Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook ?

CPU Performance always sitting above 70%

\015 My Acer Aspire 3003wlci (XP Pro) was working just find and then all of a sudden after rebooting I couldnt get my mousepad or keyboard to work. It only way that I could log into my computer was to plug in external ones. I couldnt figure it out and then I checked my task manager and my processes were sitting at over 70% fluctuating. The only thing that I could see that was using the CPU was the System Idle Process and the System Process. \015\012\015\012When I try to do anything it just hangs. I cant even shut down without taking the battery out. \015\012\015\012I do not know what to do I am so lost.\015\012\015\012I thought that maybe it was bad memory, replaced it and still no luck. \015\012\015\012HELP!!!\015\012\015\012Thanks in advance!\015

Answers :

Remove the battery from the system. Most likely, it will begin responding when you remove the battery. If so, the battery is bad.\015\012
\015\012Otherwise, if you have any other external devices (USB HDD, etc), remove those as well. Take note when the system starts responding.
Hello slewis938,

Are you familiar with the freeware tool called Process Explorer? It's a third party version of Windows Task Manager but contains many more features. For example, if a svchost process is using a lot of memory you can mouse over the process and actually see which services are running in the svchost process. Of course, there's much more that can be done with the Process Explorer application. and It's size is not very large for all it does. I've been using it for a few years now and it has helped me more than Windows Task Manager. Please check it out to see if it can help you determine what's causing the high cpu usage. Here's a good article about Process Explorer: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx
Here's the Process Explorer download link:

Have a great day,
