    My system is a Dell Inspiron 9100 with ATI Radeon Mobility 9700 (128 Mb). In the Display Properties, it shows that Fast Write is "DISABLED", although my system support Fast Write.

    I tried to do a "Retest" on SMARTGARD, but still the same thing. Any ideas?

    If you are useing the Omega drivers i believe they are locked and not able to change,,,,i believe the latest cars also lock this feature out as it is know to cause stabilty problems

    Robert,

    Are you saying that there is an Option during the installation to use "Fast Write"? I never saw that before. If that's true, that conflicts with what Ssourcer_2002 said.

    Sorry if I sound confused, but I am not sure which is right? If it's true I can change it during setup, I'll simply reinstall

    there is an option on later omega driver installation (as people requested it to be back) i think 2.5.44 doenst have the option, try a newer omega package if u want to enable it, of course it wont bring u a boost on speed and can give u problems -.-
