    Critical_Process_Died for Windows 10/Disk at 100% on start up


    Hi,

    I upgraded my computer to Windows 10 from 8.1. After around a week of using Windows 10, each time I turned on my computer, I get a blue screen saying that the computer will restart. Like in the following picture.

    Once it restarts, I can a log in and everything is fine. Except for one thing. When I open task manager, it says that my disk is filled at 100%, and the main program that is causing this is called "system".

    I tried to increase the virtual memory, as seen in the next picture (I have 8GB of RAM by the way)

    But that still does not seem to work. I downloaded seatools and it says that it is not a disk failure.
    Is there a possible correlation between the Critical_Process_Died startup page and the 100% disk usage?




    :)

  2. Disk usage at 100% on start up

    Hello,

    So I have a reasonably nice gaming setup, with specs listed here:

    AMD FX-6300 six-core processor 3.5 GHz

    AMD Radeon r7 370 4Gb GDDR5graphics card

    Windows 10 Home (version 1709)

    8Gb ram

    1Tb hard drive

    NO SSD

    The whole system is 2-3 years old and the problem that I have been facing lately is my disk usage spikes randomly. I used to be able to run PUBG on steam without much problem until mid October when my game would crash every time I try to load into a game.
    I'm also having issues with my GPU being between 85-100% when in game, but I don't think that's unnatural for a game like PUBG that's so poorly optimized. Occasionally I can get into a game where my player will already be on the ground, but everything is lagging.
    It takes 6 minutes of just sitting there before I can actually start doing stuff in the map with some control. It will continue to lag (like 6-15 FPS type of lag) for the rest of the game. And when I'm not playing games, my disk may fluctuate between 0-100%
    with all the usage being through random services, Sysytem (ntoskml or NT Kernel and System), or any other random program. I've tried so many different things between full scan of my hard drive (took a whole night), de-fragmenting my hard drive (which was already
    0% fragmented), checked the game files, uninstall/ reinstall of both just the game and all of steam, tinkered in my registry using regedit, fixing that weird skype/internet bug, updates all drivers, checked my hardware to make sure everything was seated properly
    and connected, purchases TotalAV premium to check for viruses and trojans (nothing was found), used CCleaner, I've disabled different processes and applications like windows defender, Superfetch, and other "services," and I've changed different settings around,
    including power settings from balanced to performance. Nothing has worked, yet. I feel like the only thing I haven't tried is to put in a new graphics card and see if my GPU is on it's way out. I have managed to stop the random disk fluctuating outside of
    gaming, but still have GPU maxing out and disk maxing out in game, constantly. I can't even play CS:GO without problems.

    I'm not really planning on throwing out the money to get a new GPU at the moment, so any recommendations would be appreciated. Any other questions for me, just reply.

    How long does the blue screen stay on?

    If you mean how long it takes until your system restarts, it should restart automatically once the information is gathered (this is default)
