Lenovo Y700 15ISK 80NV disk usage 100 and too slow even after fresh windows install

2019-09-24, 8:59 AM

Hey everyone.

 

I have a Lenovo Ideapad Y700-15ISK 80NV. It specs are: Core i7 (6th gen), 1 TB HDD (wdc wd10spcx-24hwst1), 8GB DDR4 RAM, NVIDIA Geforce 960M, Windows 10 Home (64-bit). The laptop was working very slow and the disk usage was 100% at all times. I tried disabling Superfetch, windows search, and whatever you can find on the first page of google to make your pc faster but it all failed. I even did a fresh installation of Windows 10 and formatted the HDD but the issue still remained there. Checked the health of the drive through different softwares but it all is good and healthy. I bought it in 2016 March and am the sole user of the device. The device is OK for the simplest of operations but when I use a larger software (I'm an engineer so I use Solidworks and ANSYS on it), it dies off. Disk usage is almost always 100% and I have tried literally everything other than opening the laptop case. The laptop should work well with these softwares as well but it isn't the case at all. Upon the use of those demanding softwares, the RAM usage jumps to 90%+ with the program only occupying 2.5GB in the task manager. I'm unable to do simple tasks on those softwares which are working fine on PCs with lower specs than this. Someone please help me with this, I'll owe everything to you :)

 

Thanks.

Windows might update or run several background tasks. I would leave it running until it stopped doing that. Disabling Superfetch and the like most likely even decreases speed, so the idea is not that great. Eventually, it will be done doing whatever it is doing and you should be able to work normally.

My pc is completely up to date with all drivers up to date as well. This isn't the issue. Tried the thing about superfetch but it doesn't work.

Sometimes Windows just does that. Did you just leave it running for an extended period of time? Because I also had that with my one laptop and it stopped after more than half an hour.

This is not something that happens just once. This has been the state of my pc for about a month now, all the time.

Oh, I'm sorry. In that case I also have no idea anymore. I know one PC that is just the same way, constantly working on the HDD. It just occasionally stops randomly and kicks back on at the new start..
