Just learned by buying both Western Digital and Seagate SATA 300's for use on a ,obo whose SATA driver is only for 150.
The Western Digital's come with jumper [no jumper] defaulted to 300 speed. To use with a 150 one must put the jumper on a specific place. Similar for Seagate, EXCEPT, they come default jumpered to 150 and the jumper gets removed for 300.
Just thought that it is possible that I was not the only one not aware of that. First link to WD second to Seagate.
I don't like Maxtor's et al so do not know about them.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
