So, my CPU is pretty much always 100% loaded even though nothing resource-consuming is running at the time.
Windows's built in task manager shows nothing. Process Explorer only sees one svchost consuming up to 30% at the time, obviously nothing close to 100%.
The resulting lag is glaringly obvious and horrible - I can barely move my mouse, software takes up to a minute to launch and randomly hangs up on me. Audio lags and skips too.
I have immediately tried to reinstall my chipset drivers
but that did nothing.
Safe mode with network support lags, regular safe mode doesn't.
DPC Latency Checker says my driver
delay is up to 60 000 μsec: for comparison, anything greater than 500 is a problem.
Anyone help? I'm out of options.
