    I'm running Windows 10 and my laptop performance has been really good up until about a week ago when the laptop got much slower while opening apps or even webpages and I noticed Disk Usage was 100% in Task Manager where "System", "Service Host: Local System (2)" and at times, "Windows Update" seemed to be the major culprits. I disabled Windows Search and SuperFetch, reset Virtual Memory, changed Power Settings to High-Performance, deleted files in the Temp folder, but nothing worked.


    Today, I unplugged the charger and the performance improved with Disk Usage going down a bit to 60-80% (making the laptop usable at least). I tested this multiple times and each time I plugged the charger back in, the Disk Usage would shoot up to 100% in a couple of seconds.


    I was hoping someone would have a fix to get the disk usage back down to like 10%, plugged in or not.

    :)

  2. 100% Disk Usage

    Windows randomly goes to 100% disk usage like when i am charging my laptop or when I start my PC! (the latter one is more annoying)

    Any solution will be appreciated. (Although I have tried most of 'em!)

    My Computer is Plugged in but not Charging

    My laptop computer is plugged in but not charging. The power supply will maintain the charge level (%), but not add to it. Removing and reinserting the battery allows the power supply to add to the % charge to 100%.

    Steps performed:

    • Turning the computer off and restarting it returns the computer to the Plugged in, Not Charging state.
    • Removing the battery again allows one complete charge, after which the laptop would no longer charge again.
    • I have used more than one power supply with the same condition.

    To resolve the issue, I remove the battery, obtain a complete charge, and maintain this charge by always keeping the power supply plugged in.

    What is the root of the problem?
