HP EX 490 - CPU gone to 100% for days! RRS feed

  • Question

  • After I started to convert some movies, the WHS started to work with CPU flow rate of 100%. I tried to stop the converting, and it seems like it has stopped. Yet, the WHS has been working on 100% CPU usage for days afterwards. I have installed Mc Afee Total Protection - but it does not seem like it helped. The two HDD are working "full time" - I can hear them working always.

    Please help!

  • high CPU usage and HDDs working hard. I suggest you check if your drives are stuck in PIO-mode instead of DMA...

  • Assuming Bjurran is right, see this support article for a workaround. However, bear in mind that a drive stepping back to PIO mode may be an indication of a hardware problem, so monitor it for at least a couple of weeks to see if it happens again.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
