View Full Version : High CPU and mem usage when idle. Very concerned...
02-03-2001, 07:04 AM
I have a machine with a Celery 700 no o/c and 224mb of ram on win98se. I launched the system monitor to check CPU usage and mem usage, and they are very high, even after a reboot. The CPU doesn't seem to go below 60% ever, and the mem is at 146MB. I only have a couple of things in the task tray, but even when I only had systray and explorer, it didn't budge. I only built this machine about 4 weeks ago. Can anyone please explain what may be happening and to fix it? Or try to find out what is causing it?

Hope you can shed some light.

i'd run a program that checks to see how much cpu time each app is using.

I did that with wintop, and there was nothing using it. The idle was at 99%.
