Hello. I'm running Win 7 Pro 64 bit on a Dell XPC 8100 Core 15 with 6 Gb of RAM. And RAID which is the problem.

 

Until recently RAID always worked fine. However after running a scan with Slim Drivers which recommended a new driver I installed that driver and ever since I've had the notification that "Intel RST service is not running".

 

Could some kind person talk me through the process of removing this driver and installing a proper one?

 

Just wanted to add though not pertinent here that I've also had problems with services not starting recently, including Windows Update, and I found your Windows Repair (All in One) from Tweaking.com to be a wonderful resource.

 

Thanks

The new drivers needs that service to run. Go to run and type services.msc and press enter. Look for the Intel Rapid Storage Technology (IRST) Set it to run automatically and start the service.

Oh dear. I tried that but the service seems to be missing - not just disabled but altogether missing!

Very strange.

Any way I could get it back and running that you know???

 

The array itself seems to be fine. I have just run My Dell PC checkup and it says that RAID (and everything else) is fine.

Try doing a System Restore.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

If that drivers program has a backup/restore feature you could try that. Or as DC3 suggested try doing a restore point roll back. Go to start and type rstrui.exe and choose a restore point prior to your problem.
