cpu runs at 100

Hewlett-packard Dx5150 workstation

Specs: Windows 7, 2.2/2.5
i have an old system but it should be running fine with 2.5gb ram and amd64 2.2ghz. I have put fresh installs of win7 and xp in both 32 and 64 bit versions (all on seperate hard drives that I still interchange), and all show cpu running at 100%. All bios available have been applied. I have many other PCs here and some older than this and they run fine with win7.

Any thoughts????

Did you check Task Manager to see which program is hogging the CPU? You may have an infection or installed some crappy application. Which anti-virus do you have?

no, I have 3 fresh installs on seperate disks and all have cpu maxed out. CPU has no burnt pins. There are no apps on any version. I don't have any other amc boards or chips to see if it is one of those but that is all I can think of.
