Brand new Y50 - 59421855 periodically freezes, HDD makes spinning noise

2014-10-12, 6:24 AM

Hi,

 

I just got a brand new Y50 with 16 gigs of ram and an 8 GB SSD. Every now and then, especially while browsing or using MS Word or pretty much any other application, I can hear the harddrive spin real fast and the computer freezes for about 2-3 seconds. Sometimes this happens every 5 minutes, sometimes it happens every hour. This happens even when I just have one application running. I can't even move the mouse, type, or do anything during this period.

 

When I open task manager, I see that "System" task is the one which brings the disk usage to 20-30% while this happens.

 

I've re-installed and formatted using OneKey recovery, still to no avail. Has anyone experienced the same? This seems to be a stock problem from Lenovo's end - since I've formatted from Onekey and still have this problem. I've installed no funny software or anything either. I've uninstalled McAfee products too.

You have to install WDBoot proogram to make that WD SSHD run fast. Check if it is installed or not.

WDBoost is not for SSHD in Lenovo. That doesn't recognize drive. To accelerate by SSD use Intel Rapid Technology Driver
