I noticed my resource monitor was reporting 100% CPU usage. I couldn't get it to drop so I did a completely clean install of a legitimate copy of Windows 10 and the only thing I've installed was Google Chrome. Even before I did that I've still had 100% CPU usage. WHAT THE FUCK?Any recommendations for a fix beyond the things on the first page of Google?
Install Windows 7 or install Gentoo
>>61877554so this is what you gotta do:install ramdisk cleaner and then clean computeralso install all updatesand your setshould work
Even more odd, the System Idle Process shows 95+ which should indicate the CPU not being used correct?
Just see whatever is using up the cpu and then end it anon, not very difficult
>>61877605Forgot the image. This is basically the only thing showing CPU usage.
>>61877609I've already done that. Nothing is showing any usage at all. That's why I posted here.
just end the task desu
Another oddity: Process Explorer shows > 5% CPU usage. As does Performance Monitor. Task Manager still shows 100% usage however.
>>61877719See here: >>61877631and here: >>61877732
>>61877732Sorry, less than 5% not more than 5%.
>>61877605windows doesnt show everything thats going on lmao
you do realize you have to click the cpu column for it to actually organize by usage
Yes, I realize this. I've done that just not in that specific screenshot.I'd gone through the first page of Google results trying everything ending with reinstalling Windows 10 cleanly. Apparently the issue was somewhere in my BIOS though as I just updated it to the latest version and Task Manager is reporting normal CPU usage now.
