I've got a hp pavillion 17 e153sa and recently upgraded the hd to an samsung 850 evo ssd. The chipset is the Intel HM86 Express which supports sata 3. I checked and the controller supports sata III but I'm only getting sata II speeds. The bios is up to date and seems to have no option to enable sata 3. I tried another sata 3 drive and that also runs as sata 2 so I'm obviously missing something. Does anyone know how I can enable sata iii for this model?
