WD5000LPLX Problems

I have 10 HP 445 G6 laptops and all are having disk issues with WD5000LPLX-60ZNTT2. No matter what is running, disk is always struggling on or about 100%. At this time, it appears the disk just stinks. I cannot find any drivers separate from the ones with Windows. Running Windows 10 21H2 at this point. We are so frustrated. Anyone have any suggestions. We have watching resource monitor, stripped everything down the base OS, etc. the disk performance on this systems is just awful. Anyone have any ideas??? Thanks.

Have you thought about replacing them with 500GB SSDs?

I am trying to avoid the expense. I just cannot bring myself to believe that these disks are this bad.
