I'm having a very perplexing problem with my system. As I mantioned in the title, when I play Freecell, Spider or Minesweeper, I see the CPU usage go way up and the game becomes very slow in responding. I am running a CPU meeter and it sometimes goes all the way to 100% usage.
I find this hard to believe since I have a dual core Q6400, a GeForce 8800GTS, and 3GB RAM. Also I can play Oblivion with fairly high settings without any performance problems.
I'm at a bit of a loss on how to troubleshoot this one. Any suggestions?
Oh, forgot to mention that I have been having this problem for a while and it seems to be getting worse. I've been upgrading my video card drivers
in an attempt to fix things, but to no avail.
Any help is appreciated! TIA!
