What driver do you have listed in device manager > IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers > Intel 5 Series SATA AHCI Controller, right click > properties > Driver tab?

Either what Dave said or go to control panel-uninstall programs and see if intel rapid storage technology is listed. You can have IRST installed and use the msahci driver.

Okay. Uninstalled Msahci drivers on reboot the Msahci reinstalled but I'm now showing the Intel AHCI installed also. See Snip.

Now I have no idea what driver the system is actually using.

The Msachi drivers do I disable them or is there a way to find what driver is actually being used or a setting somewhere to choose which to use.

The Intel could be the ones the system is using but I don't know how to find this out.

If you havs AS SSD open it up. It will tell you in the top left corner what driver you are using. You don't have to run the test.

Also, On that shot you showed, click the driver tab. It will tell which driver you are using.

Both of essenbe's suggestions will work.

Msahci.

Here is the Intel tab with more info. It is the AHCI and was not my original driver.

Ouch.......

That is a very old Intel matrix driver, with no Trim available, not good for a SSD.

Don't know why the new driver won't install, let me check some things, I'll get back to you.

The AS SSD is showing msachi driver, strange.

Post a snip of the expanded IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers window.
