How to tell if Samsung 950 Pro is using Samsung NVME driver and not Windows NVME Driver...

Envy 750-280st
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello Friends.  I successfully installed a Samsung 950 Pro M.2 SSD as a boot drive just fine.  However, it looks like the Windows 10 NVME driver is being used in place of the Samsung NVME driver.  I saw this post here where it says:

 

"Windows is indicating it is using the NVMe driver for this drive."

 

https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Envy-750se-capable-of-M-2-NVMe-...

 

However I do not know how to determine this myself.  I am using a utility called "AIDA64 Extreme" and it's telling me the driver provider for the 950 is Micrososft and the driver version is 10.0.14393.0.  So, how do I get the 950 to use the Samsung driver instead?  Thanks for any help.  :)

Hi,

 

From Samsung tool (Samsung Magician), it shows my machine uses Samsung firmware, no information about driver. It uses Microsoft driver. The tool allows use to check and update firmware but not driver.

 

Regards.

Open the device manager and then expand the storage controller device section. If it is Samsung, it will show it. If aWindows driver is installed,  it will show a standard NVM Express controller device.   I have a Samsung NVMe SSD in this desktop and am using the Samsung NVMe driver as seen in the following image.
