If you boot into windows, go to device manager and expand IDE/ATA/ATAPI Controllers and tell me the entries at the bottom. You should have one that has AHCI in it's name.

I think that if it is working it should be left alone assuming that it is already running in AHCI mode because of the second setting and I use windows backup for my ssd

It works OK for me, but I always try to keep more than one image on different disks just in case. There is also no reason why you cannot use more than one backup method

Another thing you could do to find out is to see if trim is working
type (as admin) in a command prompt

fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify

If the result is '0' TRIM is enabled.

Right click on the ICH9R, go to properties, click the details tab, click the drop down box, scroll down to children and tell us what it says.

While you are in the command prompt, after doing as Pooch suggested, type powercfg -h off That will disable Hibernate and save you 8 GB of space on your SSD. But you won't have hibernate in your shut down options.
