Installation problems?

Ok i have searched and searched for anything that might help with my problem but i can not find anything close. So here goes. i have tried this with both 32 and 64bit versions of 7 professional and the results are the same. After the installation process completes the processor usage jumps from up and down from 1% all the way up to 15% and everywhere in between. Also to open an icon i have to right click and hit open double clicking does not work. On top of all that if i leave the system idle for more that a few seconds it turns the monitor off and enters sleep mode and will not wake from sleep mode upon pressing the spacebar. I have installed all available updates thinking that my have been an issue.

Some background info i am dual bootiing XP and 7 both have 40gig partitions. Thank you in advance for any advice you may have.
