Intel-Toolbox do not work

Hello,

I have bought a Intel-SSD, ssdsa2cw080g310. The SSD is connected to SATA Port 4.

The Intel-Toolbox do not work. The software is installed, but no button is clickable.

--------------------------------------------------

System:

Mainboard: Asus M2NPV-VM ACPI BIOS REVISION 1401

CPU: AMD ATHLON(tm)64 X2 DUAL CORE PROCESSOR 3800+

RAM: 2 GB

OS: WINDOWS VISTA 32Bit HOME PREMIUM EDITION VERSION 6.0, BUILD 6002 (SERVICE PACK 2)

 

---------------------------------------------------

 

Thanks for help.

With a AMD CPU , you will probabley have to install the Microsoft AHCI driver to get it working.

Search for microsoft article # 922976 , this will show you how to do this , NOW this envolves some Registry Editing . So if you are not comfortable have someone do this for you. One wrong mistake in REGEDIT can mess up the whole thing. Be careful and follow all the steps just as written. you will be fine . The only other option is to reinstall the OS in AHCI Mode from the begaining.

Hello Robert,

now I found out, my system is too old for an SSD-Drive. But the SSD works well.

Reading speed is 218 MB and writing 62 MB. I disabled a lot of functions, like Prefetch and Superseed and looked at the advises.

So my Mainboard does not support AHCI, how can I trim the SSD. Can I use a free software, wiper-tool?

Thanks

I did a little research on the ASUS web site support. they say if you update the Marvell 88SE6320 SAS Controller Firmware to file ver. # 3.1.3200 , AHCI will work on your board this is fact not a guess.

So your board does support AHCI , so if you are going to do this do it right, or buy a new board.
