Reconfigure Aspire SSD caching on Windows 10 v7


I have upgraded to Windows 10 on my Aspire V7 482pg (5861). I installed all the drivers recommended on the support page and have not run into any significant errors. However, this particular laptop comes with an SSD for caching, and I was not able to reconfigure it to do this. The software ExpressCache I used before on Windows 8.1 doesn't seem to be compatible with Windows 10.

Y at - it an another software caching that I should try to use? One of the downloads on the support page is Intel Rapid Storage (even though the description on the page shows a quick start, it is certainly a fast storage that has been installed). At present, the only thing Rapid Storage seems to do is reduce the amount of energy during periods of inactivity.

Should I try to configure the system to use Smart Response? It is even possible with this version of rapid storage technology?

Any help would be appreciated,

Thank you



I have the same laptop and I faced the same problem. I downloaded the driver for Acer ME600 ExpressCache from the support page, changed the installator and now the SSD caching works ok. Link

Hope this helps

P.S Intel Smart Response in ' t supported by our chipset

  • Problem starting Windows 8 (associated with quick start + Intel Smart Response Technology SSD cache)

    I have a problem with the fast start-up of Windows 8. When I shut down my PC everything works fine, but when I turn on the PC, Windows will load until a certain point and then suddenly start screen appears again. The second departure is always successful.

    I discovered, when I turn off the Quick start, the computer starts without error on the first attempt. It goes the same for when I disable Intel Smart Response Technology (SSD cache). There are no problems when I use Hibernate mode.

    Recently I did a BIOS update, so I don't know if there is a setting in the BIOS that is may cause this error?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

  • Y410p SSD Caching support


    I just got my y410p. The model that I have included the SSD. However, while it is visible in the software intel so fast, there is no option to speed up. There is a tab named perfomance instead, and that refers only to a feature, no possibility to use the SSD as a hidden energy saving.

    The hard disk is configured as AHCI disc and I am running windows 8.

    Any ideas/thoughts?

    Thank you


    Hi Arthenios,

    If the status of the fast Intel, your system may use the Expresscache to cache the SSD.

    I saw a Y510p using preinstalled express cache.

    to check if the expresscache is your SSD caching software, you can follow this Post

    If it is properly cached with express cache you shouldn't worry.

    Hope this helps,


  • Envy 15-j051sa mSata SSD Cache TS

    Envy TS 15-j051sa mSata SSD Cache for the 1 TB 5400 HGST HTS541010A9E680.

    The manual States "Support for the SSD drive 24-GB mSATA (not available on computer models equipped with system - 16834 memory or 12288-Mo)". As I have all the conditions, Intel processor, 8 GB of ram, the question is can I just install it and everything works as if by magic?

    Or what I need to do anything about it, or to perform any installation? I noticed Intel RST is running and that the system is working normally.

    Any help or experience would be helpful (apart from the disk of 1 TB of pit and replace it with a large SSD!).

    Thank you.

    OK, for someone else to end up here

    It worked for me:

    • Bought a 24 GB SSD mSata off eBay (very cheap).
    • Make sure that it is the type of partition MBR (I used an external box with Mini PCI-E to SATA 22Pin mSATA).
    • Make sure that the Intel Rapid Start technology is disabled in the Bios. (Appears only if the mSata is installed).
    • Windows 8 (.1) boot in SafeMode (this is where I'm wrong).
    • Run the Intel Rapid Storage Technology-> Performance-> activate acceleration.
    • Reset (it works!)
    • Activate the technology Intel Rapid boot in the BIOS (I don't know if it improves things, seems to work OK without him)

    A start power button to start screen for ready office is 17-18 seconds. Note that I have several services running SQL 2008 R2 Server and all the HP utilities installed as new.


  • Want to Phoenix 810qe: SSD cache fails on desire 810qe

    A few weeks ago I noticed a problem (probably unrelated) which led me to look at the system event logs and I was surprised to see that I was getting all them complain about a bad block on a "hard drive" I didn't know, I had three or four errors a minute.  A little poking around revealed that it was the machine provided with 16 GB mSATA SSD cache.  Apart from the log messages, the computer seems to work very well, so I put off to worry about this.  Now, with the end of my warranty approaching, I decided to call and see if I could get a replacement.  (I'm now up to eight messages per minute).

    After a few long and frustrating calls, I finally got someone to direct me to the good test to run, who immediately said "Test failed.  Recommended replacement car. »

    Unfortunately, they are not ready to send me a replacement, and I'm not ready to wipe my machine and send it to them to play with for a few weeks, I'm looking for other solutions.

    My questions are

    1. Do I need to worry about this?  It is a cache, so, theoretically, if it fails, it could simply not give me the performance boost, but it won't actually hurt anything.  But what I saw on the web implies that there are two ways that SSD hiding can be configured ("enhanced" and "expanded") and one of them may cause corruption if it fails.  The support guy I spoke had no idea.
    2. How is it difficult to replace the SSD drive with a new one?  They don't seem to be very expensive, and looking inside the box, he's not physically difficult to replace.  But I suspect that there's more involved in the passage.
    3. If not, can I disable the cache and get him out?

    Any help will be appreciated.


    Just in case someone comes to this page with a similar problem...

    After another telephone conversation with a supervisor, HP agreed to send a part... purpose of replacement only if they could schedule a technician to come to my house to install it.  For free.  I agreed.  The tech came out yesterday morning, challenge a screw, jumped from the old disk, jumped into the other in screw them and started the machine.  Everything worked.  No software at all.  It's all plug-and-play.  They sent me a disc identical to that which failed (16GB), but he expressed the view that it would be putting end to a larger.

    It turns out that the machine uses no hardware caching, but rather the software called ExpressCache, where my confusion of not being able to determine what mode of caching (material) that he used.  This software manufacturer said that it "maintains safe and the integrity of all data in case of failure SSD or kidnapping, as well as unclean judgments resulting from power outages.  And that seems to be the case, at least in terms of pulling on a production car and its replacement by a new.

  • Y510P - How can I check the size of the SSD Cache?


    I just took delivery of a Y510P but don't see anywhere how I check the size of the SSD Cache.

    The laptop should have come with an 8 GB SSD Cache but how to check this?

    Thank you very much


    Brayjd, I, too have just received my Y510p, and after reading your post, became curious as well. After trying all the same things you did, without any good results, I went into the Device Manager and got the hard drive part number and google it. It turns out that mine is a hybrid SSD/HD with a SSD 8 GB cache built into the player. A hybrid has the SSD completely autonomous in the HD itself and requires no external software to run. That's why we have found no information on the size - for what is the rest of the computer is the SSD is invisible. Try Googling the part number of the hard drive. I hope this will answer the question for you, too.

  • 8 GB RAM with ssd and ram 12 GB without ssd cache cache

    We are looking to buy a laptop HP Envy 17 t j100 touchsmart for our son.  Which would be better:

    8 GB of RAM with SSD exceleration 24gig or 12 GB of ram without ssd cache memory?

    The cache of WSSD 24gig offers performance very similar to a full SSD drive for a much lower cost. I would buy the unit with the drive cache of the WSSD 24 concert and as little memory as they sell me and then increase the RAM me but 8 GB of RAM it's frankly more than many. In fact, it's probably better than 12 because there 2 identical modules allowing the functioning of memory dual channel. To summarize, the best option is clearly 8 GB RAm and the WSSD of 24 concert disk cache.

  • Intel(r) HD Graphics Family Driver does not not for Aspire S7-392 in Windows 10


    I have improved my Aspire S7 - 392 to Windows 10 a few weeks ago, and while most things seem to work properly, the driver for the graphics card Intel (R) HD Graphics Family had the yellow exclamation of 'something is wrong' next to him since. Now, I am unable to connect my laptop on the external monitor that I use for work (as nothing happens when I do), and graphics performance are visibly slowed (point of use) when playing games still fairly weak demand.

    Which would seem to indicate that there is a pretty big problem with drivers. I spent literally 10 hours on the phone with Microsoft Client service tries to understand the question, but all they could tell me after a fairly intensive survey was that they knew not what it was and wait for updates from Acer or Intel driver.

    I have the latest driver on the Acer support site installed (although it doesn't seem to be one specifically for Windows 10) and I rolled back and updated and tried several versions of the drivers from there, but all seem to have the same problem.

    I also downloaded Windows 10 Intel drivers that are supposed to be specially for my processor and graphics configuration, but when I try to install, it says that my computer does not meet the requirements (which is quite confusing when I have the exact material, so that the driver is designed).

    I searched these forums for support for other users of the S7 Aspire with similar problems and for people with features of Intel(r) HD Graphics Family have similar problems, but can't seem to find anything.

    My apologies if this has actually been discussed elsewhere, but no help at all with this issue would be appreciated. Windows 10 has been out for a while now, so I was hoping that a solution had been found to do this, since there must be a certain S7 users out there.

    Anyway, thanks in advance for any ideas/advice,.


    1. download the "Intel Driver Update" utility

    2. go manage the devices and uninstall/remove your Intel graphics driver

    3. run the Intel driver update utility.

    Your current graphics driver is a custom OEM Acer/Intel graphics driver.  This is why it will not let you install.  If the generic driver update utility that installs does not quite work right, then you go back to the driver that is located on the site of the Acers.

    If don't want to use the Intel utility driver update, then you will need to download the zip file of the driver instead of the driver .exe... and then use the disk method 'have' to install it. It is probably easier to use only the update of the Intel driver utility.

    I have a HP Envy 4 1054tx Ultrabook with 500 GB drive HARD + SSD of 32 GB. My HARD drive crashed and replaced it with a new one. Unfortunately, my restore disk does not work so I installed fresh new WIN7. I try to use the SSD caching capability of my laptop (which he did before, when I bought it).  Based on the forums I've read, the SSD cache implementation requires that the SATA controller must be set to RAID mode.  However, when I entered the BIOS, there is no option or the configuration that I can use to set SATA RAID my HARD disk mode.  In this regard, I can't meet one of the requirements of SSD caching.  Here are some of my BIOS Setup.  Can you help me please guys how to work on it? I am not convinced, on how my phone performs without SSD caching.

    Thanks in advance.


    Disk controllers hard HP consumer notebooks cannot be changed from their default values.

    More than likely if your model is equipped with a hybrid drive, the speed control is already defined with RAID.

    I recommend you to read this blog on how to get this Setup to work on a new install of W7.
