My laptop CPU usage is at 100%

I noticed that when ever i move my laptop to the living room or my daughter is on the cell phone, my laptop freezes up. CPU usage at 97-100%. and it stays there until i move back
Im beggining to think that the cpu speed and the cell phone is operating at the same frequency. Does Tmobile operates at 1.9Ghz.?

Yes you are correct that the tmobile has a frequency

The U.S. T-Mobile network predominately uses the GSM/GPRS 1900 MHz frequency-band, making it the largest 1900 MHz network in the United States.
which is 1.9 ghz

try stopping some servicies(WIN XP)
click on start
click on run
type in MSCONFIG
and press enter
you will get system configuration utility
click on services tab
at the bottom there is a box which has a message hide all microsoft servicies
put a checkmark in that box and then uncheck all boxes which you think is not a programe you use
once you do this click on apply
then click on close
you will be asked to restart the system
just restart it
now you will get a message regarding system configuration utility
do put a check mark in the box which says do not show me this message in future
then click n ok
your system should work fine.

Download and install the FREE version of Malwarebytes (linked below). Check for and allow it to install an updated definition file.

Msi wind freezes and jitters when watching live tv


Sometimes live TV stream can be demanding on Internet bandwith and you memory. I would check Task Manger>Performance chart while streaming to see if you memory or cpu usage is peaked out. If it does, you should look into upgrading your memory.(If you are max out, see if you can change to a memory card with faster speed and capacity.)

Good Luck.

Laptop freezing on netflix

There are many things that might cause your PC to run slowly or restart at time and then. It could be a fragmented disk; fragmented registry; a virus, Trojan, or spy ware; high CPU and/or utilization due to too many programs running; high disk I/O; or something else.

To check your CPU and memory utilization, run Task Manager. You can start Task Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and then clicking on the Task Manager Button. In Task manager, click on the Performance tab and check CPU Usage and PF Usage. PF Usage is an indicator of memory usage. If one or both of these is high, click on the Processes tab, and sort the columns by CPU or Memory to see what processes are consuming the resource. If you are not sure what the process "Image name" is for, Google the name and you should find what the process is for.

If your CPU and memory usage are reasonable, then you may have a different issue. Even if you running anti-virus software, it may be beneficial to scan your PC with another scanner to check for viruses. No anti-virus software is 100% perfect at catching everything. Here are a few good free online virus scanners that you can run to check your PC: 23&pkj=RRJEDTKJBTVISBYWWYP

An excellent free utility for overall system maintenance is Advanced System Care Free ( .html ). I use this utility on a regular basis.

You should always run anti-virus software. There are several very good, free, anti-virus products available. One good source to read editor and user reviews, and safely download anti-virus software, is -- search for free antivirus software. In addition to the reviews, you can see how many people are downloading the software, which is another good indicator of how popular it is.

I have used AVG Free ( ) , and Avast Free ( l ). Both are very good, and completely free. At present I am using Avast on all of my home computers.

I have heard good things about Avira AntiVir Free ( 39_4-10322935.html ), and it has good ratings, but I have not personally tried it.

In addition to Avast or one of the other free anti-virus software packages, I also run Ad-Aware ( tml ). Ad-Aware is a free anti-malware, anti-spyware package.

Good luck!

About INTEL EE220TX24 It doesn't occasionally move at time where horizontal side FAN moves when turning on power. Is this normal?

S Of course, because while switching on your laptop, it takes lot of cpu usage. If the cpu usage is more then the fan will moves automatically. It's OK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Having lived most of my life amidst "software"

I finally decided to jump over all the acrimony...
went directly to Word10... Not that bad.

Hope this helps

CPU Usage jumps to 100% and down to 2% when I change websites

I'd say it has NOTHING to do with how or when you access Yahoo. In fact, anytime you see an extreme jump in CPU usage like have to consider that you may very well have a TROJAN VIRUS that's hogging up all your memory (among other things viruses do). If you don't have a good anti-virus program, then get one fast. Update all virus definitions, then.......RUN a FULL scan on your pc or laptop! Watch what you find.
