    Default Hard Drive problem (i guess)

    Hey guys, and whats up ??
    I have a samsung 1TB drive that i store in both OS and my general files on it, but some times the whole computer doesn't respond well as it usually do, even when i open a new tab in Chrome, it takes about 5 sec to start loading or showing the thumbnails of most visiuted websites, the same problem with WMP it take longer than usual to load, i feel that the hard drive goes sleepy or something, is there a solution ?
    i have an I7 870 @ 3.4ghz
    12gigs of ram
    asus hd 6870 directcu
    and a asus p7p55d-evo motherboard

    and thank you

    When was the last time you defragged your drive ? Also how many programs are running at start up ? It would be a good idea to invest in Diskeeper, and set it to auto.

    First,....welcome to PureOC

    Go to control panel and choose Power Options,.....
    Your PC is set to use one of the two preferred power plans. Go to the one it's using and click to "change plan settings"

    Then click on "change advanced Power settings"

    Go to the "hard drive" line and open it. Set it to never turn off.

    If the problem still persists, the cause is elsewhere.

    It's a process.
    You should be using the latest drivers to rule out that possibility.

    The next step would be to determine if there are programs running in the background without your knowledge. They use system resources and slow down your PC. This is a common problem.

    You should install Malwarebytes Antimalware (free version) update it's database and then do a full scan on your PC.

    Afterwards, install Spybot Search And Destroy, (free) update it, and Scan your PC.
