heres my specs/ and this is a fresh install of windows xp/

Motherboard: ASUS P5WD2-E Premium
Video card: Nvidia GeForce 6800 xt
CPU: Pentium D 3.0GHz 775
RAM: 2 GB Corsair

Try the processes tab instead, there is a column which shows how much of the CPU time each process is using.

no DONT buy a new cpu
there a fiddle and xp priduct activation will fail as you are installing it on a different machine

what does process manager say is using all the cpu time?

ctrl-alt-delete -> processes tab - scroll right and click on "cpu" heading to organise by processor usage

try killing whatever uses all the cpu and see

Do you have the correct motherboard drivers etc....?
