Windows 7: Hard Drive seems always busy, busy, busy

27 Jun 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium x86

Hey guys,

A quick update on this. Issue was solved. Two things were happening at the same time. First, the hard drive was indeed failing. Although all test software I had used said the contrary, I took a chance and bought a new hard drive (the equivalent of what I already had). The computer was a lot more responsive and the constant heavy duty work that was there before was gone. However, there were still a few things that were lagging which came into play when gaming hence I thought graphic card again. I tried a third card (this one brand new) and all problems stopped. It's like a have a new computer again (figuratively speaking of course).

So maybe the 7750 was just too much for this computer...I don't know. The 8400 was a used card and the card that I have in now is a GT630. Obviously not as good as an HD7750 but better than the original card in the computer which died (8600GTS). So I'm a happy camper
