Problem with Maxtor sata hd

Hi all.

I have a strange problem with my sata hd from maxtor when i connect my drive to my main board windows will not start up or hangs after a while and when i managed to start up with that drive and shut down the pc it will take more then 10 min but when i connect the drive to my tx2plus card everything works just fine but i just have 1 pci slot on my mainboard and that is taken by my tv tuner. Does anyone know a solution for this.

My pc

Mainboard: Gigabyte - EP45-DS4
Cpu: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16Ghz
Ram: 4gb

Thanks.

I don't think you get my point my tv card is a pci card and my tx2plus is also a pci card and i only have 1 pci slot so when i connect my maxtor to my mainboard the pc crashes but when i connect the hd to my tx2plus card everything is fine, so is there a solution so i can connect the hd to my mainboard without a crash. You get my point now?
