    System Misreporting HDD Performance?

    Hi all,I've been having this bizarre issue where task manager reports my HDD read and write speeds as around 15KB/s with average response times often going up to 3000ms. The HDD performance looks terrible on task manager, but it loads and runs games just fine. Normally this wouldn't be an issue for me but I think Steam has a feature where it measures drive performance and throttles download speeds based on reported write times. This makes it so that a few gigabytes will take tens of hours to download and install, whereas normally it would take minutes with my internet. This doesn't happen on o

    Hi Johan,

    It is possible that your
    HDD was unreadable
    causing the error message to appear. We recommend that you perform these troubleshooting steps and check if there are any changes:

    • Shutdown

    • Unhooked
      turn on

    • Reconnect

    If the issue persists, we suggest that you contact your
    laptop/computer's manufacturer
    for further assistance.

    Update us on how it goes.

    HDD Corrupt ?


    There are many possible reasons this issue is happening. We'd like to ask few questions below:

    • What is the brand name of you Hard Disk Drive?
    • How old is the HDD?
    Since you already tried multiple troubleshooting steps, we suggest visiting the manufacturer's website. Find and download a hard drive diagnostic software to help resolve the issue.

    Let us know how it goes.
