about every 5 seconds, my cpu use jumps to around 100%. Which pauses damn near everything for a split second.
Also when I type this the letters are appearing about 10 key strokes late!
I just did a clean format & XP activation (I had no choice) and it's been like that.
Also the mouse is so sporadic in the ps2 port, that I can't use it. It's fine in the usb ports though.
Antivirus says i'm clean.
I have the VIA chipset drivers installed.
Latest Soundblaster drivers, latest nVidia drivers etc.
All MS XP updates too.
any ideas guys?
I'm on the verge of another format C: weekend
Also, Task Manager seems to be culprit for hogging the cpu.
But why? I'm suspecting one of those XP updates...
