  1. Unexpected Crashes, BSOD, Boot Issues and 100% Disk Usage


    Hello everyone,My name is Thomas and I have had issues with my PC for about a week or two now. It started off with ethernet disconnects, which turned out to be a corrupted/incorrect driver Intel 82579V Gigabit Network Connection, and now I am facing more severe issues. There is one corrupt driver, Standard SATA AHCI Controller, which reports a failure, Code 10. I have been unsuccessful in fixing that and the most current chipset driver for my motherboard Asus P8Z77-V Pro made no difference. I play video games and edit photos, but heavy processes such as those seem to be the quickest, altho

    100% disk usage and memory usage

    Hi,

    100% disk usage and memory usage can be caused by a software corruption, running application running on the background and malware or virus infection.

    For us to properly isolate the issue and provide an appropriate resolution, kindly answer the questions below:

    • Did the issue happen after installing the Fall Creators?
    • Did you receive any error messages?
    • Can you send us the screenshot of the Task Manager showing the 100% disk usage and memory usage?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    For isolation purposes, please perform a clean boot to see if the same issue will occur. Refer to this
    article for more information on how to perform a clean boot
    in Windows.

    Looking forward to your response.

  4. Unexpected Crashes, BSOD, Boot Issues and 100% Disk Usage

    100% disk usage.

    Summer has ended and my girlfriend booted her school laptop for the first time in months, only for it to be so unbearably slow that it took several minutes to log in. She handed it to me and said "fix it"... that was 3 days ago and now I am here to humbly
    ask the community what is going on with this GD laptop.

    It boots and task manager reports 100%CPU usage, it then lags for several seconds and displays 100%disk usage with CPU usage bouncing between 30-60%.

    If you leave it alone with task manager running it will eventually quiet down to a reasonable 0-5% disk usage, but doing ANYTHING causes it to bounce right back to 100%.

    I have tried EVERYTHING.

    • disable superfetch.
    • disable microsoft search.
    • disable updates and suggestive tips.
    • updated to the most current version of microsoft. (it hadn't been updated since 2018 when she bought it.)
    • reconfigured AHCI PCIE.
    • changed energy options.
    • disabled indexing.
    • reset the virtual memory.
    • ran disk defragment and disabled all scheduling.
    • updated all drivers.
    • deleted google chrome.
    • Disabled all services that weren't microsoft services and disabled all startup programs (clean boot).
    Still no change in the disk usage.

    Its an HP Laptop model 15-bw0xx with Windows 10 home edition version 10.0.18362

    after messing with it this long im considering replacing the HDD with an SSD but I fear that it wont fix the issue.
