I have the LSI Logic Sym 8952u controller card.


The card was working fine until I took it out to use it in another computer. When I returned it to the intended computer, the search for the device in the start up takes for ever and when windows comes up, to access the drive takes for ever to do anything.


The drive used to boot up in windows 98 but now it says it not a bootable device.


How do I resolve this problem? Thanks

Yes, and I have also tried it in other slots, with the same results.

When I attach a different brand of drive, it has a little better response time, but nothing like it once was.
