I have a Dell Latitude E6400 that runs very slowly, and when looking in Resource Monitor, the hard disk activity frequently spikes to 100% when only 1 MB/s is being read/written to the disk. The same thing happens in Safe Mode. The hard disk is a Crucial V4 128 GB SSD. There is still 80 GB of free space available. Here are the specs:
Dell Latitude E6400
Core 2 Duo @ 2.6 GHz
4 GB RAM
128 GB Crucial V4 SSD
Intel GMA 4500HD Graphics
Windows 7 Ultimate X64
In Resource Monitor, there is no single process hogging all of the hard disk transfer. But, whenever I launch an application, like Google Chrome, disk activity spikes to 100%. I've already tried reformatting and reinstalling the OS, but it din't help. Any ideas?
