Yes, that is exactly what I was looking for. If you will look at the bottom left corner of your post you will see My System Specs. Click on it and you will have a link that says update system specs. If you could fill that out it and click save at the bottom, it would be of great help. That way, any time you come here and post, we can look to see the specs without having to ask you again, or on a multi page post have to go back to post #1 to look and see what they are. Look at the bottom of this post and see mine and you will see what we are looking for. Here is a tutorial of how to do it the easy way. System Info - See Your System Specs
No, do not analyze the SSD, but regular hard drives may need it. Personally, I don't worry about it very often. Highlight the drive you want to analyze and click the analyze button.

It is usually in the advanced section under sata mode, sata controllers or storage configuration or a similar name. But, here is exactly how to do it. It should take you about 3 minutes.

Feel free to ask any questions. If you will look at the screenshot of AS SSD you will see 234496 in the top left. It is green, that is your alignment and it being green means it is OK., above that is PCIDE, that is not green and says you are in IDE mode but should be in AHCI mode. The numbers above that is the current firmware on the SSD. and will help you determine if you have the latest or not. Kingston makes several versions of SSDs, so just choose your version and go to firmware and there should be a download for the latest and a download of the instructions. Any questions, please ask.
