Well when I run like relatively simple applications it goes straight to 100% same with the older games. Also CTRL Atl Del then click task manager... Cpu goes to 100%. Its just strange. Videos take me to 70% and more
I'm going to venture here that you may want to clean the computer out - I ran into a similar issue not too long ago where heat was the problem. Also, the use of a driver sweeper program may prove to be helpful.
Yeah I completely took the computer apart about a 2 weeks ago after 5 years of use. Cleaned it out really good, broke the stupid heatsink... Eyes are bad so I didn't see the arrow telling me to twist the pegs out... Had to replace it with a new heatsink....
I am curious as to what freeware you would recommend for a driver sweeper.
