Is my SSD dying?

OnionRings
 Share

Go to solution Solved by OnionRings,

It was AVG

A few days ago I noticed my computer started booting up slower than normal, not HDD slow but way slower. Normally when I boot it up the bing screen or w/e it is only lasts about a second but now I've had to wait 5-10 before being able to enter my PIN to get to my desktop.

 

Not sure if my SSD is dying or if it has anything to do with AVG I installed. Not sure why an antivirus would slow down my PC that much.

 

PS: Browsers seem a tad slower too.

Find the manufacturer of the SSD, then find their SSD checking tools, and see what they have to say.

and yes, AVG is a huge resource pig, it will make a noticeable impact...

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

How reliable is this tool? I mean if there are only blue lights, it really means that your HDD is without issue?

I don't think its the SSD, it must be AVG. Normally anti-viruses boot up before you boot up windows to prevent the viruses from getting access first, so thats why it take extra long booting time.
