Hard Drive Pulsing ON/OFF Once Every Two Seconds RRS feed

  • Question

  • My hard drive is 70% empty and I have 3GB of memory. I am really upset because this seems to cause keyboard lag or it shuts down completely fro a up to 20 seconds, then resumes but misses catching up with input, leaving out letters completely. What is the issue? I can't figure it out

  • Hi,

     

    The performance issue can be caused by many factors. Please first refer to the following article for a test.

    You also can test the issue in Safe Mode and Clean Boot. If the issue persists, you can open Resource Monitor, verify which process or service use the CPU and Memory.

     

    Best Regards,
