do you have any config info about your system. It's usually due to sw issue.

I would go to Device manger/ide-ata controller/primary channel/advanced settings. Look at Transfer Mode (should be set to "DMA if available") & Current Transfer Mode (should be Ultra DMA 5 or 2) on device 0. If it says "PIO", that would explain slow performance. If windows sees some glitches in hdd operation, it will go to a slower transfer mode (from DMA down to PIO). If that's the case, try uninstalling the primary IDE driver (in the "driver" tab) & reboot, then recheck the transfer mode.. Sometimes you can have problems with old motherboard drivers, or a failing hdd. hope this helps.
