What could be causing 100% cpu usage on a windows tablet pc when all non-microsoft services are disabled and all startup entries are disabled?
Posted on 2010-08-18
We have a MOTION COMPUTING tablet pc running MS WINDOWS XP TABLET PC 2005 W/SP3.It is a 1 Ghz machine with 1gb ram.It has AVG Network Edition antivirus(version 9).It is used by a doctor and he has some medical programs, ms office.We have removed AVG completely.We have disabled startup items and non microsoft services one by one and ALL altogether.Still cpu usage is 100%.The tablet APPEARS to run ok for the most part but it locks up when the medical program is accessed on a server.The tablet is used wirelessly AND wired.It does not lock up all the time.It is virus/spyware free.
There is another tablet that "locked" up as well but there are other desktop pc's that are not locking up when accessing the medical program.
These motion pc's do not APPEAR to be overheating.(ac adapter and tablet only WARM to the touch and they arent powering down). What else can we check? Thanks in advance..
