    OK, which specific update is causing this?

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Slow reading disks

    As Oussebon has said, it's CrystalDiskMark I want you to run. That said the SMART data shown above shows nothing wrong with your 'slow' disks. It will be interesting to see what CrystalDiskMark says about them all.....

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST power surge

    I'm no expert on this but I understand from previous posts that this is not uncommon and isn't necessarily a problem.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Slow reading disks

    I think we need some standard measurements here. Please download and install CrystalDiskMark from https://crystalmark.info/en/ and run that on ALL your drives. Post screenshots of each of them please.

    Ah, so the laptop stays asleep but the monitor wakes? In that case check the monitor manual for things that can wake it.....

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Mouse sensitivity issues after windwos update

    Logitech unfortunately have a long history of not playing well with Windows updates, I've avoided Logitech kit for years for that very reason.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Octane 17.3" NVIDIA RTX 2080 - wakes up every minute

    Open a command prompt (or PowerShell) and enter the command powercfg /lastwake, that will show you what most recently woke the laptop. You should check to see whether any devices are allowed to wake the laptop via the powercfg /devicequery wake_armed command. You should also check for any wake...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Buzz/Humms while using certainf Software, it gets weider!

    I think in that case I'd be tempted to call PCS. It might be a hardware problem in the board? Sent using Tapatalk

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Sleeping/Hibernating causes reboot, + wifi issues.

    Windows is configured by default to auto-restart if a 'system failure' occurs. A system failure can be almost anything that can't be recovered. It sounds to me as though something is failing during the sleep process and Windows is auto-restarting. Look in the event log to see whether anything...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST I CANNOT FIND MY WEBCAM OR DVD DRIVE !

    First off, please don't SHOUT. When you reinstalled Windows from where did you source all the drivers?

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Device Disconnect/Connect sounds two or three times a day

    There are a couple of tools that enumerate USB devices, I think the Nirsoft one shows you the date the device was added, the Microsoft one might too. They might help you figure out which one is the cause..? https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/debugger/usbview...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Vortex IV (Clevo P150SM) not running on battery power (and battery not charging)

    I know it's an expense after what you've tried so far but from what you're saying here I think it's terminal. Sorry. :(

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Buzz/Humms while using certainf Software, it gets weider!

    That is interference and nothing to do with Windows. In the early days of hi-fi audio systems (like 50 years ago) mains hum was a major problem and usually caused by earth loops. I suggest you experiment with both the relative location of your laptop and speakers and the actual location in your...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Lafite III 13.3" USB C Issues

    Generally with Windows 10 and laptops the Windows Update process finds and installs all necessary drivers. I would suggest that you download a copy of Windows 10 and do a clean install by booting that installation media. Once Windows is installed run Windows Update repeatedly until no more...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Stutter Issues when running certain programs

    Task Manager isn't the best tool for looking for performance issues, it's sampling intervals are too long. You're much better off using the Resource Monitor - entering resmon in the Run command box is the quickest way to start it. The counters on the section headers will give you an idea of how...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Vortex IV (Clevo P150SM) not running on battery power (and battery not charging)

    First thing I'd do is run a battery report, this link will show you how and tell you how to read the report. Since you've replaced the battery and you know the charger works it does rather sound like either the flaky socket you mention or the battery charging circuits ion the motherboard. The...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Laptop shuts off randomly

    Ouch. That's a disappointment and an expensive one too, but I see no other way that you could confirm that it's not the battery or the charger and they are always the most likely culprits. All that's left then is the charging hardware on the motherboard and as Singularity has already suggested...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Backing up files and or folders - best method

    Personally I would image the drives with something like Macrium Reflect (free). You can mount Reflect image files as virtual drives and access individual files and folders. Imaging protects you against forgetting to backup anything. Although file backup tools work very well they only backup...
