I asked my host to enable it in bios and he did so when i go into cpanel and press:

Disk hda5 (/) No DMA! (Click to Enable)

i get this message:

EIDE Hard Drive Optimizations Enabled
/dev/hda:
setting 32-bit IO_support flag to 1
IO_support = 1 (32-bit)



then i go back to that page and it still says Disk hda5 (/) No DMA! (Click to Enable)


what is the problem?

Go on, have a guess
Only your server provider can really answer that question, if the DMA flag in the OS is really not setting. It could be that:

1. The device doesn't support DMA (in which case it must be very old)

2. The device already has DMA enabled but the driver for it in the OS you're using doesn't detect it

It might help to know which OS and kernel you're using, but if you're running a supported OS with an up to date kernel, only your server provider will likely be able to help.

What do you get when running this command at the prompt:
hdparm -c1 /dev/hda
