    I bought Fujitsu lifebook A544 notebook and replaced the HDD with Samsung 850Evo.

    The samsung magician software reports that the drive runs on sata 2 speeds but in speccy it says the max speed of the port is sata 3.

    What can be the problem?

    Drivers are up to date and bios version is latest.

    Check BIOS. Also make sure your Intel Chipset and SATA drivers are current.

    Also look in your bios to see if AHCI is enabled
