Question about HP Pavilion dv8000t Notebook

1 Answer

My audio on my dv8000 has become scratchy about every 3 minutes- regardless of the program, or cpu usage etc. my audio codecs say they are up to date. I'm thinking that when I changed them this problem started? could have been other things as well. I went through a few computer problems (replaced a fan) (pc recovery after some nasty spyware) and I'm now operating on a almost back-to-normal computer.

Tip

For better video quality with EasyCap USB video capture card:


1. Install FFDShow codecs to Your Windows: http://adf.ly/1310198/ffdshow-codecs
2. Use gold plated cables and adapters - s-video is normally a little bit better than composite
3. Check that all contacts between devices, cables and adapters are tight enough
4. Do not use any extension USB cable - put EasyCap/EzCAP straight to the computer's USB port
5. Switch off all other programs during capturing
6. Capture with max resolution 720x576px PAL, 720x480px NTSC.
7. You must have a powerful computer - check that CPU Usage is under 50% during
capturing and if it goes over, so buy more RAM and/or better processor and/or
better graphic card and/or faster hard drive.

How to Protect PC from Overheating?


Laptop over heating which is also known as Thermal Overload.This is mainly due to excess usage of CPU(More than 60%) for a long time.


To check CPU usage Right click on Task Bar>Select Start Task Manager>Performance.

or

Shortcut Ctrl+Shift+Esc

If your CPU usage is more than 50% you need to close some applications which are using 20++% CPU.
To check application which are using 20++% CPU
Right click on Task Bar>Select Start Task Manager> Processes
Search in this dialog box for programs which are using 30++% CPU
Have a look.......hjlava_3.jpg






You need to close this application to prevent PC from over heating.Actually %age usage indicates load to CPU by the application.If load is to much CPU is to processes at faster speed which in turn increases temperature of CPU.

To close the program select the program,and select End Process.



If didn't found any program using 30++% CPU in this dialog box.
Select Show process from all users. and search in this dialog box and close the program.

Caution:some times your system also uses 30++% CPU inn some processes like anti virus scanning,at this if you closed the program your PC may shutdown.At this time you need to restart the PC.

This usually happens for out dated anti virus or incompatible programs.

There are some other factors like Graphics Properties and Graphic Memory,Display size, Processor type,etc.At this time its better top use a cooling pad.




Some program like camera drivers,Simulation softwares,games uses 50+% CPU.This is common these programs need to process large amount of data at short interval time which increases CPU usage but this is normal.


The processors properties are tested at 140*c so no need to worry.If the CPU exceeds the limited temperature PC will shuts down automatically,and after cooling you need to start the PC.
Thank you...:)

CPU usage 100%


This is due to memory and program usage.
Depending on your computers specs. try these steps
1. Disk clean and defrag
2. Virus, spyware, malware, Trojan, rocket scan and removal
3. Registry cleaner and optimizer
4. Check disc space on the C: drive
5. Turn off unnessasery programs auto starting

If this does not work it maybe that you need to upgrade your computer or add some extra RAM.

Is high CPU usage will make battery life reduction?


Anything that requires more activity from your CPU will shorten the battery charge. It is eating power. I am not sure about "Magician".

Distorted, scratchy sound with Toshiba Satellite


OK, I would restore or recover the computer to manufacturer's original specifications and automatic update to the latest sp3.

Then, I would reinstall your virus protection and see if it's better.

I have a HP Compaq Presario SR2170NX (refurbished) and since we have had it, no matter whether we are using it (running programs etc), or not, the CPU will dramatically spike in % useage at times and also...


Have you run any anti-virus programs? Inexplicably high CPU usage is a tell-tale sign of virus infection.
Computers do have fans in them in order to coll the CPU. If you don't have any viruses, it could indicate that your CPU is frequently overheating. You could need to replace it, or possibly

100% CPU usage


Hi,

Try to monitor the CPU usage before opening CROME. If it is normal before opening it then there is some process under CROME which takes you CPU usage report to GOOGLE on this. and remove it through Add/Remove programmes under control panel.

Try to use Firefox instead of CROME.

If it happens again then there is some thing wrong with OS( most probabaly Spyware or trozen).

Sound problems


defrag the hard drive, clean out the temp files, see what your cpu usage is in task manager- and see how much stuff is running in there also. See if you have enough ram, and uninstall and re-install the sound drivers.
