Computer suddenly very sluggish.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Went to use my computer this morning and everything was as usual. After a few hours had a BSOD with a whea_uncorrectable_error message. After I forced a shutdown and booted back up the computer ran extremely slowly. Programs will take several minutes to load, cursor is jumpy and slow, difficult to access things due to the slow response. Windows event logs showed a kernel power shutdown error with no other relevant information. Idling at the desktop I have 3% cpu usage, 12% memory usage, and variable but nearly 100% disk usage on the ssd. I ran HD Tune benchmark and smart info, screenshots below, but nothing seems off to me. System is a 4770k at stock, 32gb ram, samsung 500gb ssd, evga gtx 1070.

Something is screwed up in windows and causing it to spam your drive with accesses.

When was the last time you clean installed windows?

Have you upgraded windows or cloned/migrated it?

Do you often get BSODs?


My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

Windows install is only a few months old. Have not upgraded or cloned it. Only very recently have I had the BSOD issues, 3-4 times now. Always that same error.

Do you have any other drives than just your OS drive?

Is your OS drive a hard drive or SSD?

Did you update to windows 1703?

The files are easy but I have many programs that I no longer have the CDs and Licence keys to. Those programs are important and as of now I have no way to reinstall them.

You can try sfc /scannow in CMD, that might fix stuff, but the best solution would be to clean install windows on the SSD.

You should have all drives except the SSD unplugged, and delete all the partitions on the SSD before clean installing, otherwise you will probably run into problems again.

Trying to avoid that if possible. Disk usage now down to normal, computer still very sluggish.

Yeah, try sfc /scannow, and check for windows updates and restart your PC.
