I have recently purchased an ssd, I have noticed the controller is IDE, I have looked into the bios and cannot locate a setting/switch to enable AHCI, what can I try to enable ? All Thoughts appreciated.
Win7 home premium 64 bit
Primary drive Intel 520ssd 120 gb
Secondary drive Seagate momentus xt 500 gb

had installed my intel 520ssd and didnot seem to be quite as fast as the seagate hybrid I am replacing, which got me looking, hence grabbed drive meter gadget for desktop, info on drive meter says they are ide. Any ideas as to the slowdown, not huge but noticeable, actually see the hour glass again (sucks). While picking your brain is there a way to get past 500gb hard drives (bios) on this computer?

If your SSD is Advanced Format, see this page. Not really sure if this even applies to SSD drives.

Just to follow-up I have a dv6t that I installed a samsung SSD drive. The Samsung magician drive software warns that the system is not running in AHCI mode. There is no setting in the Bios to change. Yes, it is running slower than it should. Bios Insyde F.0A
