Windows Central Question

Not sure what else to try so opening this up.

For months my PC has gone sluggish. I can't tell if it's hardware or what. When I open task manager, it will commonly say 100% Disk during these slow times.

The catch.... when organizing by "what is using the most" thigns are using 0.8MB/s commonly, sometimes up to 2MB/s

This is a SATA connection. Such a tiny bandwidth shouldn't be "100%"

So what's the cause? Mobo failure? HDD failure? other?

Hi Welcome to Windows Central. Your Disk should not show 100%. It might possibly spike but not stay at 100% You could try defraging your PC.

I faced a similar problem a couple of days before my motherboard died. So I would be wary and backup everything important, and then get it checked.
Yuk ! Let's hope that doesn't happen. That's really a bummer. I would back up my entire OS on a external drive. It's rare that a MB dies , but it's possibly. Do you know how to create a back up image of your OS? Time to learn!:wink: You will be fearless with a back up image!
PS Do you have away to check the MB?? I would be very interested!:wink:
Thanks for helping!

Unfortunately, no. This was more of a painful experience. The service centre charged me half the price of my laptop for a new motherboard :cry:
