Not showing high usage there, I still reccomend you scan for malware. Your CPU is very good and not a bottleneck.

That doesn't seem normal at all. My 2nd Gen i7-2670QM mobile CPU @ 2.2 GHz only uses 25% CPU on average with 5 1080p videos, 9 browser tabs and Windows 8/Server 2012 2 GB RAM Virtual Machine running all at the same time.

Can you check your power plan setting? Maybe Windows is running in Power Saver mode thus making your CPU run at minimum frequency and having a very high CPU usage while doing CPU intensive tasks.

I reccomend you run a scan and run malware too.

Dude, from the screenshot you posted, your 5 YouTube videos are not running in 1080p. That's why your CPU usage is at minimum. You have to switch all your 5 videos to 1080p using the gear button then look at your CPU usage.

I need some more coffee but I'm researching an method to try and help you. scroll down on the task manager and take a screen with whatever is using the most cpu

And did you check the powerplan like listed earlier by theveterans?

wilworrior If you are using the stock Intel CPU cooler I will bet money it is overheating playing intensive games. What else do you have running?

Britton30, I thought that too, but he said it only goes to about 55C while gaming. Could it be antivirus running a scan maybe? Thats why I hope he shows the screen with what is taking the cpu usage so high.

Typing resmon in the start search, hit enter, and going to the CPU tab will get a clearer idea of what is running, also how the RAM is being used in Memory tab.
