|My son's computer has an AMD Sempron 3000 and 512mb of memory. The CPU usage is always at 80% while the system idle process is 99%.|
This is after all XP updates have completed and it has sat idle for hours. I have eliminated all programs running in the background.
I installed a new graphics card for him, an Ati EAH3450 256mb. He was using the onboard graphics which only has 8mb memory and was very slow. When I installed the new card it got worse.
I'm assuming this is due to the CPU usage. If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it.
