System CPU usage 99%
by denille - 4/22/05 9:10 PM
on my other main usage PC, all was working fine a few hours ago, and after rebooting, Ive been unabl eto "do" anything on it since then.
It kicks into winows xp, my account opens up, but clicking on anything just causes the HD to constantly try and access info, but nothing happens.
After looking around, checking the Bios to see that the memory is fine and the CPU temp is fine, I resorted to checking the system resources using Ctrl Alt Delete.
I did this, because all the hardware seems to be working fine (I unplugged both hard drives to see if either of those was the problem)...
Checking the system resources told me that CPU usage was at 100%.
Upon checking the actual resources list, it was one in particular that was reporting a constant 99% usage
System : System - 99
I have no idea what this means nor how to remedy it.
All suggestions will be gratefully received...thanks.
