    There should be an option in the bios for DMA. It probably changed with new mobo.

    ~EDIT :

    I got it fixed

    for people who might have same problem

    in your bios find advanced settings of your mobo and switch it to AHCPI

    thats what i did

    but my games are freezing!

    and hard drive is not the problem can anyone suggest what to do?
