I have several new Dell PC's running XP professional. None of them seem to
be able to have any one task exceed 50% processer uasge. Is there some
setting that limits usage?

More about : full processer usage

No..
What are you doing that wyou would expect this to happen?
Go here:

Get "HeavyLoad 2.0" and run it on a system.. Have Task Manager up - if you
do not hit 100% - then come back and report it to us.. Otherwise - nice
systems.

Why would you want the CPU to run at 100% usage on one program??
You couldn't run anything includuing Windows background maintainance
procedures that are necessary for Windows to run?
The lower the CPU Usage percentage is the better performance you will have.
