I have asus laptop (i5 7th gen, 12 gig ram and 1 tb hdd).

Whenever i start laptop, it starts lagging nd hanging, its performance is very poor, after checking i found it is consuming disk usage 100%.
I google and did some troubleshooting myself, removed skype, chrome and even anti virus, kill some task permanently, and even flashed windows several times but nothing worked.
Current version win 10 pro.

Is there any pro dimer who can help me out.

Is my hdd faulty.

Ps – i realised this after my warrenty gets over as i rarely use my laptop.

so far i have followed below things as suggested by google and wiki

Disable SuperFetch service.
Removed chromeand skype.
Update device drivers.
Perform a diskcheck.
Reset Virtual Memory.
Disable Antivirus Software.

All you need to do is update windows. Thats all…. but thats the most tricky part too, you have to check for updates again and again even if it shows all updated Check for Oct update 2021-10 cumulative update windows 10 virsion 21H1 I had the same issue in newly purchased laptops, just keep updating your laptop,

Solve nhi hua,as final solution is to get an ssd..and yes it will take time.

My office laptop same problem from one year, but i ignore not interested to change laptop data transfer, so most of the times for me automatically problems goes off and after couple months it wil be back for few days,it goes on like that. U also wait for one month, if not format and see, after that look for ssd or other options

it shows fully updated, but check for active hours, and try updating again and again. windows updates these days are not provided all at time, you need to check it after every few hours

as such i cant see nvidia container contribution in disk usage, in all process i found “nvidia display conatiner LS”, u talking about this?

Eventually you will have to buy a SSD, because your HDD technology is too slow and outdated as many other geeks here have suggested. Why not do that now .?

What’s the difference between the WD Green and WD Blue range of SSDs?

If anybody got user experience I mean. Google to maine bhi kar liya hai

Kuch WD Black bhi hai

WD Green is slowest, WD blue is faster & WD Black is fastest. In budget price range 2.5" sata ssd(aka the typical rectangular portable drive shape) the best options are only samsung 860/870 evo & crucial MX500. Among WD only ssd worth buying are their NVMe ssd from black series(WD Blue SN550 also used to be good but recently there have been news that in some countries they have downgraded the latest manufactured versions as cost cutting).

Conflicting as in?
Disk usage in task manager is 100% not disk consumption, m still left with 4-500gb as free space.
I reinstalled windows several times thought that there was some issues l with windows.
1 tb hdd is its capacity.
I hope m clear now?

Do a full disk check. Seems to me there maybe a bad sector on the hdd. If the system reports anything like that, then buying a new hd is better option than to keep using this one.

It seems your Laptop does not have NVMe slot so you’ll have to go for SATA SSD only. For that you’ll also need a caddy (priced around ₹300) if you want to keep using your existing HDD.

So in place of hdd, i have to install ssd and if i want to keep hdd as well then i have to remove my cd tray and usung caddy i can put hdd there…m i getting it right?

Yes, but you don’t necessarily have to put SSD in HDD’s place. SSD, HDD & your ODD (CD/DVD Drive) they all have the same connector & interface. In either place it’ll work fine.

Don’t think much. Anyhow your os is all formatted and have to reinstall everything. So why spend time doing all that on a HDD again and suffer with slow performance.
Just buy 256gb ssd and shift hdd to caddy. 128Gb might be too low in long run so avoid.
Since you are worried about cost, listing the lowest prices you could get them from amazon.
2.5" sata Ssd without dram+caddy approx @ 2500+200.
2.5" sata Ssd with dram+caddy approx @ 3300+200.
Use card discounts to save extra 150.
Youtube disassemble videos of your laptop and do it yourself. It’s pretty easy. If not spend another 500 and get it done by repair shops.

A single Philips head screwdriver is enough for assembling-disassembling most of the time which most of us already have in home.

Edit : I bought a caddy last year which already had a screwdriver bundled with it. stuck_out_tongue

No. We will need 2, Ph0 and Ph1 respectively. I will talk about my laptop, Ph0 can unscrew most of the screws but Ph1 is needed for HDD caddy, heat sink etc. 🙂🙂 Hardware manual actually specifies the exact specifications.
