You know when your computer is just sitting there loading...
I'm not doing a goddamn thing with it, you know. Firefox, with 3 tabs open, is the only window I have open. And the computer is just sitting there constantly loading, making that loudass fucking loading noise that they all make. And it says there are no processes working it, it is using 2% of the CPU.

What the unholy fuck is it doing? I hate that noise. God I hate that noise. And it just doesn't stop.

Sometimes its doing scheduled tasks. Some software could be looking for updates. Theres lots of reasons. Its only when it stops loading whatever its loading and the next time you reboot and have some type of problem is the time to be pissed lol

Re: You know when your computer is just sitting there loading...
I've never heard noises when it's loading, or recall them. But this evening I was reading one of the serious threads, a Ukraine topic, and the pages started flipping. Then started hearing a lot of sounds, strange at that.I had to get out, finally shut the computer down at the wall. Computer seems fine now, I don't know what happened. But it really freaked me out at the time. Lol, my first thought was it was someone from the government. Nah, that wouldn't happen....

Re: You know when your computer is just sitting there loading...
I just want to know what that light on the desktop means when it is flashing and it makes that noise. Because it is clearly not the CPU...

How do I even find out what activities it is up to? Ctrl+Alt+Del gives me nothing useful.

I closed everything and restarted, and it is still just sitting here CONSTANTLY sputtering away at some unknown task.

Even better than task manager, Mark Russinovich's process explorer:

I use Linux, and my HD spins constantly. I wonder if it hasn't been hijacked by some bitcoin miner and they're using my machine to mine.

I'm going to update my Linux and use a SSD so i won't have to listen to that shit.

Replace the hard drive with a SSD disk. They are cheap now. And MUCH faster and silent. Your computer will gain a new life.

if its got a flashy light on the front and makes a noise, its probly the hard disk getting read. there is a progarm called "resource monitor" yu could open in windows and then set it to look at hard disks to see if it is the hard disk being read. or in linux just run the iostat program

iostat -h /dev/sda 5

Windows task manager is unreliable.

If you want to see what's really running on your computer, you need a 3rd party tool that reliably lists all the processes and threads and their parents, too.
