Readyboost and mobility center problem on windows 8

Dear Gman,

You said earlier :- " Format the SanDisk to exFAT as previously advised. Take the SanDisk out of machine. Run the tool as Admin. Reboot for good measure. Put SanDisk in machine. See if ReadyBoost works. If not, try again not to format to exFAT. "

I understand all the above except not clear about " Run the tool as Admin " . How do i do this step please ? - jim

Type msinfo32 in the Start menu then press Enter. File | Save on the opened screen. In Windows Explorer, right click the saved file and choose Send To>>>Compressed (Zip) Folder.

Attach the zip here. I'll show you which drivers you need to install still, then we will see from there.

You don't have the proprietary Intel Rapid Storage driver installed:

Code:
Name    Standard SATA AHCI Controller
Manufacturer    Standard SATA AHCI Controller
Status    OK
PNP Device ID    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27C1&SUBSYS_22061B35&REV_02\3&11583659&0&FA
I/O Port    0x0000D800-0x0000D807
I/O Port    0x0000E080-0x0000E083
I/O Port    0x0000E000-0x0000E007
I/O Port    0x0000DC00-0x0000DC03
I/O Port    0x0000D880-0x0000D89F
Memory Address    0xFE977800-0xFE977BFF

Driver    c:\windows\system32\drivers\storahci.sys (6.2.8250.0, 60.30 KB (61,752 bytes), 18-Feb-12 1:25 PM)

So you can download that manually from here and install using the Device Manager, if necessary:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...wnldID=20624&keyword="rapid+storage"&lang=eng

You should also install latest Intel .inf chipset update: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=20775&keyword=chipset&lang=eng

If that is the literal meaning of the message that you see: That your computer is fast enough (or similar) - then I suppose that is the Microsoft developers' way to tell you that Readyboost is of little to no use on the system.

You already have the SSD so when your system has to read from the virtual memory file (pagefile.sys), it is already on a speedy subsystem. The reason for Readyboost is to lessen the impact of it being on slower HDDs.

It's not a good idea to defragment SSD drives often. If done at all, it should be extremely rare and with special defragment software that knows it's a SSD, such as Auslogics.

Best to Google about SSD and how to care for it.

Yes i read it too , i will follow your advise to use auslogics freeware then . I saw in google about Ssd and Windows 7 :-

SSD and Windows 7

There is some infos regarding Ssd , Disk defragmentation , superfetch and prefetch and a bit on readyboost , and it started a few years back . I understand some but not all they have commented inside there . thanks and regards - jim

Hi jimmunsw,
You don't need readyboost if you have a ssd, readyboost is for slower spinners.
