Preferred Solution: Hard drive never stops; computer slow

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

for a start you need to double your ram

what are you running
video card
cpu
m/board
ram
power supply
brand
wattage

check the listings in the bios for voltages and temperatures and post them


do a disk cleanup and defrag

My Computer freezes and stops working only when im downloading a torrent or try to stream!
The Red Blinking light (Which im sure is for the Hard Disk) stops blinking once these freezes happen
When it freezes sometimes i cant even restart it with the restart button on the case and have to take its cable out.The problem has been on my computer for a year but i havent tried fixing it.

I had a blue screen of death once but that was months ago.
Havent ReInstalled Windows even once since ive got it last year.

Sidenote: I sometimes have Administrator problems and cant do some stuff when i am the administrator could that be the problem?

A:[SOLVED] Slow Boot Time, Slow Transfer Rates(Hard drive to hard drive)

Transferring files from SATA to IDE is a process- and IDE is no where near as fast as SATA, so you can expect some transfer times there. For the boot issue, it sounds like the computer is confused on what to load at first. Check your startup and recovery options by right-clicking my computer, advanced, startup and recovery, and see if multiple opearting systems are there. If so, remove the one that you know you don't want to load by editing the file.

I had to have my hard drive replaced after constant blue screens and shut downs, now since then my computer just runs slower and lags on all media players, games and even firefox is kinda slow. I'm using XP and I updated all the drivers pretty much that seemed important. some media files lag real bad while some run ok, while any game just runs real slow. I never had problems like this with the old hard drive and they are pretty much the same.

I am using Window 7 and my computer is very slow.  It always seems like the hard drive is running.  If I go into Windows Task Manager, Performance, click on Resource Manager, then click Disk, PID 4 sometimes has a high level of activity.  It is accessing all kind of files on my computer.  There doesn't seem to be any malware/viruses.  Does anyone know what is going on?
 
Thank you!

Hi, I recently restored a slow computer for a friend. They said it was running slowly, and they were right. The hard drive was 100% full, so I ran disk cleanup, and that freed up some space. Then, I uninstalled programs that they did not need. That freed up a ton of space. I got the free space up to 50%. After I defragmented, the thing was faster than my new laptop. Im just curious, why did freeing hard drive space speed up the computer, and why does a full drive slow down the computer?

A:Replaced hard drive - still slow computer.

My two cents - I suspect a failure on the motherboard, possibly the controller.

The steps you took seem to be correct, going through the repair options, running a diagnostic on the HDD or just outright replacing it, and reinstalling Windows.

Since the problem reoccurs even with a new hard drive, and even in a new Windows install, I would think motherboard next.

Hi Guys,
I went out a bought a Roku adapter in order to view movies from Net Fliks. Due to the result of adding this piece of hardware my E drive vanished and my computers speed dropped appreciably. I took my PC to an expert and the "missing drive" appeared but when I re-hooked it up at home my drive once again did not appear. Just a warning that if you experience a very slow pc or missing drives check for external hardware items ie Roku.

A:Slow computer and vanishing hard drive

if you fill out the specs of your computer in the bottom left hand corner of your post, as well as the model of your Roku adapter it will help a lot.

My roommate gave me his old computer that no longer worked due to a ton of viruses from a lot of random downloads. I took it in to a computer repair shop and they installed a new hard drive and said it should be working fine, now. It is definitely working and seems to be working well for the most part, but it's really slow. I have a ton of free disk space, so it shouldn't be that. I was just wondering, is it possible there's still viruses or anything that's keeping the computer running so slow?

A:Computer with new hard drive running really slow

If the shop removed the old hard drive, replaced it with a new in box hard drive, and installed the operating system from legitimate install media, applied the OS updates, updated all applications, and installed a reputable AV and antimalware programs,, then you shouldn't have an infection.  Can you give some system specs for the machine?  Processor, RAM, hard drive size, operating system, applications installed.

I upgraded everything in my computer except my hard drive and cd drive (which are both roughly 7 years old) I have a core 2 duo 2.33 gh processor, 3 gig ram, yet still it seems my computer has slow response time on most things. I always figured it was lack of ram but with the 3 gigs i have now im pretty sure that's not it. So my question is, could your hard drive actually slow down your computers response time? and anyway to check it with system tools?

I have antivirus, firewall, and spybot so I don't think it's software either..

A:Slow (probably damaged) Hard drive keeps computer from starting

Since you said you plugged it into your laptop; and it took ages to load once recognized; i would have to say that drive unfortunately is on its way out. However; you can attempt to recover the data you need using some of the free data recovery programs out there

I just googled for free recovery software; and since i am not a expert in the use of data recovery programs; I will let you look through the results and decide what route to go:

First of all sorry if the is the wrong forum area, first time poster.

The other day the hard drive for my laptop crashed so I bought a new one and installed it, but ever sense I have installed the new hard drive and installed Windows my computer has been running really slowly. Does anyone have any idea as to what might be the issue? My specs are as follows:
Windows 7 64bit
Intel i3 2.27GHz
4GB RAM
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730
Seagate Momentus XT Hybrid Drive
It is a prebuilt Alienware m15x and so I am having a hard time finding the Motherboard.
If any other information is needed I will gladly do my best to find it. Thank you in advance.

A:Installed New Hard Drive and now Computer Runs Slow

The most common cause of problems for a New Install is that the User (you) did not install the motherboard drivers.

It appears your alienware laptop is being supported by Dell. Here's is the link to the driver download section for your m15x laptop:

Drivers and Downloads | Dell [United States]

Another way motherboard drivers are referred to is "chipset" drivers. Check Device Manager (click "show hidden devices") to make certain that all of your hardware has drivers installed.

The hard drive on my system recently started running almost constantly after I log in The result is that it is basically unusable I was able to run HiJack this but I can not get many other programs such as IE Firefox and Itunes to even run they eventually open but are frozen I can t think of any recent changes that might have caused this Slow Drive Hard running alway Very Computer - to happen So far in investigating this issue I ran SuperAntiSpyware which did not find any threats other than advertising tracking cookies I also tried booting up in Safe Mode Booting in Safe mode seemed to fix the problem but the problem returns as soon as I boot normally So in the hopes that someone can help me track down the nasty program that is causing Hard Drive alway running - Computer Very Slow my computer to behave like this I have uploaded a Hijack This log Here are my system specs Windows XP SP AMD Athlon Processor GHz GB of RAM Two GB Hard Drives nbsp

I have Windows XP & Dell Dmension 8300 computer. My system has gotten very slow, and I can hear the computer working all the time, even when I'm not. It sounds like it's doing an antivirus scan all the time. When I check the task manager it shows no applications are open.
 

A:Solved: Slow computer/hard drive working

Perhaps you should post a screenshot of your running processes.

Hit ctrl + alt + del to open the task manager.

Open the processes tab and press ALT + Printscreen and paste it to MS Paint. Save as JPEG and post the screenshot back here.

What are your computer specifications? RAM, CPU...

My computer has become very slow to the point where it is very frustrating to use.  Its been happening over the course of probably 6 months now but I have just been putting up with it.  There is almost constant HDD activity.  Over the past couple of days I have uninstalled AVG Free virus scanner and installed Avast as I thought it was something to do with AVG as when I disabled it things were slightly better.  However it is back to its usual slow self.  I've also run a defrag on C drive which didn't really seem to improve anything.
When I look in Task Manager the file lsass.exe is always at the top with the most I/O reads and always increasing - not sure if thats useful info or not ?
 
I'm at a loss as to what to do next so really need some help please.
 
Cheers

A:Constant Hard Drive Activity, computer very slow

First do a scan using MBAM Free and allow it to remove all that it finds. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free
In the settings, allow scanning for PUPS and Rootkits.
 
Run a scan using Windows Repair (All In One) Download and allow it run Check Disk as seen in Step 3.
Check all the options for repair.

Hey everyone I will give you a little bit of information regarding External Slow Drive Computer & Problems Hard my PC problems Firstly I have a PC that was built by a computer shop for me My PC would be around years old now ancient in this day and age I know I operate Windows XP gig - Ram - GHz I use it mainly to surf the web music photo storage and for games on my External Hard Drive & Slow Computer Problems pc I ve been having problems with my PC of late IE and Fire Fox both quot hang quot or quot Freeze quot often I always seem to get quot This programme is not responding quot I have to use the task manager to close these programmes down most of the time So I started searching the internet looking for ways to help me speed up my PC I downloaded AdAware External Hard Drive & Slow Computer Problems Spybot Search amp Destroy and have Windows Defender This helped but hasn t completely solved my problem My next step in my mind would be to uninstall IE and re install it I use IE mainly and have FF for my back up when IE stops responding I regularly delete cookies temp files run disk defrag etc It all helps but it doesnt stop my PC from freezing in IE or FF Sooooo I read elsewhere that getting an external hard drive would be a good thing Not just incase of a crash but to help speed up my PC I purchased a Maxtor One Touch Mini - GB I have backed up my entire photo collection music and video collection So now to my questions Would uninstalling and reinstalling IE help with freezes and hang ups Should I back up my whole C drive to my external hard drive depending if I have room left of course Can I safely remove photographs and music from my PC now that they are on the external hard drive How do I view the photos stored on the external hard drive Do I have to keep the external hard drive plugged into my USB port all the time The external hard drive didn t have alot of instructions so I am basically clueless on how to use it I am sure as I become more involved in the forums I will have plenty more questions but these are the main ones that I have right now I appreciate any and all advice I get from you all Cheers Kris

A:External Hard Drive & Slow Computer Problems

I'm not sure I can answer all your questions, at least not so anybody could understand the answers, but...Would uninstalling and reinstalling IE help with freezes and hang ups?Should I back up my whole C drive to my external hard drive? (depending if I have room left of course)Can I safely remove photographs and music from my PC now that they are on the external hard drive? How do I view the photos stored on the external hard drive?Do I have to keep the external hard drive plugged into my USB port all the time?Unistalling IE, I don't think that's a good idea. Have you kept up on the XP udates? When did you last run chkdsk? If you haven't run it, go to start, run, and type in chkdsk and hit enter. It doesn't take long and may help. You can also run sfc /scannow, you need to have your XP disk in so files can be repaired or replaced. I have to sit by my computer while it runs because I have to click on the Retry button alot.My external just has the files I think are important, photos, some Word files, things like that. You don't need to backup Windows, in my opinon.You can remove photos from your hard drive if you've backed them up. I would suggest you put them on disk also, in case something happens to your external drive.You should be able to access your external by going to start, my computer and it will show up there. Open it up and you should find everything you transfered.I only plug in my external when I want to use it, either for backup or to get something from it.Hope this helps...

Hi folks

Here is the problem. Had a problem about 2 weeks ago and got help from PCForum. They had me come to this site for a program.

Computer worked for a few days and started slowing down. When trying to open pages in Mozilla, it sometimes will take several minutes.

The more I use the computer the slower it gets. The hard drive is always accessing and the wireless connection is always on (transmitting and receiving. Also, when I close Mozilla, it stays open in task manager and continued to grow. I finally shut it down when it topped 450K of mem. usage. I've never seen it over 150K before.

svshost. exe is open 8 times in task manager.

I have to manually disconnect my wireless to get the light to go off.

Any suggestions as to where to go from here?

Thanks

A:Computer running slow, hard drive and wireless always on

Download malwarebytes and update it and then run it.

Clear your temp files with atf cleaner

Scan your computer with the free scanner at eset.com

I've had this problem now for a while, the hard drive light is constantly flashing and you can hear the drive doing what it does, so decided to go ahead and do an upgrade.  Bought a new 2TB WD hard drive, and did a new install of Win 7 Home Edition.  
 
Problem still exists.  I am looking at the Resource Monitor > Disk Activity and there is a lot of stuff going on.  I've captured a screen shot.  Can anyone tell me what is going on and can I stop this madness?  I left my computer running all night, woke up around 4 am, and it is just as busy as ever.
 
Ran malwarebytes on it today and says everything is clean.
 
Help.
 
Thanks!

A:New install, new hard drive, but hard drive never stops

Pretty much just looking like windows indexing your hard drive on a clean install. Pretty normal. SearchIndexer.exe is the windows indexing programing, that is reading the files and the data being written below that to the programdata\microsoft\search\ directories is where the indexed data is stored. This just makes it faster to search for files using the Windows search function. Leave the computer on for a couple of days and it should finish shortly.
However I have seen it where if you have a file that is corrupted for some reason it will cause the search indexer to lock on that file. If you restored old data to your drive windows will reattempt to index all of that old data, and potentially run into a problem file. 
If it just drives ya nuts though you can just disable the searchindexer service by hitting Start, typing services.msc, hit enter. Towards the bottom of the list find the service named Windows Search, double click it and change the startup type to disabled. Restart and you should see decreased disk activity, but will find that if you search for files it will be a bit slower.

Hello,
I have a HP G60-443CL Notebook, 64 Bit Vista, lately is been slowed down considerably and the fan is running constantly and the hard drive light is almost constant. When I open an application such as browser, after a bit the hard drive begins to run constantly and slows the computer down to a crawl. The fan is always running loud. I do not notice anything under Task manger that appears to be hogging memory, but I may not know quite how to look more extensively. It has become very annoying and quite a hindrance to my work environment. If I try to run more than one application, everything on the computer just slows down tremendously. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

Windows XP - My computer started making the popcorn popping sound like it is constantly writing to the hard drive and the computer is slow or occasionally gets hung up. Not sure if it's related, but recently I received hundreds of mail delivery failure notices in Outlook Express for mail I had not sent to people I do not know/have in my address book. I changed my password and it stopped for a month, but lately I get about 5 delivery failures a day.

MSE finds nothing, but lately it takes 24 hours to complete a full scan.

I appreciate any assistance you can offer. Thanks!

I updated my hard drive from a 500 gig to a terabyte and down my computer is running alot slower. I also installed Windows 7 Enterprise (32 Bit). I am using DDR2 Ram, with 6144 Mbytes, the total physcial memory is 3.24 gigs. Can anyone help me in resolving the speed issue??

A:Updated Hard Drive to a Terabyte and now computer running slow

you have 6gb of ram installed, but you are using windows 32bit.. that could be one reason you running slow, as windows 32bit will only show 4gbs of ram.. you need windows 64bit to have windows use and show all your ram... swapping hard drives should not slow your system down... was it a brand new hard drive or a used one??

Recently when i was on my computer my monitor screen just went blank but my computer was on. So I restarted the computer it worked for a few mintus and just blanked out again. So i decided to switch the ide and the sata cables (i have 2 hard drives) so after wards it worked for a while but after a few weeks it went off again. Can it be because the cables i was useing in both terms were messed up.
 

A:hard drive just stops

On the face of it, heat is a possible cause. Check fans, that heat sinks are seated properly and that air-flow is in no way impeded. If you can open the case, try blowing air in with a small fan to see if the machine runs longer, and check the hardware temps in BIOS if available.

You may have better luck diagnosing if you put the cables back and change just one item at a time in attempts to solve the problem. After all, it did work the way the cables were connected originally, and the sort of intermittent problem you describe is rarely due to cabling.

Also running a disk check would be advised, right click HDD icon > properties > tools > error checking > check now > agree to schedule a disk check at next boot

Also things like this disk check software can show any faults with the drive

Well the first thing I want you to check is this:
Right click My Computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager

In the window that loads click the + next to IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers > Select Primary IDE Channel > Properties > Advanced Settings and tell us what the settings there are.

These setting controls the speed that your harddrive transfers data at.

It is also possible that your harddrive is failing which would cause slow read/write times. If you could post the maker of your harddrive we can direct you to their specific diagnostic tool to see if your harddrive is in fact failing.

Hi,

I am using Windows 7 ultimate 32 bit version. I have 2 hard drives a 120G Kingstone SSD on which i have the OS(that runs ok) and a WDC 250G regular SATA hard drive(whit which i have problems). My problem is that lately when it comes to the second drive windows act strange . When i boot windows it sees the sata drive with all the partitions. The access to the data on it seems slower. After around lets say 5-10 minutes the hard drive cannot the accessed and windows no longer sees it. After reboot everything is back to normal(for the next 5-10 minutes, the the problem is back). What is the problem?

Thanks.

A:Windows 7 stops seeing second hard drive

I would first check my cables to make sure they are completely seated and not losing connection to the drive. If that does not help I would run the manufacturer's Diagnostic test and run the DOS test, the short drive self test and the long drive test, The Western Digital software can be found at WD Support / Downloads / SATA & SAS / WD Black If that one won't work, try using Seagate's diagnostic Seatools for DOS SeaTools for DOS | Seagate

Hello all,

I currently have a 2 year old computer (top of the line when I bought it back in the days) with Windows Vista. Just recently have I been noticing this problem...the hard drive light is constantly on and I can hear the hard drive always running. I'm not sure what is causing it as I cannot tell much from the task manager. After booting up, the hard drive starts running right away. I wonder if it has to do with the Windows Updates I've just installed or the websites my daughter keeps visiting (facebook/youtube).

Any help/advice is greatly appreciated...I just want the hard drive to run...when it's supposed to, not when the computer is idle.

Thanks,

Here's a couple XP problems my buddy has on an Intel ASUS PE4MoBo, 2.4 Ghz Pentium

1. Hard drive keeps active. Constantly caching maybe? He has a new 80 gb maxtor and Norton System works is loaded. It really slows the system down while this hard drive is constantly reading.

2. ATI radeon 9500, fails a couple self tests with Direct X. Yet I can't find direct x anywhere, did a search and came up with an empty Dirx directory, reloaded Dirx 9.0 but I can't find the set up icon for testing.

A:hard drive activity never stops

1. Press ctrl-alt-delete and bring up the Windows task manager. Select the process tab. Look in the cpu column. This shows how much cpu resources each process is using. While the hard drive is constantly being accessed check which processes are using the most cpu. This may help to narrow down what exactly is causing the hard drive to be constantly accessed.

2. The directx utility is most easily accessed by going to start-->run then typing dxdiag.

A:Hard Drive Stops Responding Before Burn

dannybz said:

Hello,

I have XP SP2, and was using MP11 B1 to burn a MP3 CD when my Hard Drive began to make some strange sound, like when a fan is stuck with something, tak tak tak tak tak... then my computer went out with a blue screen and an error message that said something like there has been internal error possible cause is new hardware. The message said that my computer will have to restart and if problem persists, to contact manufacturer. So I shut down my computer and restarted it, and my HDrive would make that same sound. I just shut it down immediately.

Please, anyone, please don't tell me that I have lost all my data. Is there any way to retrieve any data from my HDrive without risking losing any more info, music, docs. that is, if data has not been lost already. Is it possible to "open" the hard drive and fix the prob, (im do not fix hardware, neither hard drives), Im just asking, maybe someone who is an expert in hardware repair/troubleshooting can do it.

HELP PLEASEClick to expand...

Install a new harddrive and see if you can access the old one as a slave. If you were willing to pay a very high price, there are companys that could probably retreive the data for you.

This has happened to me 2 times today and I think one time last night, and I don't know why.

I have my 640GB HDD which has my OS partition, and I have my 1TB WD HDD which has games and other things. For some reason that hard drive and both partitions disappears from windows. Rebooting fixes it, but I don't want to have to do that who knows how many times a day.

EDIT: I Think it was a prob with my sata cord. I moved it and plunged it into a diff sata slot and I changed my power management and it is still going ok...so prob solved!?

Hi,

I have found something odd today. Normally my computer goes into hybrid sleep mode just fine. But I have just added an oldish SATA hard drive to the system, and now it won't go into sleep mode.

After selecting Sleep, the screen fades to black then immediately returns to the "computer locked" screen.

The drive itself seems to work fine, and the problem goes away after disconnecting the SATA cable from it.

Anybody got any ideas for this one?

My computer is a Gateway 200 series laptop (aka crap-I-should've-never-bought). I'm running on Windows XP Pro, and I've just had to reformat my computer because I've been getting "Operating System Not Found" errors. That's not the problem though, the thing is that the hard drive randomly just stops spinnning and the whole computer just crashes, does a memory dump, then restarts. Sometimes it stops spinning and starts again and stops and starts until the whole thing just craps out and I have to reformat it again because when I restart the computer, it does the whole "Operating System Not Found" thing again. I can't download service pack 2 or install anything because of these random hard drive stops. Is it a problem with the hard drive disk or is it a problem with whatever controls it?

A:my 2nd hard drive stops windows booting

Hi namdas, welcome to TSG....

What operating system is running on the primary master drive?

Does it still boot up by itself?

Once you disconnected the problem drive and put it into another machine, you more than likely changed the jumpers....make sure you change them back to slave when attempting to re-install it in your other machine.

Also, bios will need to re-recognize the drives again as well.

I have an external hard drive - ClickFree 527B3, 500GB. It doesn't have warranty. Whenever I try to write files to it it will stop working, and show up as empty, after 16GB have been written. I reformatted it and the same thing happened. I tried creating two (primary) NTFS partitions and only one worked in Disk Managment. Is there any hope for this drive?

A:External Hard Drive stops working after 16GB

Your ClickFree is a speciality product used to automatically backup the content of the PC to which it is plugged in. We may not know how it is configured to achieve that goal.

In general,

You may have to stick to the procedures laid down for the device on how to format it through ClickFree interface and how to use it.

I also understand you have a Master Reset facility that will reset the drive to factory defaults.

If all these do not resolve your problem you may have to take up the matter with the Tech Support for ClickFree.

You may also check Clickfree and Kooboodle Forums on some troubleshooting tips and other discussions.

You may also post a screenshot of how your ClickFree shows up in Windows Disk Management. ( Please click on the Show/Hide Console Tree and Show/Hide Action Pane icons on the tool bar of Windows Disk Management screen so that we get a full screen view without any truncation.)

I tried to defrag my fathers hard drive on his windows xp sp2 based Dell system and it couldn't defrag certain .BIN files. Where it shows you the color coded analysis of your fragmented hard drive there are many larger areas that are totally red (fragmnented files) I tried to run scan disc and it got to stage 4 of 5 and scanned up until 59% and then stopped.
I know he tried installing some Norton System Works program and it didnt complete installation - he tried to "go back " after installation failed and it gave him some error message which I wasn't there to see. He has Norton Antivirus 2007 (against my recommmendations) installed also.

Could those .BIN files that I can't defrag be something from Norton System Works ? Is there any way for me to get rid of them without removing Norton Antivirus ? Any help would be appreciated.

As I understand it, .bin files can be just about anything.http://www.iceteks.com/articles.php/binfile/1I guess I don't know what you mean when you say you couldn't defrag .bin files.Hopefully, you meant that you tried to run chkdsk /r or chkdsk from My Computer, rather than "scan disc" or (worse) NSW.XP Chkdsk, Using the Graphical Version (My Computer) - http://www.updatexp.com/windows-xp-chkdsk.html Be sure to insert check marks in both boxes.I used NAV for about 5 years and NIS for another. If you want to uninstall NSW completely, you need to try using Removing your Norton program using SymNRT - http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgen...v=&osv_lvl= LouisA drive which needs to have chkdsk run...normally will have trouble defragging. Chkdsk runs first, then defrag.

A:Seagate 2TB Hard Drive not responding, stops programs from working

Hi,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

That does sound like the controller on the drive has gone.

Is the drive still under warranty?

If you don't know - Is it possible to open the drive case? (The external casing not the actual drive case).
There will be a date code on the drive. That will tell you when it was made. Or grab the serial number and plug into Seagate's warranty page and it will tell you.

There are several "hacks" that some people use to try and get drives working, though the mostly pertain the drive heads more than controllers. I'm not going to recommend you try those because the can be destructive. However, if you use google, I'm sure you will find some.

You could send it off if it's under warranty. If the controller has failed Seagate will probably swap it out (since they really don't like replacing drives unless they have to).

However, they will not guarantee the safety of your data, and won't take much care not to lose the data.

Alternatively, there are disk recovery services around. However these tend to be expensive. Depends on what the data is worth to you.

I assume you've tried it in different computers/different USB ports? Have you also tried a different cable?

I've also come across cables that need a little bit of a "jiggle" at the drive end to make them work.

I've looked all over for help but alas; nothing.

Put simply, I'm using a decent Lenovo B560 laptop, and when playing games or running programs linked to the hard drive disk, it freezes intermittently.

Not sure what's causing it, but the whirring of the disk drive can be heard for about 3 seconds, at which point it slows down, and then the game freezes until the hard drive starts whirring again. It doesn't seem to be able to keep itself running in order to keep playback fluid; it just keeps spinning long enough to power 3-4 seconds of playback.

Any ideas?

System is 7 64 bit, with Intel Core i5 CPU M480 @
2.67GHz
3GB RAM

A:Laptop hard drive runs for 3 seconds, stops, and causes freezing

Normally when a disk is making noise it's going to quiet soon. I would make a backup of what ever you want to save.
You can run a disk check up.
Computer and pick what drive you want to check and right click on it. Pick tools and check/disk. On my computers I do it the simple way. If a hard disk is making unusual noises I replace it. First save what you can before it quiets completely.

Hi -There are 2 options to look at with this type of fault -The first known one is Power Supply Unit is Faulty / Dying / or just not putting out enough power - Have it tested - Known to produce "Pixilated effect" -The other one involves your WerFault.exe error , also known as Windows Error and Fault Reporting.exe tool -This is one solution if there are currently no hardware problems on your system, or there are no other major software Errors on your system -The Werfault.exe process is a part of Windows Error Reporting in Windows (Vista and Windows7) - If you do not want certain executable files or programs to send error reports, you may also create a block list.These are detailed steps you can follow to customize Windows Error and Fault Reporting.exe tool1.Go to Windows Error Reporting > open Control Panel. 2.Click > System and Maintenance, and then click > Problem Reports and Solutions.3.Click > Change Settings located in the left panel of the Problem Reports and Solutions window.4.Select an option to configure how you want Windows to look for a solution to your problems. You may allow Windows to do it automatically or ask you every time to check if problem occurs.5.Next, click the > Advanced settings link.6.Select On or Off to configure whether you want to use Error Reporting or not.7.Click Change settings and choose the appropriate option to configure how you want problem reporting to be set for all users and programs.8.If you choose to use Error Reporting, then click the second Change setting button to configure how error reporting is set for all users. Here, you can choose from the following consent levels: - Ask each time a problem occurs ? Windows Error Reporting will ask for permission before sending an error report- Automatically check for solutions ? Minimal data is sent to find a possible fix. After consent is given, more data may be sent if requested by Microsoft.- Automatically check for solutions and send additional information if needed ? Minimal data along with data that the application developer has indicated as a requirement is sent. This sent data does not contain any personally identifiable information. After consent is given, more data may be supplied if requested by Microsoft.- Send all data - All data is sent, no prompt required. This setting is configurable only in Group Policy.9.If you do not want certain executable files or programs to send error reports, you may create a block list. To do this, click Add in the Block list section.10.Browse through your programs and add them to the list.11.Click OK to save your settings.You can try the above method as a side line, but it may not fully repair the problem, just the Werfault.exe pop-upsIf you are having any other major problems, do not disable this but post back with the other problems only -Thank You -

This week I encountered the following strange problem for which I haven't found a final solution so far though I have found some bandaids But having a complete solution -or at least a reason why this problem occurs- would be great I have a working installation of Windows Professional x in UEFI mode The main disk SSD contains the following partitions using GPT ESP MSR system data An additional disk HD with a single data partition using MBR is also attached to the system With this setup everything works fine Now after adding another disk HD to the system -my old system disk bootable using MBR one active primary partition and an extend partition another Windows booting drive adding hard UEFI mode after in stops with three logical disks - Windows will no longer boots completely The boot process begins the Windows logo is shown Then a message is shown in text mode quot Windows is loading files quot with a loading bar After a while the boot process stops and I am dropped into the EFI shell After removing the offending HD Windows boots normally again I tried removing HD and only attaching Windows stops booting in UEFI mode after adding another hard drive HD together with SSD but this yielded the same problem Using SSD by itself works fine though Booting from a Linux live-cd works without problems All disks and partitions are found and can be mounted There I Windows stops booting in UEFI mode after adding another hard drive erased the disk signature from the offending HD and now Windows was able to boot and also found all disks and partitions correctly But after a reboot the same problem reappeared My current assumption is that after removing the disk signature Windows no longer regards HD during the boot process and only setups the disk after booting has finished But as soon Windows stops booting in UEFI mode after adding another hard drive as it has a disk signature again Windows includes HD in the boot process and probably the partition ordering gets mixed up compared to what Windows expects So my question is why does this boot problem occur and how can I fix it permanently and will it happen for any new disk I attach to my system

A:Windows stops booting in UEFI mode after adding another hard drive

Has HD#3 any active partitions?
What happens if you boot with HD#3 attached only?
How did you erase the disk signature? As far as I know you can only update it

My computer has been running perfectly fine for over a year Today I was putting extra hard drives as a secondary drive to see what Drives, Computer While Stops Startup Testing Displaying Hard at Picture was on them I tried the first one and it started up fine I tried the second one and it displayed an error at the boot screen I realized I forgot to check the jumpers on that one I tried starting up with just my main hard drive again and it started fine I While Testing Hard Drives, Computer Stops Displaying Picture at Startup tried the last extra hard drive making sure the jumpers were correct and then the big problem started It powered up fans came on hard drives ran but no picture I tried to start it up again with just my main and the same thing Now whenever the power is plugged in the power light is on whether the computer is on or not When I hit the button PSU fan processor fan spins You can hear the hard drive running Nothing is displayed at all There is a red light now on the motherboard which I believe is usually green I have tried reseating the RAM in all configurations so unless both sticks went bad at the same time I believe that is fine I tried to start with both of the hard drives which worked mins previously so I belive they are also okay Everything is plugged in properly The only thing I did differently the last time it worked properly was I shut it down with the power button being I didn t have the keyboard mouse plugged in My only ideas are PSU problem Processor problem Motherboard problem nbsp

A:While Testing Hard Drives, Computer Stops Displaying Picture at Startup

My Hypothesis is the PSU, if it's to small, then it can't power anything, but usually it won't even start with not enough power, what are your system specs and PSU wattage?

I just installed a brand new Western Digital Hard Drive 160 gig. I partitioned it with FDISK, then formated, then did a clean install of windows XP. Everything was fine until after i finished the installation, and i tried to connect my old maxtor 20 gig so i could transfer some files over, and the computer stopped reading both hard drives. When i start it up, the computer can't boot from either drive. I've tried disconnecting each of the drives and only booting with one connected, with no luck. I also tried changing the gray strip, I can't remember what its official name is, but that didnt help either. When I go into BIOS and let it auto detect my drives, It wont recognize either of the drives.

I have a dell dimension 8200 windows xp home edition sp3. One of my hard drives has the fbi virus. I cant boot from a usb on it but the computer can have two hard drives plugged in at once. Could i plug the dirty hard drive in and scan and remove the virus from the clean one?.

A:Scanning dirty hard drive from clean hard drive in same computer

Hello, and Welcome
 
Detach the drive without the FBI virus. On another computer download Kaspersky Rescue Disk. Burn the iso to a CD. On a Windows 7 computer simply right click the iso and select Burn Disk Image. Connect the computer with the FBI virus via a Ethernet cable so Kaspersky can update it's definitions. Boot the disk and then open the terminal and type windowsunlocker (all lower case) shown in this guide. Then run the antivirus on the Kaspersky disk

I have Hard hard -> work issue drive at down slow been experiencing this issue on a regular basis ever since I got my Vista desktop Recently I upgraded to Windows and the problem persists Every once in a while the hard drive starts working intensively and the computer becomes almost unresponsive It stays like this Hard drive hard at work -> slow down issue for anywhere between minutes and a couple hours If I reboot the Hard drive hard at work -> slow down issue issue does not go away the quot process quot continues until it completes at which moment the computer becomes normally responsive again I have tried Hard drive hard at work -> slow down issue to track down the culprit using both the Task Manager Resource Monitor and Process Explorer It's not obvious what the process causing the slowdown is but it seems to run in a svchost exe I am quite sure that changes to very large files on the hard drive hundreds on megabytes gigabytes trigger it CPU usage is relatively low For diagnostic purposes I have disabled several tasks antivirus antimalware defragmentation system restore prefetch windows search file indexing -- to no avail the problem persists My theory so far is this when files on the hard drive undergo changes particularly large files Windows runs some scheduled process at normal priority to reorganize the hard drive and or compress or defragment files irrespective of my settings The larger the files the more time it takes to complete and the longer system responsiveness is limited The annoyance is that during this time I cannot use the computer I have to wait it out As I mentioned rebooting does not help As a matter of fact if I reboot then the shutdown and restart are extremely slow can take - minutes each It drives me crazy I was hoping that the upgrade to Windows would fix the problem but it didn't Any advice

It all started with a problem with a Spybot update. Ultimately, I wound up removing that program. Now, my HP 1600 Personal Media USB drive is not recognized by the system. When I power the drive on, there is a little "talking" between the computer and the drive but otherwise nothing. I tried plugging the drive into a different USB port on the same computer to no avail, AND when I have the drive connected now, every process crawls. If I run a program and I get tired of waiting, I power off the external drive and all works fine.

I reinstalled the driver and that didn't work. Please dont tell me the only solution is to reformat the drive since it is almost completely full.

Hey guys,

I have a HP Touchsmart IQ500. Turning my computer PC on today, all I got was a blue HP invent screen with setup, boot menu, system recovery, and system diagnosis, and I could not get past it.

I entered the BIOS and figured out that the hard drive was listed as "not installed." Pretty sure that is the main problem.

I tried a system restore (with the Windows 7 install disc), but I guess the computer couldn't read the hard drive enough to enter safe mode (I tried restarting and F8ing several times).

I put in an external hard drive, and the BIOS read it; however, windows does not allow you to partition an OS on a hard drive.

I am all out of ideas; I'm currently taking apart the computer (touchsmarts are hard to pry open), but I have no clue about computers so I'm hoping one of you guys can help.

Thanks in advance!

A:Computer Not Booting Hard Drive/Unresponsive Hard Drive

It should be under warranty...probably too late but taking it apart will most likely void the warranty.....sounds like a dead hard drive/loose cable
