1.10 Question:
How to enhance and improve the system performance?


Answer:

You can enhance Hard Disk and CD-ROM drive performance. You can see the improvement when

running Winbench99.

You will want to enable DMA or Ultra DMA support on IDE devices to improve performance, because

this feature enable supporting hardware to copy data directly into memory rather than having the CPU

copy very byte. This capability greatly lowers the CPU utilization of the system on I/O interfaces.

However, you will want to disable this feature if you frequently encounter data corruption during this
feature enabled. To enable DMA or Ultra DMA setting:


     1.       Click Start button -> Setting -> Control Panel. Double click System and Click the

              Device Manager tab. Navigate to Disk drives and double click Generic IDE Disk
              Type01.
       2.     Click the Settings tab and tick on DMA.    Click OK and restart the system. This
       DMA feature will improve Hard Disk        performance under Win95/98. For Windows NT,

       you do not need to do the above steps.


( The CD-ROM steps are same as above but navigate to CD-ROM and double click on your CD-ROM
title. )
