celebrity dating rumors - Updating sata drivers

Please note that the automatic Windows driver update DO NOT work - it does not update the driver as should.

updating sata drivers-79

This is why Hard Disk Sentinel displays 75% health (which means that the hard disk is good, but can't be sure that it's perfect) or 0% health (which means that the hard disk is about to fail). The problem is that even if we (both developers and thousands of users) asked them in the years, they seem advance in the wrong direction as newer drivers even offer LESS functions (they even removed the ability to detect any, even generic status of the secondary drives).

These values corresponds to the generic health displayed in AMD Raid Xpert tool for the appropriate hard disk, just Hard Disk Sentinel can also show the complete hard disk status for at least one member of each RAID arrays configured. We can just hope that one day AMD will change their mind and hear the requirements of users.

That's the maximum possible with AMD RAID Controller and it is not a bug / limitation of Hard Disk Sentinel, but a bug / limitation of the AMD RAID controller (even with the recommended "best" driver available for that). AMD: we want to monitor the complete status of ALL hard disks / SSDs configured as RAID arrays and you should release a new driver which allows this.

AMD AHCI Compatible RAID controller have limitations compared to hard disk controllers of different manufacturers.

By using this controller (and especially with an older driver for AMD AHCI Compatible RAID controller), only limited hard disk information reported.

However, this is not really related to Hard Disk Sentinel and completely independent from the hard disk model(s) used.The issue is caused by the current version of the driver installed for the AMD AHCI Compatible RAID controller - which blocks the detection.Generally, hard disk controller drivers affect how special commands (for example the status detection) are transferred to the hard disks / SSDs and some drivers may offer less functions than others and may completely block such special commands.Hard Disk Sentinel 4.60 and newer versions show the current disk controller and its current driver version (and release date) on the Information page.This can be used to quickly verify the driver and replace it from the Driver Zone page if required, for example if the status of hard disks can't be detected.To improve the situation, please try to download and install the better AMD chipset and RAID driver from the Driver Zone section or from the webpage of the manufacturer of your motherboard.
