  1. Is there anything else running in the background? Are you saying that with Chrome the CPU is working at 35% - 50% when you are using the browser, then when you click a link it goes to 100%, then drops back down to 35% - 50% again?

    If that's the case then something is definitely wrong. With my quad core CPU, FireFox uses between 0% - 4% when I am viewing a website. Clicking a link to go to another website the CPU will go to 20% and then drop back down to 0% - 4%. Have you tried using Internet Explorer or another browser (like Firefox)?

    If your CPU spikes only when using Chrome, then uninstall it and re-install a current version. If Internet Explorer does that too, then your Windows OS might be a little unstable or have some type of issues like a bloated Registry that is causing your laptop to be a bit sluggish.

    You can try a free program called CCleaner to help delete junk in the Registry. But if the problem persists, then you may want to consider reinstalling Windows. Backup important data first though.

  2. What CPU do you have?
