Hey, since a few months, every now and then my computer will hang for 10-30 seconds before I can continue working. I thought at first it was a problem with windows so I formatted the drive and reinstalled windows from scratch. The problem continued. I just installed some monitoring software and saw that the HDD seek time is very high (between 50 and 300). I thought that the hard drive was failing and cloned the content to another HDD which I used to replace the first one. Same thing is happening. What else might make the HDD seek time to go so high? Note that I did not change anything else in term of hardware in the last 2 years and it was working perfectly fine 6 months ago.. Some piece of hardware may have a problem but I am now at lost trying to figure our what.
