Dear Adham

 

Welcome in Lenovo Forums

 

There is an application called ( Intel Rapid Start Technology ) should be installed n your machine to be able to see the SSD details

 

Please use the below link to install the application

 

 Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit) : http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS032706

Windows 8 (32-bit, 64-bit) : http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS032570

 

Thanks

Alaa

if you have the SSD version its actually not a storage. Its used as a cache only.

Same here. I tried installing Intel Rapid Start Technology. It did not install and said that my computer does not have the minimum requirements to install the software. What does it mean? Do I have a ssd on my Lenovo Y 500?
