    ssd spikes at 100%


    My ssd keeps spiking at 100%. I have tried many methods and cannot find a solution. The method that works for most people here I cannot do as I seem to be missing the Standard SATA AHCI Controller:Also, through the use of Crystal Disk Info, I have found that the condition of my ssd is still good even though it has a slightly high idling temperature:As you can see I have a HDD drive that is being used 0% and has a low idling temperature:I have scanned my pc and I don't appear to have any viruses. I don't use chrome or Skype. My performance looks like this:Clean windows reboot doesn't seem

  2. Windows 10 Disc 100% spikes

    Hi Simonas,

    Sometimes your computer could run very slow even though you have only very few programs running. Since you're having issue with your 100% disk usage, it is always suggested that you keep your device drivers updated to eliminate the possibility of such problems.

    Let us walk you through some steps that may help us resolve your issue. Follow the steps below:

    Step 1: File Signature Verification Tool

    This tool help maintain the integrity of your Windows operating system by checking if there are any unsigned drivers in your operating system.

    • Press Windows key + R to open the run command.
    • Type sigverif.exe and press enter.
    • Check if you see a list of unsigned drivers.

    Step 2: Scan for hardware changes.

    • Press Windows key + R to open the run command.
    • Type devmgmt.msc and press enter.
    • Expand computer and highlight the extension.
    • There will be an icon to scan for hardware changes right below
      help.
    • Check the USB device to see whether it is working.

    Step 3: Hardware and Devices Troubleshooter.

    • Press the Windows + X, and click on Search.
    • Type troubleshooting and select Troubleshooting.
    • Click on Hardware and Sound and select Hardware and Devices and click on Next to run the troubleshooter.

    Hope the above information helps.

    Windows 10 Freezes; SSD's transfer rate goes to 100%

    Hi,

    I am experiencing the same exact problem.

    • Dell Latitude E5520
    • Windows 10 Version 1607 (OS Build 14393.953)
    • Seagate Momentus XT 500GB (Booting Drive, Disk 0, based on combination 4GB SSD and the rest is HDD).
      • The last few months it was freezing briefly (within a minute or so) and then unfreezes. All activities that do not need to access the drive can be done normally while frozen up to some point.
    • Crucial MX300 SSD 525GB Booting Drive (Disk 0), recently bought to replace the above 'aging' Seagate.
      • Freeze after a few operations and remains frozen until Power Recycled.
      • Disk Active Time spikes to 100% while Disk Transfer Rate is 0 or minimal.
      • All activities that do not need to access the drive can be done normally while frozen up to some point.
    • I have not tried replacing the Microsoft generic SATA driver yet.
    Hope the above helps pin-pointing the issues. I would greatly appreciate assistance in how to replace the SATA driver, if there is no cure from Microsoft yet.

    Thank you in advance!

    UPDATE:

    Applied KB4015438. Same issue:

    • Freeze after a few operations and remains frozen until Power Recycled.
    • Disk Active Time spikes to 100% while Disk Transfer Rate is 0 or minimal.
    • All activities that do not need to access the drive can be done normally while frozen up to some point.

    UPDATE (03/27/2017):

    Applied KB4016635. Issue persists:

    • Freeze after a few operations and remains frozen until Power Recycled.
    • Disk Active Time spikes to 100% while Disk Transfer Rate is 0 or minimal.
    • All activities that do not need to access the drive can be done normally while frozen up to some point.
    Replaced Microsoft Generic SATA Driver to OEM (Intel) Driver. System has been stable since 03/26/2017 15:10.
