    100% disk usage for no reason?

    After putting my computer to hibernate and powering it back on, my disk usage would stay at 100%. All the transfer speeds are around 0.1 mb/s and I'm not sure what could be causing the 100% disk usage.

    Another thing is that it windows notifies me to scan my hard drive for errors, which I have done, but this keeps repeatedly happening.

    Is there any fix to this problem?

    I think u will have to run a system scan from the cmd. try sfc /scannow
    and press enter [ as an admin ]
    and please tell us about your system specs!
    especially abt your ram

    or if nothing works try a system repair with ur windows disc
