Intel RST Service (Rapid Storage Technology)

[ Edited ]

My HP Pavilion Elite HPR PC shows an icon in the lower right corner of the task bar the Intel Rapid Start Technology that has a yellow triangular shaped symbol with an exclamation mark in it over the RST icon and when I click on it there appears a pop up box with the message that the RST is trying to connect to the service.  It has been on and in green condition before but it has been in the yellow state for some time now.  When I check further the help is useless to try to further diagnose the problem.  Does anyone know what the Intel RST service is, what it does and, most of all, how do i get it started again? I am using Windows 7 64 bit OS.
