I’m on Vista and using an Acer Aspire 3680 with a Celeron 1.73 Ghz (don’t hate the player, hate the game) and the CPU will go to 100% and it has nothing to do with processing running.
Right now it is at 100%, but I only have 2 browsers open (firefox and chrome). And each has 2 tabs. However sometimes i can run 10+ tabs and not have a problem.
However when I check windows task manager even though it says CPU at 100%, you can see which programs are using what % of CPU. But even when it is at 100%, I can only see about 20% of CPU being used on programs like firefox. All the other programs are 00. So the Task manager says I am using 100% at the bottom (CPU Usage: 100%) however when I click on the CPU tab and organize programs by CPU usage it only adds up to 10-20. I’m not sure what the other 80-90 is being used on since it isn’t listed in task manager.
