I have an Hp Pavillion dv600 (specific model number is dv6929wm) and a few months back I bought windows ultimate and installed it over 64bit vista. I noticed right away that cpu usage would be extremely high at times but I figured it was just a few driver
issues and things would get sorted out later on.
My problem has only gotten worse in the past few weeks. I have extremely high CPU temps and I'm not sure if it's because of my graphics (NVIDIA GeForce 7150M / nForce 630M) or another driver issue.
Recently i formatted everything and did a clean install of Ultimate only to find that my problem hasn't changed at all. It's frustrating because I'm not understand why some things i could do with EASE and have little to know cpu usage in vista, all of a sudden makes my comp strenuous in windows 7 when it's supposed to be the better OS.
The laptop gets adequate airflow and I have installed speedfan to check. Here is my specs and pics from speedfan and my processes.
