How To Use Most Of Cpu Power In Xp Mode ?


I want to use the most of my cpu power in xp mode of window 7. I am using amd x620 with 4 cores and 6g of ram. My machines work wonderfully in window 7 - very fast. But, when i only use xp mode in window 7, it seems that only one core out of four cores of my amd x620 is working, the remaining three cores/cpus are still in "holiday". That is, can virtual window create virtual machines with 4 virtual processors or 4 virtual cores per virtual machine? If so, what should i do to get the three lasz cores work harder?

Sound Only Comes On When Monitor Goes Into Power Saving Mode

Windows 7 ultimate on a gigabyte g33-ds2r mobo, no sound :(hi i wonder if anyone is having the same problem? I have tried everything i can think of, installing drivers from the dvd that came with the mobo, going to download the latest ones from gigabyte & realtek, but still no sound. Everything seems to be working correctly. Drivers are detected. No errors. In fact on my taskbar, my volume controls have that little green bar moving up and down. Nd i just noticed that when my computer's screen goes blank, there's sound its only when i press a key or move my mouse. It jumps back to the desktop that the sound disappears :(please help i am real close to buying a sound-card.

System Pause After Start Up From Power Save Mode

In the last couple of days, when starting the computer from power save mode, it seems to freeze. When i open a program, it shows that the computer is working, but nothing pops up. I can still move my mouse pointer over the screen, but there is nothing there. Depending on the program, i can scroll over a section of the screen and find that my pointer changes to the fist pointer, as if to click on it to start whatever process it might be, but still blank. After i use alt, ctrl, delete, to open the task manager, the program pops up and the system goes back to normal. What kind of system error am i experiencing and how can i stop that from happening? The computer is only a few weeks old and i cannot understand why i would such a problem. Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

Windows 7 Freeze In Normal Mode, Safe Mode Works Fine

I am out of ideas. Three days ago my computer started freezing within a few minutes after startup. Freezes with no mouse movement and no keyboard. Must shutdown using the power button. Happens every time i start in normal mode. Safe mode works fine. I have done quite a bit of reading and tried a number of things, so far to no avail. Quite a few error codes present, here are some:

Winlog 6000
Service 7001
Distrib 10005
Service 7026
Event log 1101
Kernel 41
Browser 8032
Load perf 3011
Load perf 3012

I have tried restoring, turning off all non-microsoft services, disabling sound, updating video driver, memory test, adjusting bios per g skill tech forum. All hardware showing normal operation in device manager.

I can't find the minidump .dmp folder in c:/windows. The only location i find for .dmp files is in the watchdog folder, and there are quite a few in there. Let me know if i need to upload them.

My computer is a couple of months old and has been working flawlessly until this happened with one exception. (I have been getting occasional monitor blanking for a couple of seconds followed by a notification that the graphics driver has stopped responding and was successfully restored. )

Bsod After New Cpu

I've been looking and haven't seen anything on this topic, but if there is, sorry, didn't see it.
Anyways, i have been getting bsods every 2-4 hours ever since i installed my new processor. I cannot imagine why, but it happens, always saying usb_bugcode. As far as i am concerned the machine runs perfect; everything is fast, including games at 60 fps at least, would probably be even more when my 9800 gt gets back from repair (using a backup 8600 gt while it does). Anyways, people are saying it is my memory, however, like i said, everything is perfect besides the bsods and the occasional install error code.

I find it hard to believe that my 4gbs of ram, which by the way i found no errors on with memtest86 or windows memory diagnostics, suddenly became corrupted right on the minute when i installed my processor, not to mention the speed at which my computer runs. Would anyone know if the graphics card is doing this? Is its vram corrupt? Or is the computer just going mental because i installed a new cpu suddenly? I did format the hdd and reinstalled, so i know it's not viruses. The cpu is an e8400 @ 3. 00 ghz core 2 duo, 4gb of ram, an old 8600 gt, running windows 7 x64.

Cpu Goes Up To 100%

I have upgraded from win xp to win 7 , with cpu intel celeron d 2. 53 ghz, 1gb ddr2 ram, nvidia geforce 6200 , via vt8237 sata , via rhineii lan and cmedia cmi9761 ac97 audio codec. After updating most of the drivers individually from the different manufacture , the computer become better in performance, however, it is 4 % cpu when idle and 100% when opening any one of the programs , such as word, ie8, etc and doing virus scan by kaspersky.

Notice that , i can not complete the virus scan as it shows messages insufficient memory after 3 hours scanning and then stops the scan. Also , the cmi9761 has no drivers updated for windows 7.
Do not know whether the single core cpu is the problem or the 1g ram is not enough.

Why Is Cpu Overloading?

I have newly upgraded to windows 7 ultimate 32 bit version. I also added a new sata drive and a new floppy drive (needed it for a specific job). It took days to get the sata drive working properly but it seems fine now. My problem: as often as once a minute the cpu use goes to 100%. At that point everything freezes and i have to sit and wait for some of the cpu to clear. I haven't timed it but the wait is approximately 1-2 minutes. This happens apparently randomly, and it happens a lot.

I have watched the task manager's processes tab and an on screen cpu meter (a gadget). Only two processes ever go high. One is a game. The other is something called "system idle process". I have no idea what that is or what it does. I am watching the processes in task manager right now. To add to the confusion, the system idle process is up to 97 but cpu usage has remained at 1-4%. Can anyone out there give me information about how to track the cause down?

Cpu Frequency Goes To Zero

I've been running windows 7 64 bit on my hp hdx 18t laptop for months (since the rtm) and noticed that every once in awhile my computer would stop responding for a 1-2 seconds and then be back. It seems to do this randomly. Sometimes i notice it happen a couple times in a 10 minute period, sometimes once and then not again, sometimes i never notice it. After having this happen sometimes i ran the resource monitor and turns out that the cpu frequency is going to zero for a moment and then coming back. Has anyone else run into this?  

My bios and cpu drivers are up to date. When i was running vista i didn’t have this issue (i did not upgrade from vista – i did a fresh install). Seems like the occurrence increases when i run vmware.

Cpu Tries To Shutdown

Just switched to windows 7 and im starting to notice that my pc is starting to trying to shutdown . Its giving off the the noise it usually makes when it shutdowns like every hour but doesn't really shutdown . I have changed the power setting to never shutdown. It never did this when i was using windows xp so it somewhat seeming very strange. I looked up some info on the internet but that said it may be synchronization with my pc clock but that's not the case.

I have opened it to make sure everything was still running fine and of course they are but the continuous  shutdown noise is bothering me still. My board  is windows 7 compatible. Oh im am running windows 32 bit version if that helps. Any info on how to solve my problem would be greatly appreciated ty for your time drm my pc specs intel core i5 650 3. 20gh biostar th55b hdgskill  ddr3 1300 single channel 4gb ram evga 8400gs 512mb ddr2 graphic card

High Cpu Usage

I have searched the forums and the internet and even contacted microsoft customer support but cannot find any help. I upgraded from vista 64-bit to windows 7 64-bit home premium a couple of months ago. I guess i was the only person that never encountered a problem with vista so i was expecting a smooth transition to windows 7. The problem that i am experiencing with my hp desktop is very high cpu usage after some random period of low usage after it is first turned on. The cpu usage goes from a few percent to high 80’s to mid 90’s and everything slows down to a crawl.

This random period can go from minutes to days. Shutting the system completely down works most of the time. When checking task manager, no processes indicate high usage at all with processes running less than a few percentages after an initial spike after starting a program.

When i check "show processes from all users", the only high cpu usage is with system idle process and nothing else. I’ve redone the upgrade couple of times and then finally bit the bullet and did a clean install, but nothing helps. I’ve kept track of the processes and the services in task manager that are running when it is in low cpu usage and after it goes into high cpu usage and nothing changes. I’ve tried too many things on my own to mention here, but would appreciate any suggestions anyone might have. My hardware specs are as follows:

Amd phenom 9550 quad-core processor 2. 2 ghz
6 gb ram
64-bit operating system
Nvidia  geforce 9100 graphics

Cpu At 100% Usage

I upgraded from vista to win 7 on release day and have had no problems until recently. Over the last few days, my cpu usage will spike up to 100% at random intervals and stay there for a long period of time. When i check task manager and show processes from all users, services.exe is fluctuating anywhere from the low 50 to low 70% in usage. When the computer is running normally, services.exe is around the high single digits. I've uninstalled and programs that i installed immediately prior to the problem happening (and it's happening again as i type this) and i've run comprehensive virus/malware scans using microsoft security essentials and the eset online scanner.

Both found some adware stuff and removed it, but no virus or serious malware issues. This has been going on for several days and has made my computer almost unusable, and i'm at a dead end for what to do or where to look next. I hate to to a reinstall because the original install was so recent, so any advice i can try to avoid starting over would be great.

Cpu Usage High

I'm a fairly experienced computer user, and have a basic understanding of computing theory. I was wanting to propose an idea about the high cpu usage in windows 7 and see if anyone with a deeper understanding could tell me if i'm looking this in the right way. Not only have i had high cpu usage, but my ram is running at a constant 50-60% as well. I have a pretty cheap setup, only running a 1. 8ghz amd athlon and 2 gb of ram. However in my laptop which only has about half the
Computing power and yet doesn't have this high usage. So here's my question.could the high usage issue be in the fact that the system bus takes up more resources to operate.

Meaning say for example, and only for example as i know it's not this simple, a 32 bit system with 2gb ram uses 512mb of ram while idling, shouldn't a 64-bit system need 1gb of ram while idling?  Again, i know that usage percentages aren't set in stone like that, but i was hoping to simplify my hypothesis/question enough for you (the readers) to understand what i'm asking. If this does sound like a reasonable suggestion, could anyone tell me how i might go about testing it in order to prove my theory. I may just be looking at the meaning of 32 and 64 bit all wrong, and if so can someone please explain it to me better?

How To Lower Cpu Usage?

I am running windows 7. I took my tower outside yesterday and blew the dust out of it. When i started it back up i noticed that my cpu indicator was hi when nothing was running. I have been noticing things have been running slow and at times my tower makes a slight reving sound. How can i lower the cpu usage. I know i need to eliminate certain apps from starting up but i wouldn't know which ones. Can you help?Task manage shows  iexplore.exe a couple of times with large numbers can i just click 'end processes'?

Cpu Is At 100% When Idle

I have had a problem the last 2 weeks. My sons pc has suddenly started to behave badly when he is playing games. The are choppy and behaves strange. The same games worked perfectly before and just a few things has been altered. When i look at the cpu it's at a constant of 70-100% and it "spikes" every second. That behavior fits the problem it the games he plays.

When i look in task manager it shows that wmiprvse.exe has two processes running. One at 35-50% and one at 10-12%. At first i uninstalled avast 5 and reinstalled mse (the problem started about the time we changed the av) but it didn't help. I have also tried process-explorer and the only thing it tells me is several "ntdll.dll!Rtluserthreadstart" within wmiprvse.exe.

I have scanned the system for viruses and also scanned for malware but my system is clean. The system works fine in itself (windows 7 ultimate retail) but the hight cpu-spikes is really noticeable when a games is played. Of-course the system is up to date with all the latest drivers and updates from wu. What can i do?

Cpu Often Goes Up To 100% Usage

Often, i turn on my computer and it slows down a lot when i get to the login screen. It hangs on the "please wait. " Screen for a minute until finally letting me log in and then goes to the "welcome" screen and hangs for a minute more until it finally pulls up my desktop. The cpu usage stays at 100% for a while. Sometime it goes down to a normal level, but other times it will stay there until i restart my computer (which usually leads to the same thing).

I used malwarebytes' to check to see if i had any viruses, malware, spyware, whatnot and it came up clean. I defragged my computer and that didn't work, i looked to see if there was a program eating up the cpu and there wasn't and then i tried anti rootkit and that found nothing. So, i am pretty *** right now because i have yet to find a solution.

Wininit.exe Using 50% Cpu

My windows 7 dell laptop has recently become really slow. Cpu load is way up high, the fan is on full speed and the hard disk is very busy. Task manager shows that wininit.exe is permanently using 50% of the cpu with other processes mostly using no more than a few percent. In safe mode, wininit behaves itself and cpu load remains low. In fact i'm writing this post in safe mode because the computer is too slow to use in normal mode. I've run virus scans with avg and panda and both came back clean. I can't remember what i did, if anything, to make this start but i'd be grateful for any ideas on how to make it stop.

System Down Cpu Is 100%

I used xp and purchased windows 7, installed the 64 bit version and everything worked great. Then one day an important windows driver got deleted and there was nothing i could do but a clean install. I could not get the 64 -bit disk to read for some reason so i installed the 32. Now before the clean install, i could run two gaming windows and surf the net and my cpu would be around 30%.

Also when i rated my system my cpu was in the 6's. Now when i open one game window and nothing else, my cpu is 100%. And now my cpu is rated in the 4's. What could have made my cpu rate lower? I have downloaded the mobo drivers for windows 7 from my mobo manufacturer. I called tech support and think i got an asian kid that is still in high school. He did not have a clue as to how to fix it. I just did a clean install and he had me cleaning out my temp folders and other files which made my system unresponsive, once again had to do another clean install .

Cpu is still running poorly with windows 7. I have tried several things mentioned in the forums like disabling the windows media stuff but it did not work. The biggest thing soaking up my cpu is the system idle process which is always above 60%. I really like the windows 7 look but am close to just chalking it up to a wasted $140 and going back to xp. I thought windows 7 was supposed to be better than vista when it comes to resources but it seems much worse.

Support 2 Physical Cpu On 1 Motherboard

I have the system on which i would like to install win 7, but still is hard to find info if the win 7 will support 2 amdoptron254 64 bit cpu on one board? Would you post this on your site please ? I believe a lot of people want to know if it works in tandem of cpus. If i missed the subject please let me know where such forum or information could be read or learned. Thank you for taking time to go through my email. As an addition to all of it, i wish to add that i haven't come across even one clear answer with successful dual cpu (not x core or dual-core) deployment of any version windows 7 on the internet yet.

Cpu Usage - Google Documents

I would like to start by saying "i love windows 7!". I have an hp pavilion dv9720us which was originally purchased with vista home premium 32-bit. I did a clean install of windows 7 64-bit and added 2 gb of ram (total 4 gb). Other than a view driver problems, solved through the hp forums all as worked well except for one site i access frequently. A friend and i share documents via a google documents site and now when i try to access the site my cpu usage shoots up to 50-80% and the only option i have is to use task manager to get me out of the site. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Taskhost.exe Is Running At 50% Cpu

In the last week or two i've noticed that at certain points (i think only when my laptop is plugged into the ac power source) my laptop fans start running loudly, which attracts me to notice that suddenly taskhost.exe (under the user name "local service") is taking up continuously 50% of my cpu power. This doesn't happen constantly, just a random sporadic occasions. The allocation of 50% will then no subside until i do a system restart.

Clearly windows shouldn't be doing this, can someone provide any assistance? I've read another answer here but that doesn't answer my problem - i've run a full system virus scan and cannot detect any virus present. (I'm running windows 7, 64bit, home premium on a 4gb 2. 4ghz dual core intel core duo 2 based laptop. )

Explorer.exe Using 50-100% Cpu

I've noticed this for a few weeks. In task manager, explorer.exe shows as using 50-100% cpu, and programs seem to run more slowly. This reliably starts when i open an "explorer window". It will also start if i use msconfig to disable everything (except microsoft services). I have booted into safe mode and run malwarebytes anti-malware - nothing found.

I then ran process explorer, and discovered that the thread which seems to be responsible is called (has a start address) nttdll.dll!Etwtracemessageva+0x130. There may be one or two of these threads present, each using 48%+cpu.

I believe these are responsible, and i think they are used in some kind of event logging, possibly a debugger that somehow got turned on, but i don't know how to proceed from this point.

System:
Intel core2 email removed for privacy
8gb ram
Windows 7 professional 64 bit

Cpu And Ram Memory Very Slow

I am running win 7 ultimate 32bit on a dell xps m1730 (t7700 @2. 4), 4gb ram, nvidia 8700m sli, ageia physx, raido 0 (2x160gb 7200rpm) and i first notice the problems when playing high res video (mkv, hd-dvd), the computer couuld not handle it. I then proceeded with a windows experience index and got very different results from when i was running windows 7 rc 32bit, these were my results:

Cpu 2. 2  (win7 rc score 5. 4)
Ram 2. 8 (win 7 rc score 4. 8)
Graphics and hard drive remained the same (5. 9-6. 9)

I have checked bios settings for intel speedstep (enabled)
Checked cpu speed, was then running at 2. 25ghz (no progs running)
Checked power settings (all on high perormance)
Re-installed win 7 ultimate (on formated drive)
Installed all original driver in recommneded order
Have no error messages in device manager
Have 0-4% cpu load when idle

I am completely stuck now so if anyone got this problem or can think of something that i could check it will save me from reinstalling vista!

Upgrading Motherboard And Cpu After Win7 Upgrade

Upgrading motherboard and cpu on a pc with oem version of windows 7 home premium after the original motherboard and cpu failed and was returned for refund. I built a new pc and activated my oem windows 7 disk within 3 days but a week later it died so i returned the motherboard and cpu that was purchased as a combo deal and now i want to get a better quality motherboard and cpu.

I also am dual booting with vista ultimate 64 since i already had it and my wife uses it with an older copy of paperport software. Windows vista is on a 1. 5tb seagate hdd and windows 7 is on a 2tb seagate hdd and would they re-install using repair mode or do i need a fresh install.
