just a minute ago i was installing Sim City 4. during the installation my cpu usage jumped to 100%. This isnt normal on my computer. Also, often my computer freezes for a couple seconds… the cursor will freeze as well as anything else going on. right before it unfreezes it goes “dee-doo, doo-dee” as if i unplugged a usb cable and plugged it back in. anyone have any idea whats going on?
