I recently noticed problems occuring in my software and during regular use of the computer.

Examples : say your online reading on the screen, a certain few words will blink occasionally or clicks or pops audibly. It happens every few seconds.
I finally hit ctrl, alt, del and went to performance. The cpu useage goes from 0% to 62% to 8% to 32% to 2% etc., etc. These "fluctuations" happen every 2-4 seconds causing my computer to basically bog down. I have tried several things to see what is causing these constant stabs at my cpu power with no avail

I NEED HELP!!
all my stuff is less that a year old:

amd2800 xp processor
asus m-board
radeon 7200 graphics
M-audio delta 66 sound card

Thanks, anton

Have you run any programs to check for spyware or viruses? Those two are the most common causes of unknown CPU usage spikes...

it's a new proc speciality . there are faulty processors out there - they tend to show this load fluctuation problem - others don't - it's not spyware , virus , worm as it happens on fresh intalls and under linux too .

Hi,
You have answered a thread from Jun 26th, 2008, I doubt the poster still has the same problems and he/she may not even have the same PC or OS. Good to see you want to help people with their problems, look for newly posted threads where you have information that can help the poster and assist there. Keep up the good work!
