I just set up a new motherboard and CPU in a friends machine.
It is going well, execpt that the CPU seems to be working very hard during bootup and after initial boot.
If I fire up Task Manager with Ctrl Alt + del, the CPU useage goes from 1 or 2% right up to 48% and back, it continually does this from 1 to 2% up to 48%.
When I look at the process that is causing this it is the System Process that is doing this.
Does anyone know what may be causing this ? Or where I could look for the cause ?
Could it be a faulty CPU ?
