Hello, my CPU usage can be under 10% but HDD light is active and stuck on, I have virus scanned my PC multiple times, but the problem is still not resolved, I am thinking about re-installing windows, could this be a permenant fix?
However when I first installed windows 7, There was a harddrive error, but nothing seemed to be effected by this
I don't care how old this thread is, I just had to say thank you to Nukemaster. I've been looking for a solution to this problem for a while and I just couldn't work it out. Then he said "If the system has trouble seeing the hard drive" then it will cause problems. Then it occurred to me I had several virtual drives run through MagicDisc mounted, and sure enough removing them was the cure!
