Maintenance :: ASUS Vivotab Running Windows 8 - 100% Disk Usage At Specific Times Daily

Sep 25, 2013

I have an ASUS Vivotab running Windows 8. I am seeing that the service process hits 100% disk usage from roughly 4:58PM - 5:04PM daily. I've made sure that my antivirus is't downloading updates or running during that time, same with Windows Update, Live Update, etc. How can I find what specific process is running during that time that is killing the machine given I know when to watch for it?

Maintenance :: Disk Usage And CPU Reach 99% When Running Certain Programs

Jan 7, 2014

My Disk Usage and CPU columns of the task manager randomly jump up to 99% or even sometimes 100% which is unresponsive. This seems to happen more often when I run programs such as a malware scanner or League of Legends. My FPS in League stays around 1 when I do try to play and I'm assuming this is a related issue.

Maintenance :: Brand New ASUS X501a Laptop 100% Disk Usage?

Jun 18, 2013

I purchased an Asus x501a laptop with Windows 8 preinstalled at the beginning of the month. They sold me Nortons 360 which I installed. The laptop keeps freezing and if I look in the task manager the disk useage keeps reaching 100% every few seconds and lots of things aren't working properly; the internet connection keeps falling off, when using apps such as facebook it keeps freezing; internet pages are taking seconds to load instead of miliseconds. I can't believe this should be happening to a brand new laptop. Before I take it back I want to check whether it is actually a windows 8 problem (I suspect it is) as it uploaded 46 or more new updates to Windows 8 when I switched it on and these could potentially mean something else on the ASUS kit is outdated.

It is not a touch screen laptop (why would I buy one of those windows when I can successfully use my ipad and phone for this). The reason I bought a laptop is that I don't want touchscreen and just want an old fashioned computer to do use for work/other simple tasks. I will keep my ipad for social media use etc as the facebook app on windows 8 is designed for a touchscreen which I don't have! Maybe I should have bought something with Windows 7 on it??

Computer Disk Usage Is Constantly Running At 100%?

Feb 1, 2014

I'm running windows 8.0 and recently for some reason my computer's disk usage is constantly running at 100%. It will dip once every minute or so and load whatever I've clicked or typed and then freeze again.

I've looked extensively online and there is no exclusive cause or reason for this and seems to be a very tricky issue but I will explain what I have done so far:

Disabled Supefetch and Windows Search

Ran chkdsk f command numerous times

Disabled and deleted the page file (that was setting limits)

Tried defragging, disabling firewalls, etc.

Made exceptions for some files that may have been causing issues in automatic scans.

Been told numerous times to open Resource Monitor and check what's doing it and there are numerous things running at different times that this occurs, some are: NTFS Free Space Map, NTFS Master File Table, NTUSER.DAT files, random log files. There is no consistency.

Basic specs:

Windows 8.0 64-bit, 8GB Ram

Maintenance :: Windows 8 / 8.1 100% Disk Usage?

Apr 27, 2014

I encountered a problem a few weeks ago after I refreshed my laptop when it started refreshing the desktop constantly to the point where I couldn't do anything. After the refresh, the desktop was back to normal, though I noticed my disk usage in the task manager was constantly at 100%. I've been troubleshooting this problem by upgrading from Windows 8 to 8.1, I've run chkdsk.exe /f /r, I defragged the disk, ran a virus scan, etc. The only thing that is disabling the service 'superfetch' and/or 'Windows search', though the problem can still arise after doing so. Every now and then the disk usage goes back to it's regular 2-8% but then randomly shoots back up to 70-85-99-100%. It's causing some occasional slowdown.

Here's a screen cap of my resource monitor when it's at 100%:

And here are the specs of my laptop:
-Model: Acer Aspire V5-552
-CPU: AMD Quad-Core A10-5757M @2.5GHz
-RAM: 6GB DDR3 Memory
-HDD: 1000GB
-OS: Windows 8.1

Maintenance :: Getting 100% Disk Usage Spikes On Windows 8?

Dec 29, 2013

I did a fresh install of windows 8 twice and the problem still persists. I think I have tried every solution offered by google so far and I am at my wits end. It causes freezing in video games and I just want to play all these cool games I bought on steam, not to mention browse the internet without freezing.

Maintenance :: Windows 8 100% Disk Usage Causes Freeze?

Mar 15, 2014

Edit: laptop might also chrash while in airplane mode, however making an internet connection is still a surefire way to make it crash.

Seemingly out of nowhere my laptop has been freezing usually minutes after I started it up. I can then restart my laptop and it works for another few minutes and freezes again. While looking at task manager I noticed the disk going up to 100%, however the individual processes did not account for this 100% use.

I tried to increase/decrease my virtual memory but this did not seem to have any effect.

When My computer makes an internet connection for something, a browser or a game, it will skyrocket the disk usage to 100% and freeze. I can start my laptop with all processes and services enabled and when I put it on airport mode nothing will be wrong. however once I enable internet and surf around for about 1 minute my computer will freeze. this happened for multiple browsers and also for multiple games. Also I am currently typing this from my brothers laptop with the same internet connection.

Maintenance :: Windows 8.1 Freeze Up (Disk Usage 100% - 0 R/W Speeds)

Apr 11, 2014

I've been having some major problems with Windows 8.1 (and 8.1 Update) which never occurred to me in Windows 8.

What essentially happens is that the computer completely freezes up and I know that the disk usage goes to 100% as does the active time but the read speed/write speed and average response time are all 0. During this period, i cannot do anything with the machine, not even take a screenshot (And hence to poor quality of the attached picture which shows the scenario).

I've encountered this problem in all of the situations: Upgrade from Windows 8 to 8.1 via StoreUpgrade from Windows 8 to 8.1 via flash driveClean install of Windows 8.1 on to a formatted partition

I've never had this problem with Windows 7 nor with Windows 8 and I've gone through the process of trying to upgrade to Windows 8.1 more than 8 times (literally) on my laptop. I've updated the drivers from the vendor site.

I also encountered this same problem on my desktop once when I performed a clean install on it but I need a stable configuration on my desktop for now for work.

The following are the steps that I've seen online as solutions to this problem and have tried all of them to no avail:

Disable superfetch and windows search servicesDisable Link State Power Management for PCI expressDisable live tilesDisable page files

The configurations for the laptop are as follows:

HP Pavilion dv6-7040tx
3rd generation Intel Core i7 3610QM8 GB of RAM750 GB SATA harddisk (Currently has three partitions plus the small partition created by windows. This problem existed even when I had a single partition. The reason I re-partitioned was ease of formatting and re-installing the OS alone without clearing my data)NVIDIA GEFORCE GT 630M 2GB graphics card.

I do have all the latest drivers from the HP website and the latest updates from windows update. Also, if I check the resource monitor, at these times, the actual disk usage is indeed at very low rates for the different processes. I've attached a snapshot of that as well (had to use a camera then too). Notice the long gap during with the disk active (blue line) is 100% but the speeds (green area) are 0.

Maintenance :: Windows 8 Pro X64 - System Process 100% Disk Usage

Mar 22, 2013

I have a laptop running Windows 8 Pro x64, and lately I'm facing an issue where the System process (PID = 4) has spikes of 100% of disk usage according to task manager. I can't watch a video or play a song on a media player properly, for example (there's a crackling noise and the playback is slow), because this process (System) keeps using 99-100% of my hard drive.

Even if I have just booted up and running only the essential OS process and services and completely idle, task manager keeps reporting several spikes of 100% of disk usage. Tried uninstalling antivirus (avast free), but that didn't work. I really have no clue what do to prevent this process from writing/reading so much into HD and reaching 100% of disk usage.

OS: Windows 8 Pro x64
CPU: core i3-2350M @ 2.3 GHz
RAM: 4 GB DDR3 @ 1333 MHz
HD: Samsung Spinpoint ST500LM012 HN-M500MBB 5400 RPM

Maintenance :: Very High Disk Usage (Windows 8 Pro 64bit)

Jul 4, 2013

Over the past couple of weeks I have been getting high disk usage on my computer, causing it to run extremely slowly.

Just after I took the attached screenshot, my System went down to around 6MB/s and the "Service Host: Local System (Network Restricted)" jumped to around 16MB/s Looking in resource monitor the main things causing the high read speed are:

'rundll32.exe' and 'ccsvchst.exe' and one just called 'System'

Maintenance :: Windows 8.1 - High Disk Usage (98 / 99%) ONLY On Startup

Oct 30, 2013

I recently installed Windows 8.1 on my Inspiron 7520 and I noticed that during the startup the disk usage is around 98/99% of my Samsung SSD 840 Pro 120gb.

I saw a lot of posts where the users complain that, during this high usage of the disk, apps don't open, the system freezes around 5 minutes and after that, there are random high usages, even on idle. But in my case this high usage lasts only few seconds (around 30s), I can open some apps with no problems and never happens again on idle, only if I restart Explorer.exe. If I restart it, it happens all again.

My question is : Is it normal? The high usage only on startup? My only worry is mess up with my SSD due this usage.

On Performance Monitor, the process which writes a lot is System. I disabled every 3rd party app on startup.

Maintenance :: Fresh Install Of Windows 8 64 Bit - 100% Disk Usage

Nov 16, 2012

A week ago I did a completely fresh install of Windows 8 64 bit and everything was working great. When I booted up my laptop on Wednesday I noticed it was running terribly slow. When I opened task manager I saw that disk usage was at 100% despite the combined total of data transfer being 0.8MB/s.

The problem occurs constantly if I set my laptop power mode to balanced but only occurs intermittently at high performance. I've run a chkdsk and everything is showing up fine and bizarrely there is no slowdown whatsoever on safe mode.

Maintenance :: Windows 8 - Computer Suddenly Became Slow - 100% Disk Usage?

Apr 13, 2013

My Task Manager:

HP Pavilion with Intel Core i3 running on Windows 8 and NVIDIA GEFORE GT 630M 1GB

My relatively new (about 2 months old) laptop running on Windows 8 suddenly became slow. I noticed it starting yesterday when it became really laggy. Just a few days ago it was working just fine.

I tried to look for solutions online and was worried that it might be caused by malware. I did a quick scan with Malwarebytes and it found no infections.When I boot in safe mode, it seems pretty fine. I tried doing a system restore but I was also informed that it wasn't completely done probably because of an antivirus.

My antivirus is Norton Internet Security and I've read that Norton can be such a hog so I've tried disabling it though not entirely and it hasn't been uninstalled yet. I've also tried running a chkdsk /r because going to Tools > Check for Errors on my C: drive said that there were errors that needed repair.

It has become less laggy but apparently not totally (not to previous state). My task manager however still shows 100% disk usage. Previously Norton would be listed among the top but now it's usually "System" and I don't quite understand why.

Maintenance :: 100% Disk Usage Randomly?

Oct 10, 2013

Randomly my disk usage will rocket up to 100% and sit there locking up my computer and freezing things that i am doing. problems started right out of the box when i got my laptop. CCleaner seemed to lower the amount of times it happens, but it still occurs. I've ran virus/malware scans there is nothing. so its ether windows doing stuff on its own randomly then consuming my whole disk or its having compatibility issues with some program that i have running. this is interfering with gaming and school work. I will include pics of multiple instances of it locking up. I can also include a list of the programs I have on here.

i have an
Acer Aspire V3 772G 9653

Maintenance :: 100% Disk Usage For No Reason?

Feb 22, 2014

After putting my computer to hibernate and powering it back on, my disk usage would stay at 100%. All the transfer speeds are around 0.1 mb/s and I'm not sure what could be causing the 100% disk usage.

Another thing is that it windows notifies me to scan my hard drive for errors, which I have done, but this keeps repeatedly happening.

Maintenance :: High Disk And CPU Usage After Upgrade

Aug 28, 2014

Today I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8.1. For some reason, after upgrading, my hard disk usage is always hovering at around 60% usage and my CPU usage is always hovering at around 50%. This is when the PC is idle. When I was using 7, the disk would rarely jump over 30% usage and the CPU would never go above 7% when idle. The sound of the hard disk constantly working away is doing my head in, not to mention it's at around 50 degrees as opposed to 45 degrees previously.

Maintenance :: 100% Disk Usage During File Transfer

Mar 29, 2014

I found a lot of 100% disk usage problems and their solutions, but none of them could fix mine.

So here is my issue : every time I copy files from one disk to another or even within the same disk among partitions and install a program/game, my computer becomes extremely slow. A single click is responded after 3-4 seconds. When I open control panel, it shows 100% disk usage. As soon as the file transfer gets over, everything becomes normal.

My problem is not my transfer speed. It is that while a transfer is happening, nothing else works. Even though the transfer rate is 6 -7 mbps

Maintenance :: New Laptop / Constant 100% Disk Usage And 50% CPU?

Sep 15, 2014

The new Windows 8 touch laptop I just got is running ridiculously slow. Apps take minutes to open sometimes because the disk is constantly being used by several processes, even when idle.

The main culprits showing in Task Manager are "Service host: Local system", "Windows Modules Installer Worker", and "Antimalware Service Executable". Between them they are using 97+% of the disk and about 50% CPU constantly. It's gotten a bit better since I uninstalled all the trialware garbage that came on it, including McAfee, which was a massive slowdown. I plan on just using Windows Defender for security but it still says it's turned off, could that be the problem?

But for real, I'm pretty sure McAfee slows down the system more than the viruses.

Maintenance :: Disk Usage Stuck At 100% - Laptop Freezes?

Aug 16, 2014

I have a HP Pavillion Sleekbook 15-b002ee with Third generation core i5 processor 1.7 GHz, 500 GB Hard disk and 4 GB of RAM installed. Windows 8 came pre installed on it.

I bought this laptop 11 months ago and it worked fine for 10 months and then from the last month its presenting unusual problems. My disk usage is stuck at 100% and the laptop freezes and never lets me work or do anything. Heres what i have already done to solve the issue but have been unsuccessful:

1) I have reset my PC completely and reinstalled windows 8 using the factory setup. Didnt solve the issue, newly installed windows displays the disk usage 100% and the performance is same i.e the system freezes.

2) I have tried adjusting my paging file, no change made a difference to the performance of my laptop. The default system managed Paging file size is something around 3.89 Gb. Does my problem have anything to do with my paging file?

3) disabling the "Windows Search" and "Superfetch" services and still it didnt solve the problem.

4) I have also run checkdisk on my hard drive completely. It took me a complete day to do so but still no change.

5) Before resetting my laptop, an error called "Kernel_data_inpage(http.sys)" used to come on my upgraded windows 8.1. Whats the issue?

So what should i do? Is there any problem with my hardware? Is my hard drive having bad sectors and is that causing the problem?

Maintenance :: Unexplained 100% Disk Usage At Bootup After 8.1 Update

Nov 17, 2013

I just updated to 8.1 two days ago. I agreed to the update when my computer boot up, without issue, and was forced to reboot immediately (which, by the way, is idiotic. I wanted to do the install at night when I went to bed not lose my only computer for 1.5 hours that were suppose to be spent on volunteer activities because it won't let me delay the install!)

When my computer next booted up it was SLOW. I opened up task manager and it showed me at 100% disk IO, even though non of the programs running used enough disk IO individually to be anywhere close to the 100% mark. Even after all of my programs *finally* finished booting up the disk IO still showed at 100%, but every program on my task manage showed less then 0.3 MB/s and most were at 0.1. Eventually the diso IO goes back to a reasonable level, but I had enough time to search all over google and fail to find any answers before my IO went to 0 so it was hardly immediately. This is substantially slowing my bootup process.

I have checked all the bootup programs and they all look right. a *quick* scan of msconfig bootup (I already use a selective bootup from msconfig) looked right as well. I ran a malware scan and nothing came up. However, I didn't expect any of those to be the problem anyways. My computer was fin when it booted up without 8.1 I used it for 20 minutes visiting the same website I always do, then I was forced to do an install and everything was broken. This clearly sounds like it was caused by the 8.1 upgrade.

I will update with screen captures of task manager when I next reboot; My disk IO stayed at 100% so long I figured I could take the captures when I needed them, then it finally went to 0% the one time I actually wanted it to stay at 100% ...

Tablets :: Asus VivoTab Doesn't Shut Down

Aug 21, 2013

I have an ASUS VivoTab that kept draining the battery. I noticed that after shutting down, I would open up the case or transleeve and discover it was on.

After determining that I hadn't accidentally left it on, I watched it after shutting down one evening and indeed about 2 minutes later, it turned itself back on.

I shut it down using the shutdown from the initial screen. That is, I did not use the Charms bar, select Settings and shut down. This appears to work.

Is this a wonky tablet? Related to Windows 8?
