Extreme loading RRS feed

  • Question

  • I get extreme hard drive processing when I play music. ESPECIALLY new music which is odd. It goes away, comes back, goes away, comes back... I turned indexing off and I have Vista Basic 32bit

  • Hello Nile,


    Thanks for your post!


    Please update the drivers for BIOS, motherboard and audio card, and then check the issue again.


    If the problem still occurs, please let me know


    1.    If this problem occurs when using Windows Media Player to play music?

    2.    The system information of your computer, especially motherboard and audio adapter.

    3.    More details and description of the problem.

  • I have updated my audio driver already, which improved the problem somewhat.  But, there are no updates for my BIOS and I cant find where to update my motherboard nor info about it.

    1. Yes
    2. I cant find where to update my motherboard nor info about it.
    3. When I pause the music, the problem goes away. I have disabled sound enhancements.

  • Hello Nile,


    Thanks for your feedback.


    Based on my experience, this issue is possibly caused by hardware confliction or incorrect power management. In such a case, I need to check the hardware compatibility and available update released by manufacturers.


    To send me the system information, you may use the following steps:


    1.   Click Start and then click Run…

    2.   Type msinfo32 and press Enter.

    3.   Click File and select Save to store the information into a .NFO file.


    For your convenience, I have created a workspace for you.  You can upload the information files to the following link.  (Please choose "Send Files to Microsoft")


    Workspace URL: (https://sftasia.one.microsoft.com/choosetransfer.aspx?key=9736493f-b345-4b8d-b0bc-ba3e9b921e01)

    Password: xVAj_aTRAv*[dlx


    Note: Due to differences in text formatting with various email clients, the workspace link above may appear to be broken.  Please be sure to include all text between '(' and ')' when typing or copying the workspace link into your browser.


    Thanks for your cooperation! We are happy to be of further assistance.

  • Hello,


    Thanks for your feedback!


    I recreate another workspace, please try again:




    The password is: hDSEbchG[JD*!+5


    Please also let me know:


    1.    If the problem occurs when playing music with other player? For example, iTune.

    2.    Whether this problem occurs after performing a clean boot:

    (KB929135) How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista

    3.    For more efficiently troubleshooting this problem, please also contact the manufacturer of the motherboard and hard disk to report this problem, and see if this is a known issue.


    Thanks! I'm happy to assist your from Windows side.
