"...and end pro the cpu usage goes back to normall"

end pro - what does that mean??

"mb and graph drivers in 100% usage by dr watson when turn of cpu goes back to normal"

Do you mean that if you turn off dr watson, cpu useage goes down to normal??

Put ... dr watson disable ... into a google search, and you'll get loads of help.
