comment Can anyone assist me in determining why my ssds are running so slowly please?
I've not reset the whole bios as I'm a afraid of not having a booting system. I just tried reset the SATA port to IDE, and windows crashes on start up, so I've had to put it back to AHCI. I appreciate your help btw. I'm going to see what I need to do to preserve the BIOS on USB to see if I can try the reset. Also I will try to see what Crucial has on it's site. The Intel SSD Tool box has not reported any issues.

You mean the latest bios? Yes confirmed. Default setting? You mean the whole bios? The only thing not default I believe is the disk boot order and the SATA mode which was IDE by default and then RAID and now AHCI.

Sorry. I've just run HWINFO 64 and confirmed that the ports are indeed SATA III.

But will it work if the script calls START? But for the problem I've outlined that's a nice work around thanks.
