After my PC started lagging in one small folder, I decided it was time to check the disk.
Some HDD utility told me there are 8 unstable sectors. Overall health looks fine, only 0.2% of the disk being "bad".
I ran chkdsk once (from the properties tab) and it found no errors...
I've never had a problem with my PC until lately. Before I had this problem I was able to play my game while I watch Streams or videos and had no problems. I was able to stream my games with no problem too. Now my PC would lag or freeze when I watch Twitch Streams or Youtube vids. When I go to...

I found this adapter that plugs instead of the CD reader which have SATA ports on it, so I decided to buy it and plug an SSD to it since my laptop runs off an HDD and its really annoying how unresponsive it is just wondered will it have standard W/R speeds? or will it be throttled, if it does...

Alright, so basically I bought a new laptop Asus X540U. Im not really familiar with computer booting but I really need everything explained because I tried everything I could. When I was at the shop, they said that the Windows 10 drivers must be installed. They gave me a disk but the laptop...
Yesterday I tried messing around with my storage devices, because I could not find my SSD in my folders. Well, after messing around in disk management for a while, I was able to get the SSD to show! After a while of gaming I turned off my computer for the night. The next day when I tried to boot...
TLDR; I thought I broke my hard drive but now it works again!
I was transferring some data from an external hard drive to my (C:) drive. When I was moving data from the drive, the power in my house went out. When I tried to restart my computer again after the power went out it did not...
I've been having this issue lately, and I am baffled on why it occurs.
My 7200 rpm HDD has this fluctuating issue where whenever I use a program for an extended period of time (usually 3ds Max/Maya, alike program of the stature) or play any modern game for extended time (mainly FFXII The Zodiac...
I just moved my OS over from my old HDD to my new SSD and everything in terms of the OS works it's just that after I deleted everything on my old HDD, as all the files were copied to my SSD, I can no longer use the majority of the disk as it remains un-allocated.
I have a 1TB HDD as...
I own an Acer Aspire VN7-792G laptop, had it for over a year and a half. It's a great machine and never had any problems before, nor did I go for any "personalization", as in it's still just how I bought it in terms of setup and everything.
About two months ago, I noticed that whenever...
Seemingly out of nowhere, windows stopped recognizing my HDD. It wasn't after downloading something, it wasn't after a shutdown or anything, just out of nowhere. When I tried to access the HDD, it said the "folder was empty". However windows still knew how much space was remaining on the drive...
The process "system" seems to be using a 100% disk usage. I know there are many who face this issue. The process points to the file ntoskrnl.exe. Also there's another process registry which point to the same file. can anyone help me with this. I have run anti-virus scan also and the files are clean.
Hello. I recently started having a problem with my laptop
Ever since a couple of days ago my CPU and DISK usage has been around 80 - 100% even on idle. I have no idea what happened but I've tried every single "fix" on the web and nothing is helping!

Disk C: (306GB almost used) (HDD)
Disk D: (390GB with 390GB free) (HDD)
I decided to make a thread since my C: disk is almost used with 5.20GB free.
I own 4 games located on Steam* and a couple of programs. I store some memes and a couple of...
Today, I saw a notification that my C partition has almost full storage.
How can I allocate space from disk 0 to a partition that is on disk 1?
Can I merge the disks?
What should I do in this situation?
A photo with my partitions is here and on imgur:
I've tried reinstalling windows to a freshly wiped SSD and every time I boot into windows I check disk partitioner it shows as a system partition. The last time i wiped this drive I wasn't able to boot into windows.
Here's what the drives look like right now...

The hard drive I have is 1TB 7200, but I have had it since 2014, so it could be getting old, but I’m not sure.
My temps while gaming never go above 68...
So I'm having an issue where my system (upon pressing power button) will do these steps:

Have had a Disk Error twice - simply restarting solves problem
If my system slows/freezes...
Recently I had the misfortune of having my Hard Drive die 😭. I don’t know what happened I was installing a new Powersupply, my guess is that I shorted my hardrive. Anyway, I recently bought a new SSD to be the replacement and once I got everything installed I popped in the Windows 10 disk to be...
Hello, I just built my computer less than 2 months ago, and it's already starting to lag. I look at task manager and the disk usage always goes super high when I'm opening programs and sometimes just randomly. Is there a way to fix this besides reinstalling Windows? Thanks!

I have a Xenta 700w Non-Modular PSU. Sometimes when I turn my PC on, it randomly starts making a loud buzzing noise that originated from the PSU. I fix it by turning it off by the socket and turning it back on. This sometimes work but sometimes it doesn't. Should I consider a replacement or...
Under heavy load, my 5 year old graphics card is finally getting much hotter than it was when I first got it. Using Open Hardware Monitor shows that my graphics card has run temps up to 91 degrees. About a year ago I re-seated the cooler and changed the thermal compound (the old stuff was...
I'm about to put together a new PC and I'm wondering if my old PSU is still good to go or if I should look into buying a new one. The old one is an XFX P1-850X-XXB9 850W, still actually has a newegg page up (https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207024).
Anyways, not sure...

I will be using those same Corsair SP 120s for the AIO.
So, do you think it will cut it?
I knew I wasn't making any sense before. After searching the file path, we now have a clue as to what the problem is.
According to someone elsewhere, Windows apparently cannot verify this file. This is the text I see below whenever I try to boot.
Could you check and see if I correctly understood the fan headers for the Asus Z270E mobo?
