100 Percent Disk Usage on Inspirion Laptop

Jump to solution

Hello there.

I have been having this issue for over a year now. I got my laptop 2 or so years ago and it worked great up until March of last year. It started booting up with 100 percent disk usage and sitting at 100.

I originally bought this laptop for gaming and have only used it to game. I did not use it much at all, so it is still fairly new. (Maybe 30 or so hours of gaming on it). Otherwise I used my desktop.

I tried multiple things last year to fix it, and eventually got fed up and left it be. Now I need the laptop to replace another computer, so I need it working.

I watched official Dell support videos on this issue, and nothing in the video helped me. I disabled SuperFetch, Windows Search, etc. I did a hard drive scan with support assist. I finally decided to reset the computer to factory settings and removing all my files. The issue is still there.

Right now the disk usage is sitting at 100% while I am just typing this up. No other programs are open or installed since I did the factory reset. I again disabled SuperFetch and Windows Search, still not helping at all.

I have screenshots of my System info and my resource monitor. Any help would be appreciated.2.PNG3.PNG4.PNG5.PNGCapture.PNG

This will always be the case until you change hard drive to an SSD.

There is no fix.
