Windows 7: CPU Usage and urn On

CPU Usage and urn On

Problem Description: My Computer goes to 100 % cpu usage when playing a game or watching a video on the internet. After a few minutes it goes back to normal and then again shoots back up to 100% cpu usage. I also have just replaced my graphics card with a new one. My computer also turns on by itself at night time. I have windows 7 professional 64 bit and wired mouse and keyboard and my graphics card is nvidia Geforce 9600 gt and my ram is 4 GB and my mother board is Asus M3a78-em and my processor is Amd athlon 64 x2 dual core 6000+
Operating System: Windows 7

If more info is needed please tell me

If I Kill Google Chrome Process because of watching a video and it goes to 100% cpu usage it will say that shockwave player has crashed, but I don't think that's the problem because even when I play games it goes to 100% cpu usage. And sometimes after svchost starts to sky rocket too.

No drivers installed for your audio card. Please install them:
Quote:
Multimedia Audio Controller PCI\VEN_13F6&DEV_0111&SUBSYS_83847284&REV_10\4&2966AB86&0&38A4 The drivers for this device are not installed.
Nothing else stands out from the MSINFO32 report (although there are a lot of errors).
Let's see what happens with the diagnostics and then move on from there.

Not much else that we can do without the hardware tests.
We could reinstall Windows - but you'd need the DVD for that also.

Try running SFC.EXE /SCANNOW from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt - merely because it's the only thing that I can think of that doesn't require your DVD drive.

Ok I'll give that SFC.EXE a go and post back. I also had this problem in my last OS Vista Basic if that helps, maybe a harware problem, oh and I just recently changed my graphics card for another new one the 9600 GT

Since it also happened with Vista, that makes it more likely to be a hardware issue.
Since you've changed your video card, it's probably not your video card that's causing the problem.

Ok I ran SFC.EXE and a Command Prompt thing came out for a second and closed right away. What now?

Have you installed the latest NVidia graphics drivers?

Use option 2 here for an automated scan:
Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers
