I have a Lenovo G770 and i wanted to upgrade the HDD to a SSD. I have an OCZ Vertex 3 left from my PC so I installed it in my G770.
When I reinstall Win10 now, Ive the disk 100 percent usage problem and I cant solve it.
Im an IT Technician and Ive tried so much, I spent hours with it and now Im asking myself, if the SSD is incompatible? Is there something like a qualified vendor list for SSDs?
Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the Community Forums.
Getting 100 percent disk usage could be because of a lot of factors. One is Windows Search. Try to temporarily disable it and find out if it’s the cause of your 100% disk utilization problem.
To do that, press Windows logo + X at the same time then select Command Prompt or PowerShell with admin access. Type net.exe stop "Windows search" then hit Enter

Unfortunately I've tried so much:
Disable Windows Search
Update all drivers
SSD check with the result: ssd is healthy
Reset virtual memory
Change the Skype and Google Chrome settings / I just deinstalled both
Fix the StorAHCI.sys driver
I reinstalled win10 with a DVD and a USB stick
In the end I had the problem, that the disk usage was just at 100 percent, if I installed something, so when the disk had to write.
I installed win10 on the old Hdd und there was no problem (except that it was slow cause of the 5400rpm hdd).

Hi! Check if you can update the firmware of your SSD. If the issue persists or there's no firmware update available, run the Secure Erase application of the SSD then clean install the OS.

There was an Firmware update But unfortunately it didnt solve the problem. So I secure erased the SSD with the OCZ Tool and reinstalled Win10. But the problem still exists.
I found another solution, to change the driver file depending on the hardware ID...didnt work.
Another way: to change the power options to "high performance"....didnt work.
Im becoming desperate...

Yeah of course. Screenshot 1: after I installed the nextcloud-Client I synced my data with the nextcloud-Server and randomly while syncing that happened.
Screenshot 2: While the Office Setup the disk randomly had some 100 percent peaks.

Thanks for sending those photos. We'd like to see what software/applications that consumes the most of the storage. Could you try to sort the usage from the highest to the lowest? Thank you! We'll wait for your reply.

I've monitored the disk usage a little bit and while it has the 100 percent usage, all the processes in the task manager slowly go down to 0 MB/s. Like there is no process using the disk...the disk just hangs for (on average) half a minute, then suddenly the average response time shows a very high millisecond-number and then the disk works again until it hangs the next time.
And I can say, that this time between two hang ups gets shorter everytime. For example while installing Visual Studio the disk worked for about 1 minute and hung about 20 seconds. Then it worked for about 40 seconds and hung about 20 seconds again. Worked for about 20 secs and so on. In the end the disk worked for 1 second and hung for 20 seconds.

Another help here. As we were checking here, this could be a software related problem between the Windows 10 OS and the laptop. Based on the Lenovo devices tested for Windows 10 version 1809 https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht507291?CID=ww:lenovosocial:20x9m6 the Lenovo G770 is not included in the list that will work with the Windows 10 OS environment. There is a possibility that the you will encounter this kind of problem as the laptop is not yet been tested with the Windows 10 OS even if you have a new SSD installed. We recommend installing the original Windows OS that comes with the laptop and check if the problem will re-occur.
