I actually threw seatools at it and it didn't even get 1% done before it decided the drive was hopelessly duff. On its way back to sender!
