CPU constantly running

Q: CPU constantly running

I have a Compaq Presario PC, windows XP W/SP2 installed. Model # SR1503WM. The CPU constantly runs whether computer is being used or not. I have checked the task manager and it shows CPU as 0% and compaq connections agent as the only application running. I have 1.24GB of RAM installed. I have Norton installed and AVG and have checked for spyware and computer seems to be clean of any. The unit seems to be cool as it is not hot when felt or air from it, and also is free of dust clogging vents and inside of unit. What could be the problem. It is 2 years old this month. The noise runs me crazy after a while, thanks!

Hey guys, I am running Vista on an AMD Phenom X4 9150e with 4gb ram. My hard drive is constantly running and chugging away pretty good too, reading rather than writing i believe. My cpu and memory usage are quite high and my system is running relatively slow for doing simple things like opening a browser. I have attached a screenshot of the system resource monitor with basically nothing running but hijack this and a browser. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have run scans with malware bytes and adaware, as well as AVG which all come up clean.

My CPU usage is always running at 50-55%, which it wasn't doing a week ago. When I check the "Processes" tab under Task Manager, there isn't any application/browser/programs that are taking up that cpu usage. I also ran a virus check with TrendMicro and it came up with nothing. I'd like to be able to know what is running in the background and stop it. It's making work related programs and browsing more slow.

Here is my Hijackthis log:

In Windows Task Manager, under the Performance Tab, my CPU is showing at 100% permanently. I've tried closing down some of the high runner processes but nothing makes any difference.

I've run several cleaners (RegCure, CCleaner etc) but again nothing makes any difference.
My PC is constantly freezing, hanging, sputtering and is becoming unusable.

I also noticed that when I manage to perform a normal shutdown, everything goes normally BUT my screen stays on, and the power button light remains on, but I can hear the drives and fan stopping. I then have to perform a manual powerdown by holding the on/off button for about 8-10 seconds.

My machine is a 3.06 GHz Pentium 4 Compaq Presario, 18 month old, O/S is Windows XP Home Edition, with SP 2.
Anyone out there have any ideas?
Thanks in advance

Model: Lenovo S41  
 
The fan has been a problem the past several months and has increased in the past few days. If I do anything remotely intensive, the fan starts running which really slows down the laptop to the point where I literally can't do anything. Any solutions? 
 
Thanks 
 
Mod's Edit: System model added to front of Subject line to improve visibility / clarity.
 

A:S41 - Fan constantly running

That is usually caused by the vents that allow air to be drawn over the CPU heat sink being clogged with dust   Once the CPU gets hot, the system will slow down, and eventually just shut down to protect itself from a meltdown.     I would try using a vacuum cleaner hose and a can of computer cleaning air to blow/suck out the dust and see if that helps.     I that still fails, you may have to remove the base cover (see page 34 of the Lenovo S41/U41 Hardware Maintenance Manual) and clean the fan manually.     In rare case the heat sinks fail, or the thermal heatsink compund beween the CPU and the heat sink cracks and fails to transfer heat to the heat sink efficiently, mut most likely you will find the system is full of dust. Lenovo used to have a fan cleaning program in the Lenovo Energy Managment software, but I think it removed it for some reason.    It is supposed to run the fan backwards and forwards at high speed to try to clean the dust, but if it is really plugged, it probably will not work. Good luck. Lenovo S41/U41 S41-35 S41-70 S41-75 U41-70 Hardware Maintenance Manualhttps://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_s41-35_s41-70_s41-75_u41-70_hmm_201503.pdf

It seems I have had some lag of late, and I thought it was due to a loose connection in my CD-RW....but since I have completely removed the CD-RW, as it seemed to stop the lag for a day or so, i continue to get the same thing over again...CPU constantly running resulting in lag

It isnt spyware/or a virus, as I've check into that pretty thoroughly...

To me, it sounds like the CPU is constantly running and is somewhat loud during gaming...causing lag...
Anyone's help would be appreciated?

Hello,Pasting in contextual information from another topic ~ OBHere is a little history.March 30th A Windows problem first became evident as the CPU spiked to 100% and on reboot, Windows would not boot up stating it could be a hardware or software problem. At that time I thought it was the motherboard and had it swapped out because the error I had was different but the symtoms were the same prior to the system not booting.April 6th got the laptop back from HP and put in my HD to boot from. It worked for a day and then the CPU spiking issue was found, only this time with no failure to boot.Since that date I have tried to isolate the issue but to no avail. I have tried various restore dates and images, as well as manipulating the data on the master image (delete WoW before issue is active and reinstall it from scratch). None of it has worked.My latest attempt was to restore from my oldest image available [the other night]. It was left restoring and hasn't been tested yet. I am not sure if the "issue" will be visible on it. I tested one last night 3-4 weeks later (Feb 16th date) and it was but apparently never became active for close to 2 months...End of added material. ~ OBThis is in reference to http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic219056.html and http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/218815/cpu-runs-at-100-constantly/.I have attached the log files that you requested.

A:CPU running at 100% constantly

Hello All,

I wanted to provide an update to this. I blew away the image last night hoping to restore from the factory settings and get it up and running. That worked for about an hour before the symptoms came back. That normally leads me to think that there is something on my home network that is passing a virus along before I can patch windows, but to add further confusion to this topic, the same situation has occurred on my work laptop. Both are HP NC6400. That is the only similarity. The work laptop is running XP and my home machine Vista. I had both machines rebuilt and the work one without ever stepping into my house exhibited the same issue on a fresh build. Is it possible that there is something resident in the BIOS of these machines, or that a Virus screwed up the CPU's?

I've ran malwarebytes, CCleaner, registry cleaner, defrag, and it still runs at 100%, it didn't used to do this, it's happened for at least two months, but it keeps getting worse.

Hi, i just got my Lenovo 501S-14IKB today. Everything is working fine, its super fast in comparison to my old laptop. Only problem is, that the fan seems to run all the time and is making noticable noise. the temperature of the cpu aer all in the range of 20° only the hd was at 34. so normally that are not temperatures where cooling is needed. If i let the notebook idle for 2 min it goes dead silent but starts again even if i just scroll down a homepage. And even if i start programms whicht take more resources, the fan does not get louder. Is there anyway to controll the fan? Help would be really appreciated, Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english

Long story of what's happened so far:

So about a week ago I was on firefox and using google search. I scrolled through the page and my firefox window closed. internet explorer opened for a brief second, it then closed itself, then a program called XP security 2011 downloaded itself and started running a virus scan. I just assumed it was a fake (I've had this sort of thing happen on other computers in the form of Spy Sheiff and something else years before). My internet was hijacked and I couldn't open any page in any browser. So I turned the computer off, ran malwarebytes anti-malware in safemode and it found a few things. I deleted everything that came up and I turned the computer back on in normal mode and I ran into a few other problems.

While the internet now worked, whenever I tried to open (mostly) any other program, it would ask what program I wanted to open it with (the list of the default programs). After a while of searching, I came across a registry fix for it, downloaded it and it worked.

Some point after that though I just ran more scans in Malwarebytes, and whenever I boot the computer normally it runs super slow. I pin pointed this to services.exe using the task manager but from what I read it seems that it's a genuine file that has malware attached to it. It's hogging every bit of CPU that isn't being used by everything else. If I run the computer in safe mode it might run at 80-90% which is definitely better then 100, but it&... Read more

The resulting heat means my laptop sounds like it is trying to take off. I have tried removing .xml files from indexing as has been suggested on my multiple searches. Didn't help at all. Somehow turning off the process if possible is also not a solution in my opinion.

Looking in Event Viewer, I noticed a great many of the following 'Warnings' from the 'Search' source "The protocol host process 8472 did not respond and is being forcibly terminated {filter host process 10000}." The numbers involved change frequently.

Any ideas as to how I can fix this? It's driving me mad. I have attached a screenshot from the process tree area of Process Monitor, it is perhaps relevant.

Can anyone off assistance? I have a dell laptop and a friend of mine was using it over the weekend. This person was accessing 'myspace' and 'myspace im' which I think surfaced this problem. When I started up my computer I got this STOP error: IRQL_NOT_GREATER_OR_EQUAL

So I inserted my windows xp pro OS disc and tried to re-install. Well now, the egg timer is constantly running when I start up the system and when I look at the performance, it's at about 45% when I have nothing running. And sometimes the STOP error comes up at start up.

Hi,

I am running Vista Home Basic. I have good computer knowledge and skills although certainly not an expert. I can't understand why I am constantly getting the low C: memory warning. I store all pictures and music, etc. on a separate hard drive, and I have carefully gone over my program files and uninstalled any that didn't seem worthwhile. I have a 70 gig hard drive which seems like lots and is more than any computer I've owned before. Sometimes it seems that if I delete files, etc. to clear up memory and the next time I come back to my computer I'm out of memory again. I often get the "could not complete back up due to insufficient memory" notice. I'm unclear on what is being backed up and if this is part of the problem.

I have 3 GB of RAM and the Virtual Memory is currently set at 3242 MB

Help!

Hi and welcome to vista forums

WE could use some info on your computer like how much memory you have, but I think you are running low on "virtual memory". Virtual memory or page file is set in the system control panel>advanced settings. Dependant on the amount of RAM you have it should be set for between 1 and 2 times the amount of ram. If you run out of RAM more and more things are stored in the page file untill it too is out of space. thats when y ou get the low memory warning.

If you like I can walk you thru the settings and where to change them, just tell us how much ram you have.

Virtual Memory Paging File - Change

hope this helps

I am using a HP Pavilion dv6 with an Intel i7-2630 QM, 6 GB RAM and AMD Radeon 6770M GPU (along with Intel Graphics Card). In the past few days, anytime I open a program, such as Mozilla, Chrome, Spotify, the computer's fans kick on. This has never happened in the past. Usually I have to run a video through the browser or play a game for the fans to turn on. The fan turns on when on AC power and when on battery. When this happens, the CPU usage is around 5-7% with 40-50% RAM usage (no change from the past). I am not sure why all of the sudden the laptop's fans are turning on. I have looked at the processes and do not see anything out of the norm and the average temp of the CPU's is about 51-54 C. I have not installed any new software in the past several months. Any input or ideas about why this may be happening would be greatly appreciated. I use Process Explorer and Core Temp to monitor my computer as well as Norton 360 as antivirus software. Thanks.

Older Fujitsu Lifebook N series notebook with Vista. Recently fans (2) both seem to operate at top speed as soon as the computer boots up, even from a cold start. Tried installing speedfan but it triggered a BSOD when scanning the hardware every time I tried to use it. Then tried Core Temp, that wouldn't install either. No BSOD, said something was blocking it, but I disabled Adaware and AVG. Laptop appears to operate normally except for the fan noise. Attached the hijackthis files. TIA.

ps...should have mentioned I took it apart, cleaned the fans (not that dirty), and re-pasted the CPU and heat sink.

Hello! my old computer's HD is Running constantly. i cant get it to stop work. is it a hardware problem or software? and how can i solve it? thanks for your help

A:My Harddrive is running constantly

There's quite a few things that can have that effect. Let's start simple and work up.

How old is the hard drive?

I would check the overall space of the hard drive, good practice to have at least 20% free. The HD may also be fragmented, you can check the status of both of these from the disk defragment application. If the HD space is lower then 20%, you may want to delete temporary files from Disk cleanup.

Next I would check the RAM and Virtual memory amount, it depends on what system your running, but a good baseline is anywhere from 2gb to 4gb of ram, and 1.5x your current ram amount = virtual memory. You can confirm these from the Task Manager, under the Performance tab.

If those come up clean and fine, you may want to do a quick virus scan. I personally recommend Malwarebytes, you can find the most current version from their website at Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware download

Over the last couple of weeks I have noticed that my notebook PC (DELL Inspiron 700m) hard drive has been running more or less 100% of the time the machine has been powered on. Task Mgr/Processes indicate that "msiexec.exe" is running at 99 and CPU usage is at 98-100%.
At the same time, I have also had several incidents of "about:blank" pages in IE (6.0) opeing themselves automatically. During a 30 minute period last night a total of 8 pages opened (I had 8 IE windows opened automatically).

1) are these two issues related?

2) I have checked that "Windows Installer" in Systems is set to "Manual".

3) I also try to turn off the msiexec.exe in "Processes", but it turns it self on within seconds again.

4) I have run multiple spyware software applications trying to find and delete the cause of the "about:blank" problem, which I think is a browser hijack, but to no use. I've run Webroot's "SpySweeper", SpyCatcher and F-Secure's "BlackLight" and Trend-Micro's online "HouseCall". Each of them found malware, but didn't solve the problem.

5) I am using Microsoft OneCare with Defender as my antivirus and malware protection.

I'm at a loss and unless someone has a solution I don't see any other way but to reformat in order to solve the problem.

Please help, someone.

My fan has recently started running almost constantly and loud. I have gone into msconfig and gotten rid of everything that doesn't need to run. The computer will do this when stationary with fan area hanging off of table exposed. When I sleep it or shut it, the light on the exterior of the computer (that says hp) stays on and the fan runs on high. I don't believe there is dirt in there. Around the same time, I noticed number lock and the keypad on the side stopped working.

could part of this be that I have never replaced the battery?

What else could it be?

I have run every spyware program known to man (malwarebytes, superantispyware, etc)

Thanks in advance

Have slight problem. Want to set upone of my own photos as desktop background.
Have a couple of my own photos saved in My Pictures, under My Documents.
Worked briefly. Now, when I boot up, my A drive runs constantly, until system comes
up completely. But, as soon as I click on anything on desk top, A drive starts running
again, apparently searching for needed background file?
How/where do I save my own photos for desktop background so that A drive isn't running all the time?

I'm running a Gateway 1GHz, 40GB HD, CDRW, Iomega Zip drive and Windows ME.
If I keep a Zip disk in, with photo I want on it, Drive A is quiet.
Problem began when I tried to change desktop background.

Appreciate any information!!

Hi , i recently upgraded my laptops hard drive to a Samsung 840 evo 500GB SSD. Whilst i've noticed a massive improvement in performance there is one little annoyance , the fans on my laptop are constantly going on and off is there a way to combat this and is this a common problem ?

A:installed SSD fan running constantly

Hi Bibbster,

Not a common problem no, if anything after fitting a SSD the fans should come on less as a SSD gives off no heat at all compared to a regular spinner.

Did any bios settings change when you installed it? I would have a look in the bios to see if there are any settings for fans etc.

I just received a new HP 22-b052 AIO yesterday and as soon as I started it up, I could hear the fan on the left side (or right side from the back) constantly running. The sound from far away is unnoticeable but when I'm in front of it, it is loud. Is this normal for HP AIO (All in One)? I called HP tech support and spent hours recovering and reinstalling BIOS, running hardware tests but to no avail.  Also, could I replace the fan? Is this PC customizable, would I be able to switch out the mobo and CPU (and of course fan)?

I just bought a new toshiba pc i got it last thursday and when im just sitting at the desktop the fan just kicks into high gear constantly running and making noise and then after a few minutes it stops but it also starts back up making the same annoying noise minutes later is the fan suppose to be working so constantly? And the cpu temperature is constantly at 30 degrees or higher is that normal? even when i turn on the pc after its been off for a few hours its still in between the same temperature range that i mentioned earlier. also for example on this pc if i have firefox open and i have photoshop open or any other programs the screen brightness changes slightly dimmer when i switch from one program to another on its own. Im not sure should i take it back im thinking about doing that i cant take the annoying fan and the automatic switching of the screen brightness upon switching application windows is a little strange.

A constatly running fan usually means overheating or a defective fan. You said 30C or higher. The higher is the imporant part, as 30 is not too high

Hello!

I have something that is constantly running on my laptop. I've been reading here for several days and have done the following but still something running. Every time I click on a button try to open something, i get see a (Not Responding) message in the title bar; i wait, and sometime wait & wait, then eventually it opens.

So here's what I've done so far... uninstalled McAfee, I donwloaded & ran MPCR.exe twice, I installed Microsoft Security Essentials (ran a full scan, found nothing). I also uninstalled LOTS of unused software, went to the msconfig startup tab & unchecked things I knew I didn't need to be started automatically.

I use the Callnote app, but does it really need to be taking 15% of my CPU even when I'm not using CallNote to record a Skype conversation?

i'm really struggling to get to the bottom of my suddenly slower Sony Vaio notebook computer running XP. i've run virus scans, spyware scans, etc. and nothing comes up. when i google looking for problems, i get links to nothing that helps (including 5 year old forum postings about a similar problem).

using the Process Explorer, i've determined that it's the netsvcs portion of svchost that is constantly fluctuating (and it's kernel.dll portions) between 5% and 35% no matter what i'm doing with the computer. turning off Windows Automatic Updates has made no difference. the only thing that works is using the process explorer to kill the netsvcs process - but that's killing the symptom, not fixing the problem.

why is netsvcs constantly running? HOW DO I GET IT TO STOP USING SO MUCH OF MY CPU SO THAT THE COMPUTER WILL JUST RUN NORMALLY???

i can post more info if you tell me what else you need. thanks for all your help!

Hi there!
I just reverted back to Windows 7 after Windows 10 was sneakily loaded onto my system as a "recommended update" (not cool, BTW, Microsoft). I have an older system, and I know after scanning my Dell on the Drivers site, it was not recommended to keep Windows 10.
Well, now my power fan constantly runs. I've disabled/uninstalled/removed EVERYTHING I can find that's not essential to the system. My CPU usage is a low 4% or LESS at all times, yet the fan runs like mad. It's running right now ... and I'm only using Firefox. <sigh>
Any and all advice would be helpful. Note: I'm not a HUGELY computer-literate person. I know how to disconnect the wires, open the back, blow out all the dust. That's about it. Removing components is not an option. I'm just wondering if there's any "hidden" *** that might have been tinkered with due to the (imo, ILLEGAL) installation of Windows 10 and the subsequent downgrading to Windows 7 (which was great!).
Also, I run/ran some pretty CPU-heavy programs (WoW, Guild Wars 2, Elder Scrolls), and the fan NEVER ran the way it does now. I feel like that's saying something.
Many thanks!MissSea :)

the fan on my power supply for my desktop is constantly running. I took it to the geek squad before and they replaced it. when i brought it home and hooked it up the fan constantly runs on the power supply. does that mean they stuck the wrong one in. or is the one they claim to have stuck in bad. oh and the only reason i went to the geek squad was my pc was under warranty.

Background ads sounds keep running on my laptop. The ads start about a minute after windows starts and keep running, sometimes even two, three or four ad sounds run simultaneously.

Hello,

I am now experiencing problems with my PC after 7/8 years.
Each time I switch it on the fan is running really loud; followed by two clicks and after that the power light on the monitor turns from solid green to solid amber and on the screen it comes up with no signal.
The base unit always has a solid green light.

I carried out a power supply test and the light on the back had a solid green light so that is working fine.
Checked the fans and they are working fine.

I have cleaned it thoroughly with the appropriate spray, opened it up and cleaned out the heat sink and even cleaned off the thermo paste and added a fresh batch.

Guess what!! It did not make one difference.

Is it anything to do with the video mode? Before this problem started I was checking to see if the second VGA slot was enabled and plugged it in and found that it wasn't. Each time I switched the cables I always had the machine switched off. When I plugged the VGA cable back in its original slot it was working fine. Next day after this problem cropped up.

Could it be the hard drive as it does make 2 click sounds?

Hi, just a quickie (hopefully).

My laptop, over the last week, has been gradually getting slower and the fans kick in after about ten minutes of use and it's really not liking it if I go on YouTube, the videos play sound fine but the image can't keep up. For the record I use Firefox and other than a good knowledge of navigating myself around my pc to be able to use the Adobe suite, the internet and torrent downloading and other such media uses, I know very little about system technicalities and therefor I am not very good at pc maintainance hence why it's got to this point, I suppose, perhaps there is just too many programs on my pc or files or the fan needs cleaning or I've got viruses or something? Well that's why i'm here I don't really know where to start. I did run CCleaner on it the other day but to no avail.

Sorry for the long post, any help would be much appreciated.

So basically I was browsing around one day and suddenly I started hearing adverts. I couldn't find which page they were coming from so I exited google chrome and it still persisted. I opened task manager and found iexplorer running and tried ending it. The advert stopped making a noise but iexplorer restarted seconds after. The ads don't always play and other symptoms are I can hear the link clicking noise that internet explorer makes occasionally. One other symptom is it seems to mute all WAVE sounds every 5 or so minutes.

Things I've tried are: Upating to IE8 (has stopped the ads). System restore (temporarily stopped it). Malaware anti bytes scan found nothing. Spybot only found cookies. K7AntiVirus found something and deleted it but nothing changed (I'm assuming what it found was something else). I've done two scans with K7 and Malaware anti bytes and found nothing since but the problem persists.

I'm running on Windows XP

Hello,The day before Bios 1.31 release, i started my p50 from cold state and, 5 min later, (and since)  fan started running at full speed, without any load.I tried everything i could imagine: updated Bios the next day, changing power schemes, reinstall all lenovo software (which i removed because i don't need) and execute hardware tests (all OK), ran windows last updates, check with SpeedFan - temperatures stay cold (36 degrees and below on all devices) and NO data for fan speed. Fan doesn't stop even for a minute. Last try before posting here was to reset the CMOS battery (unplug and plug) and even this didn't help.I suspect it has something to do with Nvidia rather than the cpu, as the only time fan stops for a little is when i unplug my external display (on the mini dp port) AND the power supply. But then it starts again after a while.Air getting out of the machine is cold freezing (if system is idle), and restart doesnt affect it. Actually it spins hard even in bios. If it is shut down, and power on, it doesnt spin until it gets 5 min of running.I build a system for professional audio stream, which can be tricky on win 10 (i.e. CAS latencies/nvidia drivers) and i was getting very good results until getting this issue. One thing is that it's very annoying noise, especialy for audio work, but what concerns me even more is that constant full speed fan may damage fan hardware over time? What worries me even more, is that this issue came from nothing, no ne... Read more

My computer's hard drive seems to almost continually be in use. Soemtimes it is frenetic, while at other times the activity is slower, but constant. This can't be good for the drive, and it is clearly slowing down my pc. Even web browsing is slowed by this condition.

The activity continues unabated even if I haven't touched the keyborad or the mouse for hours. Rarely is the hard drive quiet.

I have pasted my system information from Belarc below, but will certainly provide whatever else is required.

I get a lot of "not responding" in various windows and find CPU usage almost always at 100%. Even with no apps running. The Processes tab in Task Manager shows various processes running but 00 for most of them in the CPU usage column. One or two processes will show 02 in that column, but I don't know how to find out what is using 100% of my CPU.

Hi Joyce,

Have you ticked "Show Processes From All Users" at the bottom of the Windows Task Manager "Processes" screen? That will show you more processes, and possibly what is eating up your CPU.

I saw other threads on this issue, but their solutions do not work in my case. I have iexplorer.exe start up automatically and constantly running in the background, while consuming a lot of capacity. I have uninstalled the real internet explorer, but in vein. There is a folder created with iexplorer.exe. I can not delete the file and when I rename it, a similar file is created during the next boot.

Spybot and Ad-Aware do not find anything.

After trying everything within my competence, I solved this by reverting to an image of the boot disk I made well before the problem started.

iexplorer (or whatever it is) does not run in the background anymore and the annoying pop up ads disappeared.

It works, but I would still be interested to know how to solve this if I would not have had a back up of the boot disk.

A:Satellite C855-141 - fan is running constantly

Hi

From my knowledge the fan activity depends on notebook usage and everything is controlled by fan table which is stored in the BIOS.
The fan table contains information how the cooling module has to run in different situations.

While gaming, the CPU and GPU produce more warmness and this need to be cooled down. Therefore the cooling fan has to rotate faster.
But I?m wondering why the fan does not run slower after the game has been closed.

However, I would recommend you to disconnect the AC adaptor and to remove the battery and to press and hold the power button (30 sec would be good enough)
Then power up the unit, access the BIOS and set it to default, save the change and reboot the notebook.

Furthermore I would recommend you to check the windows power plan settings.
In advanced settings it?s possible to change the cooling mode as well as the max CPU performance.

A:Hard Drive Running Constantly

Hello GreenKeyHomes and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I do not see any signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.

My guess is that either Windows Defender or Norton is doing a scan, thus the hard drive activity. If interupted, then it will simply restart when the system is rebooted. I would suggest that you post a question in the XP forum and let them do a little deeper analysis of what process is utilizing the CPU and taking up the bulk of the system resources at the time of the hard drive activity.

Cheers.

I've scrubbed for spyware, viruses and defragged. Now running Win XP SP2, 1 GB RAM, P4 3GHz CPU with Kerio Personal Firewall, NOD 32 and Sunbelt SpySweeper.

FWIW, the drive runs constantly, even at the DOS screen before loading Win XP Safe Mode (keeps running in Safe Mode); also runs at normal WinXP logon screen before entering password.

Odd thing, it seems to run apps comfortably fast. The CPU load seems quite low. I just can't figure out why the drive runs all the time. I've looked at the data from Sysinternals Filemon - virtually all the activity is the E: drive (SATA drive described above).

Any thoughts?

There are various Windows maintenance processes that run whenever other aps are not consuming all the resources so a constantly running HD is normal.

Hello,The day before Bios 1.31 release, i started my p50 from cold state and, 5 min later, (and since)  fan started running at full speed, without any load.I tried everything i could imagine: updated Bios the next day, changing power schemes, reinstall all lenovo software (which i removed because i don't need) and execute hardware tests (all OK), ran windows last updates, check with SpeedFan - temperatures stay cold (36 degrees and below on all devices) and NO data for fan speed. Fan doesn't stop even for a minute. Last try before posting here was to reset the CMOS battery (unplug and plug) and even this didn't help.I suspect it has something to do with Nvidia rather than the cpu, as the only time fan stops for a little is when i unplug my external display (on the mini dp port) AND the power supply. But then it starts again after a while.Air getting out of the machine is cold freezing (if system is idle), and restart doesnt affect it. Actually it spins hard even in bios. If it is shut down, and power on, it doesnt spin until it gets 5 min of running.I build a system for professional audio stream, which can be tricky on win 10 (i.e. CAS latencies/nvidia drivers) and i was getting very good results until getting this issue. One thing is that it's very annoying noise, especialy for audio work, but what concerns me even more is that constant full speed fan may damage fan hardware over time?

I turned my laptop on this morning and the fan will not stop running. It is quite loud and turns on as soon as you hit the power button and never revs down. I have tried Battery Saving and Balanced mode. I have run several diffferent diagnostics through the Lenovo app and made sure my Window was up-to-date. I also used the Lenovo app to try and blow any dust from the vents. The laptop is not over heated or working overly hard. Any ideas on how to make it stop? It has been working for the past several weeks (it was purchased at the beginning of February) without this fan noise.As it sits right now, the CPU is at 5%, Memory is at 39%, and the disk is showing to be at 0%.

Greetings all. Ive been having an issue with my PC and im hoping for some help.

This is a computer i built, and its been marvelous. It has a Core2Quad 2.4ghz, 4gb 667mhz ram and a 500gb Hdd.

My problem has been that the hard drive wont stop read/writing. Even after its been left alone over night, and for hours on end, ill look at it and it'll still be active. Its also extremely sluggish, even after a clean install of W7, which i know is because of the hard drive.

Im wondering if i can get a second, third or fouth opinion... but im thinking that the HDD might be bad and its time for a new one. Ive tried reinstalling windows, and its still slow to load, and take for-freaking-ever to boot.

Thank you for any assistance.

Hey All

I'm new here but after spending most of today searching the net I was impressed by the activity here. I don't know if this is the correct forum... but the XP forum hasn't been used in over a week.

I'm running Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 (build 2600) on a 2.4Ghz P4.

A couple of days ago I noticed a lot of HD activity... I thought it was another update being DL'd and didn't worry about it until I noticed that it was still happening when I was offline... in fact it ran all night constantly lighting the HD led. I read that some leds are "more sensitive" and that it could be normal Windows activity. I've had this machine 3 years and it isn't "normal".

I ran DiskMon and verified that there is almost constant writing going on. I noticed in task manager that winlogon is running constantly and at high overhead. I verified with Process Explorer that winlogon is from the system32 folder. Of course... the two conditions may not be related...

I run McAfee Virus Scan, Webroot Spysweeper, and StopZilla all the time. I use Mozilla almost exclusively... rarely MSN9's browzer... and almost never run IE (although MSN 9 is a glorified front end for it). I run AdAware SE from time to time (I'm scanning now)... and today I have even ran Spyware Doctor.

Hello,
I have a Dell Inspiron laptop. I was running Vista and about 2 weeks ago I decided to upgrade to Windows 7. After the upgrade, things worked beautifully, but a few days ago my hard drive began running constantly and still is. Whether I leave it alone or am working on it does not seem to matter, yet system performance seems unaffected by it.

I am a novice computer user so straight forward instructions or explanations are more than welcome.

Thanks.

New to these forums, so forgive me if I don't know all the formalities.

At random times all of my computer's actions take exceptionally longer than normal; boot up takes 3 or so minutes, a crackling noise and freezing occur when playing games/videos and the task manager shows a 50% CPU usage, even when nothing is going on. I regularly scan with MalwareBytes and avast!.

On a previous occasion, I removed the case cover and booted up and everything was fine, but I think it might have just been a fluke. For the sake of fixing this problem however, let's not rule out overheating.

I currently have 4GB of DDR3 RAM and when I run most applications - mainly games it will automatically tab out of the game after about 2 minutes and tell me windows is low on memory and to close the application.

I have attatched a screenshot showing my task manager processes showing that there is 0 free physical memory with nothing running. I have tried re-installing windows which didnt help.

Any ideas?

A:Windows constantly running out of memory

However you do have 72 services running. Open Task manager again and click the second tab at the top labeled, processes. Here you can see the file that is running and how much CPU and Ram cycles it's munching.
Right click any that are very high memory users and end process.
Some things are critical and your puter might fall over, don't worry you have only stopped them during the current session, just restart.

When you find any high users post back and we'll set about disabling them or setting so they only run when you say so.

make sure Turbo is not enabled on cpu since when thats enabled it will make cpu work around 100% - 120% so then fan is constantly on even at idle so yeah if you disable turbo it should make fan more silent.

Dear Forum Members,
Through the absolute cheapness of Microsoft, my uni only provided me w/ an update copy of W7 that I had to install over a full version of Vista. I have 1.5gb of ram and have turned all the options down for performance (e.g. looks like Windows XP.lol) and have a 7200rpm WD HD.
Here is the thing. I did a test install on my old drive (5400rpm) that was running XP Pro. W7 ran smoothly and the fan hardly ever kicked on as I do minimal tasks and have a stepped processor. When I did a clean install on the 7200rpm drive, everything was also fine. However, as I couldn't register my upgrade copy I had to install over Vista. This is where the problems started.
The computer is noticeably slower than when I did the clean install. Also problematic is that the fan seems to constantly run even when the computer is performing no task, not even word processing or internet surfing. I do not care about the noise (in XP it just used to kick on real loud every now and again), I just want to make sure that my hd/cpu isn't getting fried. It seems to indicate a problem.

Any suggestions?

Please help me figure out what this is. Sometimes the hard drive just starts running and stays running for a couple of hours. This makes my laptop unuseable. I figured it was a program running but the taskmanager shows no applications running or processes that are causing this. One time when this happened I got a message all of a sudden that said Operating System Not Found. Shut down with power button and restarted. On restart the windows fixer came up which I used but no problems were found. Any help would be appreciated. Let me know if I can provide more info that may help solve. Ran hijackthis the last time it happened... took awhile but here is the log.Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 12:18:20 AM, on 9/19/2010Platform: Unknown Windows (WinNT 6.01.3504)MSIE: Internet Explorer v8.00 (8.00.7600.16385)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\Program Files (x86)\Norton Security Suite\Engine\3.8.0.41\ccSvcHst.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Intel Matrix Storage Manager\IAAnotif.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Google\GoogleToolbarNotifier\GoogleToolbarNotifier.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Sony\ISB Utility\ISBMgr.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Sony\PMB\PMBVolumeWatcher.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Sony Shared\SOHLib\SHTtray.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Java\Java Update\jusched.exeC:\Program Files (x...

Hoping to get some guidance with an issue I am working on with a friends laptop. I was asked to clear adware as it was affecting performance of the laptop and also fix an issue with Windows installer.

The Adware was pretty easy to get rid of completely but the issue with the installer is proving to be a real stinker. It seems anytime a Microsoft application is launched, Windows Explorer, MS Word, IE Explorer the installer launches briefly then disappears.

Checking the event log shows an Event ID 1001: Detection of product '{91CA09409-6000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9}', feature 'HandWritingFiles' failed during request for component '{456D1A62-*DC1F-45C2-910F-FCDB0DCE4562}

I've done a bunch of looking around and can already state the users all have correct permissions per Microsoft support article, KB911682. I'm at a loss on this one.

Also all the shortcuts for Office 2003 are not operating properly and trying to execute repair from the application results in an error indicating the action cannot be performed because the application is not installed. I can confirm Microsoft Office IS installed properly. The only way to launch the app is to do so by double clicking winword.exe directly.

Any thoughts? Appreciate the help!!
 

A:Windows installer constantly running

Follow up question to hopefully get someone engaged.

Would it be better to uninstall and reinstall office 2003 or remove and reinstall the windows installer??
