ive noticed when i have pretty much nothing going my cpu usage is around 70-80% , when i open winamp and play a mp3 it drops to 17%. im using Mpower to show me my cpu usage which can be found @ mindbeat.com. the cpu is a 1100mhz tbird and its on a asus a7v133.
im wondering why its like that?
It's not system resources that was his concern, it was his Kernel Processor Usage. (Go to Start Menu > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Monitor) There should be a graph "Kernel: Processor Usage". For d00d, he's using another program, and it's still saying that his usage is high even though he's barely doing anything.

Thanks for the help guys.
i tried system monitor and it showed me the same as what mpower was showing me and it also showed the cpu usage drop when i played a mp3.
its not a big deal , the system is stable and i only use it for playing games i was just wondering about that.
