Re: brand new PC CPU reaches 80 to 96/100%

I have been having the same issue, I had not heard any grinding from my HDD. I have bought two laptops and I created a rather very detailed post here:


100% Disk Usage


Nothing worked for me, however it did make matters worse off.  A lot of reviews I have seen with people having the same issue none have been corrected. It might be the drive or Windows 10, I even asked if there were known defects with the Toshiba drives (these are the ones in both of my new HP laptops that I bought)


Luckily I am not dependant on these machines, I will wait for another solution. If you correct yours let me know how you did so.

In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.
