Default Behavior

LSI_SAS is a kernel device driver. In Windows 10 it is starting only if the user, an application or another service starts it. If LSI_SAS fails to start, the failure details are being recorded into Event Log. Then Windows 10 will start up and notify the user that the LSI_SAS service has failed to start due to the error.

Restore Default Startup Configuration for LSI_SAS

1. Run the Command Prompt as an administrator.

2. Copy the command below, paste it into the command window and press ENTER:

sc config LSI_SAS start= demand

3. Close the command window and restart the computer.

The LSI_SAS service is using the lsi_sas.sys file that is located in the %WinDir%\System32\drivers folder. If the file is changed, damaged or deleted, you can restore its original version from Windows 10 installation media.
