    Hey guys so my issue is that I'm always at 100% disc usage when I'm doing nothing. I have 16gb usable ram but it's not using it .

    hi.
    this may be worrying as you may have a disk failure at hand.
    try this in order and see if it makes a difference.
    go to control pannel then to system then advance system settings click on settings in the performance group then under the advanced page click on change virtual memory uncheck the automatically manage and change the page file for c to no paging.
    as you have 16gb ram you wont need a page file.
    if this doesnt make a difference download CrystalDiskInfo portable from this link.
    https://portableapps.com/redirect/?...table&f=CrystalDiskInfoPortable_7.7.0.paf.exe

    run the setup and it will extract it to the downloads folder.
    then go to the extracted folder and run CrystalDiskInfo.exe
    and if you see anything in yellow or red backup your data asap and take a replacement drive.

    Please provide as much detail about your computer as possible.
    Need to know the, Operating system, motherboard , is it a manufactured computer (like dell) or custom build ; ie exact MB, exact CPU, exact GPU, Monitor cable, exact ram, exact pw supply, etc. Do not post 16gig of ram; post the exact brand and mode/part# do that for ALL of your parts It is recommended that you download and run the http://static.techguy.org/download/SysInfo.exe and include the log produced in your post.

    Have you looked in Task manager to see which service is using so much?
