cpu spiking on toshiba tecra 8100
Posted on 2003-11-26
I have a toshiba tecra 8100, 800 mhz, 256 mb ram.
The cpu usage for the process "System" jumps up to around 20 percent every 2 seconds. This may not seem like such a big problem but it's actually impossible to play mp3:s and similar things because they stop playing when System uses up the cpu. I've tried reinstalling windows but that doesn't help. I've also tried stopping all services that can be stopped but that didn't help either. The problem does not appear in safe mode however.
Does anyone have any ideas?
