Windows 7: Issues with CPU hit 100%

24 Jan 2010   #11

Windows 7 64 bit build 7600

It might be an issue with the hyperthreading of the core i7. Are there updated drivers for your chipset or processor?

windows 7 Pro x64

yes, i will look at it but it will be a time that i can stay by the machine for a long period of time. i don't like running any machine with out an anti virus and my machine needs to stay connected to the net 80% of the time so i can't disconnect it

When i can i will run that test.

One thing though. i run Avast on my machine, i like the program while my brother runs avg so there is a difference there

next thing, a while back i stated there was something i was watching in the event viewer, well the machine did its little hiccup again a while ago, this time whilst i was playing a game, Eve-online. it was short but i took note of the time and run to the event viewer but this time the event did not correspond with the times, this basically means what ever is happening is not being logged by the event viewer

hmm, the drivers i have in here are the beta drivers. i have not checked lately if there are any new ones out. also windows has not done any updates on those drivers (except for the network one, several times). i'll look into this

I will also head into the Bios and disable the HT, see if that changes the issue

I'd just like to say that to everyone here who is helping me
