    Task Manager CPU and Performance tab stuck


    hi

    I don't know what's going on but on one of my comps i have all tasks under Processes of Task Manager stuck at % and CPU usage, nothing is moving, it seems that data has stopped coming by.

    Does anyone have an idea of what's going on? PC is fast and snappy as usual but this is just weird.

    First i saw Task Manager stuck at 30% then another time 40% now everything is really stuck. doesn't matter what i launch, it just doesn't update.

    Also if i change power plan where it would normally go to 1ghz in balanced, it doesn't update the frequency.

    Only thing i did earlier was updating my Asus system software.

    Edition Windows 10 HomeVersion 21H2OS build 19044.1682Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.4170.0

    Btw also the other sections, HDD usage, Wifi usage, etc it's all stuck, i just launched a speed test and it's all at zero and flat graphs.

    any ideas?

    thanks,
    Gabrio

    Lets do the basic:
    Open a CMD window as administrator and type:
    chkdsk c: /f
    It will say your disk is in use and ask if you want to schedule to next start = yes
    Restart
    Pay attention on the results, specially bad blocks, bad clusters, bad sectors etc

    Back to Windows, open a CMD window as administrator and type:
    sfc /scannow

    If it finds any corrupted files, fixing or not, reboot and run again

    Then run
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
    and
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Gabrio,

    I also found mine paused at reportedly high levels of usage once.
    Like you, I did not believe the high load & lack of variation in parameters so I nosed around.
    Like you, unpausing it allowed everything to start showing up normally again.
    Like you, I never took any action to pause it and never worked out how it had happened.

    All the best,
    Denis
