Lenovo Y500 SSD not working

2014-04-09, 7:55 AM

Hi guys,


I have a problem with my Lenovo Y500 16gb ram & SLI GT650M. I don't think the SSD cache is working. It isn't showing up under my devices in 'Device manager' neither shows it up under my disks as you can see:



 I really want to use it for the caching, like the product was advertised. What do I do?

Refer to this link. Look at the posting of Neokenchi. He/She provided the test to determine if you have the cache or not. The other posts also provided info of the hybrid type of hdd installed in some models. Yours might be one.
