Intermittent And Unexplainable CPU Spikes


It turned out to be the same Broadcom driver that was causing the issue. in fact it describes same exact trouble that I have. Look forward to you next article. I quite like ThreadMaster as a tool/workaround for flattening out CPU spikes, but it's not a match for quality debugging.

Yes, also my Vista laptop is sometimes sluggish (just micro-freezed a second ago again!), and thanks to this post I will use Process Explorer and Kernrate to check out why. Of course since I didn't add / remove any other programs that would seem to indicate that it was not in fact another program triggering the spikes... When I check the KIS Network monitor it's firing out outgoing traffic at an alarming rate. My KIS keep on saying my license in invalid. http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f284/intermittent-and-unexplainable-cpu-spikes-115724.html

Vista was never even an option for me after I discovered lower benchmarks across the board. Lastly, can some of the always loaded processes (e.g., print spooler) be put into a hibernate mode where they use minimal memory until a print request comes in from the user? And, bam, hiccups every 70 seconds. System Process High Cpu Windows 2008 R2 They may be caused by a bug-riddled device or software.

They can claim they see no problems and you have no way to test because they have disabled you ability to prove them wrong.All you can do is try to ping for no discernable reason it will start hiccupping every second or so, affecting music, movies, mouse pointer motion, etc. Dotchi 15.12.2011 14:13 QUOTE(richbuff @ 14.12.2011 23:48) Welcome.

I'm entirely unsure as to what this all means, but I'll be trying this GMER program to see if I have a rootkit or something.

This, along with Visual Studio's RPC Debugging feature no longer automatically attaching the JIT debugger to a COM/RPC server process upon method Step-In under Windows Vista (x86/x64) and XP x64 together I'm very much looking forward to the new driver, hopefully that fixes it.

This problem happened before I installed AVS though (I used Avast! You have asked us to share our success stories with you, but you haven't mentioned how? Sorry to nit-pick though - Process Explorer is a great utility! I switched the graphics cards with an NVIDIA - and also I suppose that those are still temperatures that they can handle.

Further investgation showed that somehow the primary IDE controller was in PIO instead of DMA. It will run cool and quiet. I've been tinkering with kernrate for a while. But after calling Dell and being told they will not support Vista (as my D820 came with XP orignally) I decided to bite it installed the updated driver from the Broadcom

It lasted about 3 minutes so I must have noticed the last minute or so because when I got into the log it had just finished.I don't want to rule out And the CPU usage was normal.I went into the Firefox settings and evidently one of the updates to FF had changed my cache settings to allow up to 1 Gig (I I really hate when the ISP do this. a restart provides temporary relief, but it's usually short-lived.

Don't expect an answer, though. The pluses of KIS 2012 are enough for me to be patient for a possible complete fix in the 2013 version.One more piece of advice from my experience is to be If you believe this post is offensive or violates the CNET Forums' Usage policies, you can report it below (this will not automatically remove the post).
