Solved Why does my CPU usage skip around?

Dell / N5110
May 12, 2016 at 20:43:55
Specs: Windows 7, Intel Core i5 2410M 2.3GHz / DDR3 6GB
My CPU usage loves to skip around. When I am doing nothing it travels between 0% and 40%, and then when I do the slightest thing to cause load on the CPU, it goes up between 60% and 100% (more higher than lower). The laptop even spiked up to 50% when playing Minesweeper XD

I am using a Dell Inspiron N5110 Laptop
Specs:
Processor: Intel Core i5-2410M @ 2.30GHz
Motherboard: Dell 034W60
RAM: DDR3 6GB @ 665.1 MHz set up in dual channels (one is a Samsung M471B5273DH0-CH9 4096 MBytes, the other is a Samsung M471B5773DH0-CH9 2048 MBytes)
Windows Version: Microsoft Windows 7 (6.1) Home Premium Edition 64-bit Service Pack 1 (Build 7601)

I checked my temperatures and they linger around 50°C to 60°C, never going over 60°C even when on a huge load. (http://prntscr.com/b3fbhi) The laptop never had any issues before this. I have Windows Defender turned off, but Windows Firewall is still enabled. I also have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Home (PREMIUM).

Malwarebytes scan came up with only a few P.U.P.s, which is common. It didn't contain anything extremely dangerous. I ran a Disk Cleanup and cleaned 128GB worth of stuff. Installed Intel Driver Update Utility and updated the drivers that needed updating. I also ran the Windows Updater and installed all needed and optional updates. I optimized indexing, disabled Media Sharing in Windows Media Player, and even tried using ThrottleStop to test to see if the CPU was being throttled (which is wasn't). I also ran a Disk Defragmentation, and it came up with 9% defragmented, in which I defragmented it. To take it just a bit further, I also took apart the laptop and cleaned the CPU heat sink to make sure there was no way it was because of heat throttling.

I fixed it :D
I took some old thermal paste from another laptop and put it on this one, although it runs a little hotter (a high of 80 degrees C and a low of 47), I think because of that I realized the problem. I believe my CPU was shifted a bit and some of the pins were not able to make a connection, resulting in the CPU being throttled.
It now runs below 30% even when running a 1080p youtube video. :D
Thank you for the advice btw, it seems to have faster read/write speeds too.

What items are peaking in Task Manager? Have you checked to see if there are things in "Task Manager > Startup" that are either not needed or rarely used and can be run from shortcuts rather than continuously in the background.

I would also run these (in the order given) because they can find browser malware that even MalwareBytes can miss:

AdwCleaner:
https://toolslib.net/downloads/view...
(blue "Download Now" button on right).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Clean" button.

Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)
https://www.malwarebytes.org/junkwa...
(blue Download button).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run JRT. It might appear to have stopped at times or flash the screen but sit tight until it has finished.

Please copy/paste their logs on here so that we can see what they found.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I am thinking start up items that are not really needed.
CPU going high when gaming is normal but at idle should be low. On a factory Windows install you will never get to 100% idle but you should get fairly low.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

@Derek, doing that now

@Fingers, This CPU issue has only happened recently when I updated Windows (I turned off Windows updates for about a year). I had over 100 updates to install, and when I did my CPU started having issues. What I had in my Startup was what I had there before the Windows updates, and then after I had this issue I removed a ton of items from the Startup. I also deleted over 80GB of stuff on my HD that I didn't need.

The main problem is that if the CPU is put under barely any load at all, the usage spikes to above 60%, which is not normal.

Thanks. Having done that run MalwareBytes once more. If it finds anything please copy/paste that log too. Is the system still peaking the same?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Yes @Derek, the system is still having issues

I will run MalwareBytes now

I also just noticed that the Physical Memory never goes below 50%

Any program that causes a load. It really isn't just one specific program. I have noticed that Chrome takes up a bit more usage that others, but only when loading something. There are other programs though that do worse.

I will be gone for a bit, I am heading to a father/son outing for a few hours

Ok, and the Malwarebytes scan came back with 0 threats identified which is expected because I don't allow a lot of malware to access my laptop or build up on it.

It would be worth running ADWCleaner from time to time as what it finds can cause problems. Although those three programs are not the "be all and end all" of malware cleaning it is probably safe to assume that is not your issue. However I can alert a colleague to take you through a full clean if you so wish.

I see you have Windows Defender turned off. Can I take it that you have only one virus checker running in the background in real time?

Basically yes, I only recently turned it off to test if it was the problem. I usually have it on. Based on what I have been through before, it doesn't seem like this problem is malware related.

It seems to be running a bit better. I have decided to uninstall all the Windows Updates that I installed, excluding all the security updates. This problem started right after I updated windows a ton.

Normally it is best not to have more than one AV program running at a time although Windows Defender rides better than most with other AV's. The reason is to ensure that they do not both check everything or check each other.

Difficult to say where to go next. Do you notice any performance hit due to this activity?

Even thought it is still having a few issues, the CPU usage is getting better with every uninstall of a windows update that I do. It is starting to act more like normal, where I can have 9 tabs open, 4 being youtube and 1 being a stream. This is better, but not perfect because it spikes. I might just uninstall more, because that seems to work.

Nothing about this looks suspicious to you does it (other than the battery wear, my battery is dead, it kinda is over 5 years old XD) http://prntscr.com/b4l9ev

Nope - it looks fine. Battery wear shouldn't matter when it's on the domestic supply.

Ok, and there is no malware and no viruses confirmed. It must be Windows 7 then ;-;

Seems like it but it's a bit odd. If the machine is working fine then presumably there is not much to worry about but why it is doing it remains something of a mystery. It is just possible that it is simply using all the CPU it needs in order to maximise performance.

✔ Best Answer
I fixed it :D
I took some old thermal paste from another laptop and put it on this one, although it runs a little hotter (a high of 80 degrees C and a low of 47), I think because of that I realized the problem. I believe my CPU was shifted a bit and some of the pins were not able to make a connection, resulting in the CPU being throttled.
It now runs below 30% even when running a 1080p youtube video. :D
Thank you for the advice btw, it seems to have faster read/write speeds too.

Good find then - hope you are right. Temperatures you posted didn't seem bad but lets see how you get on. If you can remember pop back in a week and let us know if it is still behaving itself.
