  1. 100% disk ar idle making the computer unresponsive. Please help


    Hi, I recently bought a Dell G3 and Have been getting horrible lag due to an almost constant 100% disk usage that's rendering the laptop almost unusable. I've looked it up and tried everything, EVERYTHING! I've stoping sysmain, cortana, Windows search, update, antivirus but nothing worked. Then I ran a full disk check thinking it was hardware related but nope, it came out clean. I then proceeded to fully format the disck and reinstall windows 10 twice and sent it back to dell but to no avail. I know I have a slow 5400 rpm drive but that is no excuse for constant lag and my other components are very good. I've also updated it to the latest release. Honestly I've ran out of things to try. I've watched and tried every tutorial or video out there but nothing works! Please, if anyone know of anything I can do to fix this i'll be eternally grateful.

    Clean install, disk usage at 100%

    Hello Tim,

    If the Task Manager shows the disk to be at 100% utilization despite a light or no workload, and the system may experience lag or become unresponsive this could be due to software complications or driver issue. To sort out performance issue, we suggest following
    the steps advised on this article.

    We look forward to your response.

    Regards.
