100% disk usage on SD Card

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My laptop is very regularly painfully slow. This is to the point where I can click on something with hardly any apps open and it will take 10 secs to even recognise I have clicked on it, never mind do something. Upon checking task manager, the disk is regularly running at or about 100%. This appears to conincide with the SD Card reader - with no card in it - with the light on constantly like it’s trying to read. When the light goes out, the laptop runs fine.


I want to be able to in the short term disable this slot. In the longer term fix the issue.
