Windows 7: AMD Phenom II X4 955 drivers corupt?

AMD Phenom II X4 955 drivers corupt?


At some point maybe trough windows update or other such event my processor drivers have been corrupted. My hard hard drive is constantly writing data at processor folder on windows as can be seen on attached screenshot of resource control panel. This takes up considerable amount of procressing power too. On the whole whole system is sloved down a lot. What can I do at this point to fix this? I haven't found any newer drivers from internet as haven't windows either. Disabling current drivers doesn't seem like great idea either.

Problem arised in updating to service pack 1 of windows 7, but I think it has been around for longer as hard drive has spinned at intervals before the update too when there hasn't been any processies going on, but considerably less often.

I could allways be wrong about the cause as I have two Radeon 5500 graphics cards on system but as I updated those drivers today to no avail, so I doupt it. Offcorse it could be million other things too but hard drive writing really suggests processor drivers.

So is there any new drivers coming or how should I go on with this?

That was my message to AMD tech support but thought someone here might help me with this too.

Thanks in advance and feel free to ask additional information if you think it could help solve this thing.

Hello there.

Processors don't have drivers.

Could you upload a Screenshot with the CPU tab in the Resource Monitor? and sort it by CPU (descending) to see which processes are using it. :)

your swap file could be corrupt. I would boot into safe mode and delete pagefile.sys, and then reboot to see if this resolves your issue.

As you can see from screenshot svchost hogs the processor usage:

It goes on in spikes as shown in by graph, following the disk usage spikes:
Top most graph is processor folloved by disk use.

As can also be seen most of the disk use in on some AMD drivers so I would be guessing the fault lies in them somehow or their relation to windows.

@Play2mefish: I disabled the virtual memory to no effect.
