Windows 7: HDD Slow Transfer Speed / No Option for PIO/DMA

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
HDD Slow Transfer Speed / No Option for PIO/DMA

Hey guys,

I'm hoping someone here can help me with my problem my HDD speed is really slow for extracting a 1.2G file the speed is no longer higher then 2149kbs and it takes 40 - 50 minutes to extract.

I've done my research in what it could be so i checked if the drive was in PIO mode, but when i go to device manager - IDE settings, i have two channels; ATA channel 0 and ATA channel 1 when i go to advanced settings on both of them it does not have any devices listed... now i'm running out of ideas on what to do, i've done a fresh installation off windows 7 aswell.

P.S - im not very experienced with PC's so i don't know all this BIOS stuff.

Hope you guys can help.
