If Justin's right, then you should be able to solve the problem by saving less frequently (xtc, edr, cpt, trr). If you're running on a laptop and overwhelming the hard drive bandwidth, then I can almost guarantee you're saving 100x more than you need to for most systems. Unless you have a very specific goal (like kinetics of water), try saving a frame every 100 ps.

There's not much to go on in terms of troubleshooting.  But desktop computers
are not generally built to handle the I/O and computing burden of an MD simulation.
