i do not use any other preipherals.
i am having a problem which i think is very common but still very rare to figure out.
Recently i checked my task manager , in performance tab i see that the cpu usage is very high .
i tried ending some processess and still the same.
so i closed evrything , even the startup programs and no services except from microsoft.
but still the cpu usage was 20%.
i check processess , system idle is 99.
then i checked resource monitor , system interupts dfcs using 20 cpu cycles constantly.
i got through a lot of forums and some articles here also but none of the solutions worked .
tried a clean boot with no start up programs or services , still the problem persists.
update all the drivers to latest.
tried disabling usb ports , lan, audio , floppy , cd rom , nothing worked.
ram is fine as i tested it recently , i did the swap with 1 gig and 2 gig. same thing.
check chkdsk for hdd , no errors.
did defragmentation and used malware bytes for spyware , but no results.
opened my case , and re fit evrything but no use.
cpu tem is 35-38 idle.
system temp is 40 .
gpu is also normal temp.
what else can i test ???
i even did the dfc test with a software , no errors.
used process explorer , but it shows also system interupts.
what do i do now...???
i recently got the video card and the reapplied the thermal paste .
finally I solved my problem...
Here is what I did...
I installed windows 8 in dual boot..
and when log on to windows 8 ....I checked the task manager and cpu utilization was already 0 %......so happy to see that....
which clearly means that the problem was with the windows 7 system files or something./..
my hardware is all fine...finally I gotta just reinstall windows 7 ...that's it...
