  1. 100% ssd Disk usage

    Whenever I put the ssd under load such as downloading a game, it drastically slows down and shows the image below in task manager. When the game is just starting to download, task manager shows upwards of 200MB/s at around 60% disk usage, before dropping. It may also be noted that I have inconsistent DNS/connectivity issues with my ethernet, but that is a separate problem. I have had this PC for almost 2 years now, and installed the copy of windows myself.

    I have tried many different fixes, but any help would be appreciated.

  2. 100% disk usage.

    Summer has ended and my girlfriend booted her school laptop for the first time in months, only for it to be so unbearably slow that it took several minutes to log in. She handed it to me and said "fix it"... that was 3 days ago and now I am here to humbly
    ask the community what is going on with this GD laptop.

    It boots and task manager reports 100%CPU usage, it then lags for several seconds and displays 100%disk usage with CPU usage bouncing between 30-60%.

    If you leave it alone with task manager running it will eventually quiet down to a reasonable 0-5% disk usage, but doing ANYTHING causes it to bounce right back to 100%.

    I have tried EVERYTHING.

    • disable superfetch.
    • disable microsoft search.
    • disable updates and suggestive tips.
    • updated to the most current version of microsoft. (it hadn't been updated since 2018 when she bought it.)
    • reconfigured AHCI PCIE.
    • changed energy options.
    • disabled indexing.
    • reset the virtual memory.
    • ran disk defragment and disabled all scheduling.
    • updated all drivers.
    • deleted google chrome.
    • Disabled all services that weren't microsoft services and disabled all startup programs (clean boot).
    Still no change in the disk usage.

    Its an HP Laptop model 15-bw0xx with Windows 10 home edition version 10.0.18362

    after messing with it this long im considering replacing the HDD with an SSD but I fear that it wont fix the issue.

  3. 100% disk usage

    The most common cause of 100% disk usage appears to be Superfetch and Prefetch, but there are also other causes. You can try disabling both these features and see if it helps.

    This article provides steps to disable prefecth and superfetch:

    100% disk usage and memory usage


    100% disk usage and memory usage can be caused by a software corruption, running application running on the background and malware or virus infection.
