I think it was IDE Prefetch that should be off (I had this problem on a
AMD 486DX4-133 with Award Bios, turning it on trashed the boot record in
minutes (and many other sectors on the disk too).

Anyone here care to give a link to that program to enable DRAM Prefetch?
My sister has a Duron 750w with VIA motherboard and music and sound pop on
any graphics changes, maybe this is it?
