I have a Compaq SR1629 which I have had for 1 year and 1 week. I have had engineers out 3 times as my CPU usage shoots up to 100% and wont budge. Keyboard and fan were blamed last time.They replaced mother board, CPU, fan and keyboard. This was mid November and its been running like a dream until today. CPU back up to 100%.(overnight. was fine yesterday) Very slow. Fan blasting away even though temperature is fine. Wont close down. Rang help line straight away. On the phone for an hour. checked loads of things but he cant find anything wrong. He just told me to do a system restore......again. Am I being led up garden path here? This will be 4th time in a year. Any suggestions please.
Hi,Windows Defender never picks anything up on mine,I would download A Squared Or something like that,And just use it if you think that you may have problems,Someone might come up with a better Anti-Spyware program,Or if it is AVG-Anti-Virus you have,You could also download Avg Anti-Spyware .Dont want to confuse you but I would download a good Anti-Spyware program,You have ad-aware and spybot,Good programs,But not the best,
PaulB2005 - Its all under 'System' at 99% all the time. Just recovered pc and before I did anything I checked task manager and it was still 100%. Helpline is sending engineer but feel i have been sold a pup.
Pamy - can't close pc down without using power button. It also wont wake up after going into standby without being turned off using power button. Not too bad at moment but I've seen it all before and know the signs.Windows encounters problems and has to close programmes quite often.
