Does your Task Manager have a 'Processes' tab? That should show you what is taking up 98% of the processor. If it is a single-threaded application, it is normal that only one core would be affected.
For the BIOS error message, have you gone in to the BIOS and done a 'reset to factory defaults'? I think it's F9.
Thanks for your reply!
About the task manager: In the processes tab, even when I click; show processes for all users' nothing special shows up, just the inactive processes with 99%. (not sure if I translated it right, I have a dutch computer). When I click source control (or something) at another tab, it sais ''interrupts of the system - postponed procedurecalls and interruptsserviceroutines' which has a 23% activity.
on the bios; can it do any harm to reset it? or can i save the recent settings or something?
I have reset the BIOS to defaults, but the problem still occurs. I did find out that my Intel(R) Desktop Utilities isn't working. No idea if those problems are related though. Does anyone have another suggestion?
I can't think of anything immediately. Can you take a screenshot of the Processes tab and the Performance tab? Maybe something in there will inspire a troubleshooting path to follow.
