Not BIOS Setup Program have the same options. It depends heavily on who
created the BIOS. TBH, the reason it took me just over 3 weeks to solve
the problem on my side was because I at first also thought it was
The setting on my BIOS for 32-Bit Disk Access is hidden very deep, and
I have to go through 4 options just to get to it, which is also why I
didn't at first find it.
You'll maybe find it under HDD Options, but thats just a guess. As I
said, every BIOS is different.
There are a couple other things you can try, just to be sure it isn't
your hard disk that is failing:
- Contact your PC manufacturer for assistance in finding the BIOS
settings you're looking for, or a BIOS update that you could apply.
-*Updating your BIOS is a risky business at best, and should be done
with caution. If something goes wrong during the process, you could
end up turning your motherboard into a paperweight.*-
- If your BIOS supports it, enable the S.M.A.R.T (Self Monitoring And
Reporting Technology) option. The file I've attached to this post is a
utility that you can use to read the S.M.A.R.T data which will help
determine if the fault is the hard disk or not.
- A lower rated (or failing) power supply can also cause these
problems of "clicking" noises in a hard disk when it doesn't get
enough power because you're pushing the limit of the PSU. If it is
possible for you to do so, try a higher rated power supply. Ask a
qualified technitian to help you if you're not sure.
- As a last resort, plug your hard drive into another machine as a
slave drive to see if it delivers the same problems. Use caution in
doing this, as a single misstep can screw-up your Vista installation
on the drive. If you're even marginally unsure of how to this, then I
suggest you refer to your local computer dealer.Hope that helps.
Keep me posted on your progress.
