Windows 7: CPU 100% in every game

CPU 100% in every game

I mostly play NFS World on my laptop, after very few minutes of gameplay for some reason my CPU stays at 100% all the time until I exit the game and because of that I get very bad performance. Is there anything that stop this from happening? (I am not running anything at the background)

Some games use a lot of resources on laptops. A LOT. What are your laptop specifications?

Try lowering settings like resolution,anti aliasing and shadows ,reflections ect. What ever settings the game has,I know nfs most wanted had some settings like that.

I have everything on the lowest settings, like I said I start the game and I have some good fps but once my CPU reaches 100% my fps can drop to 15fps or even less.

Almost sounds like it could be thermal throttling due to overheating. Have you checked to make sure the cooling vents/fans are open and not full of dust?
