  <pre>Thanks for your input Paul
This only started to happen after doing a online upgrade to 9.10 from=20
9.04.

Was thinking of doing clean install with 9.10 any thoughts?</pre>

My knowledge on this is not comprehensive, but would expect a clean
install to have no effect.=A0 Perhaps a grub reinstall might help, but i
doubt that even.<br>
<br>
Most likely it is something to do with your hardware or BIOS settings.=A0
Did you change your SATA settings?=A0 Some BIOSes allow selection of EHCI
or ATA emulation, and one might work better than the other for you.<br>
