Is it possible to turn off the DMA settings on XP

I tried to overclock like before and my Operating System errors out blaming the hard drive. I have a Western Digital 20 gig 7200 hard drive and the freshest of fresh installs of XP pro. I just need to figure out how to turn off DMA so I can get back above a Gigahertz.


the coolest thing. happened. i figured it out.

i changed in system files then went back to 1.107. i am soooo happy.

thanks for your help
