When i use my usb modem on my hp 620 laptop the cpu runs at 100% all the time. Is there someone who can help me fix this.
If i look under task maneger it is the mobile connect program that does this but it doesnt do that on my pc.

When you say "USB Modem", is this something you plug into a USB port or is there a phone jack right on the notebook itself?

Some laptops have software modems which require a lot of CPU when in use.

uh...he is referring to a USB mobile broadband

it is a USB device that lets you go on the internet but it connects to the internet the way that mobile phones does -- 3G, so it means you can use it virtually anywhere, as if you're using a phone..

But I myself don't know why...I also use USB mobile broadband and it doesn't do that to me..
