Has anyone found a fix for this problem as all the ones I have found so far refer to Intel controllers not AMD
This is really affecting the WAF as well because I have recently gone to the dark side from Intel hoping to fix alot of these silly problems but seems it has followed me
I have even replaced hard drives with new 1TB Samsungs but has made no difference at all.

I swapped my Corsair ram out for a cheapo version which seems to have fixed my problem, however that was Sunday as well.....damn, which one fixed my problem
What update was it?
lol isn't it always the way
Hmmmm i have taken my u beaut Corsiar RAM and put OEM ram in as well trying to troubleshoot another problem and it fixed mine as well but might try the good ram again and see if the problem returns The OEM Ram is a slower ram then the Corsair if thats a possible cause of problems???

Sorry I haven't updated my situation on the thread, I have been preoccupied wit other things (funerals in other countries). haven't had much of a look at the system as a consequence, and probably wont have a good look in a while. from what i have seen the so far the best way to solve this problem is to set your drives to run on IDE in the bios, however this is probably not the best option for your new sata drives. you will also need to reinstall vista (also a problem if you only have an image from the manufacturer and not an install disk, grrr)
thanks for all your responses

I spoke to Assus and they said that it was the intel hard drive driver not playing nicely with vista. I had previously tried installing the latest driver form the intel site but it didnt help. However the link i got from Asus was from thire site and the driver has worked (so far). It seems the repackaged driver somehow worked, i dont understand why but i am happy my computer is not randomly locking up anymore. (yay)
Thanks everyone for your help
