  1. Disk usage spikes to 100% and then crashes in csgo


    Specs: 8700k delidded but no overclock

    Stock 1080 ti areo

    32gb gskill ddr4

    Gigabyte Z370 auros gaming 5

    1tb Samsung 860 evo NVME ssd

    EKWB fluid gaming full custom loop cpu+gpu

    Windows 10


    What's happening: I've been using my pc for a while and it is normally very stable aside from when overclocking but yesterday night I was playing some csgo and the game randomly crashed. I tried the good old turn it off and then back on again, but that didn't work. I would launch csgo, start a match with boys, and then play for anywhere from 1 second to a minute before the game freezes, and then a crash. Task manager showed the disk usage would spike to 100% right before the crash, but what's odd is that the speeds of the drive a Samsung 860 evo NVME ssd would drop to nearly 0mb/s as the usage spike to 100%. While launching csgo I would hit 100-200mb/s with only 20-30% usage. CPU, GPU, and RAM temperatures and usage remains low, with the cpu around 50c or below and the gpu close to that. Nothing but the ssd gets close to 100% usage in task manager


    What I've tried: First I tried wiping + reinstalling windows 10, then I tried a bunch of drive repair stuff like samsung's drive wizard, then I tried a new ssd the same 1tb Samsung, but one I know works and then I tried moving the SSD to a new nvme slot on my motherboard. So far nothing has worked, but after I swapped the nvme slot I was able to play csgo for about 2 minutes before a crash. After the first try with the ssd in the new slot it went back to crashing in seconds.


    here is a video of what task manager looks like when it's crashing: https://imgur.com/a/I3F0eb2

    Any help would be amazing, I really want to get back to being able to play games. Thanks

    :)

    100% Disk usage spike on Windows 10

    Recently I have experienced that when running most applications (especially gaming) my Laptop would have a disk usage spike to 99% or 100%. when I check the task manager there is no specific program using the disk, its just at 100% usually forcing me to
    do a hard restart. baring in mind that when I run the programs the usually run smoothly and very randomly the disk usage spikes. this has only been happening since downloading windows 10. I have read many threads and applied many fixes such as disabling SuperFetch,
    BIT service and windows update. I have also disable cloud based protection which seemed to work for some people but not for me, any other suggestions?

    Disk usage spikes to 100 % when using browser.

    I work as an IT service tech and I have ran into this problem as well. I have a HP Pro Book 440 G3. The laptop has a core i5 processor and 8 GB of RAM. I did all the suggested fixes from various forums such as these:

    Windows 10 100% disk usage in Task Manager [SOLVED] - Driver Easy

    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-3610820/disk-usage-100-windows-version-1709.html

    I did not have any luck fixing the problem. Just opening Edge or Google Chrome makes the disk usage spike up to 100% and it will stay there for a period of time. The 100% usage happens all the time after I login and then will die down for a while until I
    launch an application. There are sometimes when opening an application will make the disk usage spike above 75% which seems odd because its only one application running. No rhyme or reason as to why this happens. Task manager or Resource Monitor does not show
    any solid information as to why this keeps happening. Looking at other laptops with the same configuration the disk usage should not spike above or near 50%.

    I also got a new hard drive and only did a fresh install of Windows 10 with all the latest updates. Still got the same behavior. This is certainly a Windows 10 issue as it has been documented though many forums using different manufactures of laptops (Dell,
    HP, Asus, etc..)

    Its a shame I have a relatively new laptop that I cannot deploy to users since I am cautious about the performance and having to troubleshoot this for an end user. I hope there will be more attention to this because it has been happening to people for years
    now.
