I've just recently bought a new HP laptop running Windows 10 for my mother with 8GB of RAM, and an AMD a9 9420 Radeon R5 processor and while setting it up I noticed it was running unusually slow. I checked task manager and saw that my disk usage was at 100% constantly. This is not a problem that is new to me however, I encountered it before and the fix was simple. For this laptop, no fix has done the trick. I've temporarily disabled my anti-virus, I temporarily disabled Windows Search, I disabled the superfetch service on the recommendation of a friend, I uninstalled Skype and made sure chrome prefetching option was unticked, I disabled notifications and tips in windows, and I made sure to check and resolve PCI-Express Firmware Bug and I even *REINSTALLED WINDOWS*. Nothing worked, not even after the fresh install and now I am at a complete block and loss of what to do. At this point the laptop is unusable it runs so slow. Should I return the laptop? Could it be a hardware issue possibly that is unfixable? Is there another fix hiding in plain sight that I haven't seen? Any help at this point would be amazing.
