I am encountering a really annoying issue with Windows 7. Whenever I start using a lot of programs simultaneously then the CPU of my laptop will go to 100% and it won't fall back to it's regular value of around 4-10%. Even if I close all the programs and end a few processes, the CPU will stay 100% and my CPU (ofcourse) get's really warm.
When I reboot the system, the problem is still there. It only goes away after a while when the CPU is cooled down, then my system operates normal again but as soon as I start doing something (e.g. yesterday I installed the driver for my videocard,during the installation) the CPU goes to 100% again and the same problem happens.
This problem happend 3 days ago when I was still running windows vista. I had the exact same problem, but in win vista the CPU was 100% everytime I turned on my laptop. This never happend before, so I did a system restore in Vista but the problem was still there. After that I scanned my system with an anti-virus (avast) and anti-spyware (spybot) program and that did not solve my problem. I did some research on the i-net saw that a few people experienced the same problem, but all of them had different reasons that caused the problem and also different solutions. I chose for a clean install of win 7 (I was about to do that anyways). But it didn't help me.
So after performing a clean windows 7 install the problem is still there My CPU goes to 100% and I really don't know how to solve this annoying problem. So is there anybody out there who can help me solve this issue?!? I have a HP Pavillion DV6700 laptop and you can find the specifications: HP Pavilion dv6700 (Core 2 Duo T8300 processor 2.4GHz; 2GB RAM) Specs - Notebooks - CNET Asia
thanks in advance,
