Cannot use Intel Rapid Storage Technology to Accelerate after replacing SATA hard drive.
I am reposting from Laptop forum since here might be more suitable for my question.
I just replaced the SATA hard drive of my Inspiron 14Z (5423) with Dell recommended replacement part (Manufacturer Part# JT37D) but have noticed that the computer is much slower than before which is very surprising since it is pretty much empty with the exception of Microsoft Offices.
Then I've found that the accelerated device is "inaccessible" from the Intel Rapid Storage Technology application. As shown in the pics.
My question is: Is this because the hard drive was installed incorrectly, or because the problem is with the hard drive itself as it is not the same model as what originally installed in the laptop?
If it was because incorrect installation, what do I need to do to correct it?
