ummm.... apparently i tried activating TRIM with the fsutil command but the command prompt says there is no such function... btw i just installed a m4 crucial 128GB into my laptop in ahci mode without TRIm running... what should i do?
Regroup - May be a dumb question but, what operating system. Everyone, including myself, are taking for granted that this is a windows 7 installation. If NOT windows 7, then there is NO trim cmd.
If win 7 was installed properly, then Trim would be enabled automaticly in windows 7.
Will post back on how to verify.
Two things you can check in registry:
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters", and if "EnablePrefetcher" & "EnableSuperfetch" was 0 it meant TRIM be working.
Also look at Defrag, your SSD should NOT be listed.
Added - From cmd promp started with Admin Privilage - type "fsutil /?" That should show if you have the cmd. If windows 7 and you get an error mesage then a problem with windows installation.
