I had several crashes with skype and hibernate. Thats a known problem with newer than 126.96.36.199 versions.
My question - in the old xp and ide days windows slowed down the hdd after several hdd crashes automatically and on e had to add a registry key to stop xp doing that.
Is Windows 7 doing the same?
I am on a asus notebook and and Intel ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller
