I've just updated the FAQ below, and one of the updates addresses the problem of enabling DMA on some laptop PCs under Windows XP.

The comment I put in the FAQ was this:
I know for a FACT that some laptop PCs with SIS motherboard chipsets (including models from AJP's range) are not able to have DMA switched on under XP unless a small Win 2K register-fix utility has been run.

This utility (called something like SIS.exe) should be available from the company that supplied the PC.

However, I'll add to it over the next few days, to give the specific file name and to include info about how to run the program - because it needs to run in compatibility mode.
