CPU Problems Please Help

  1. Dear All

    Can someone please help I am pulling my hair out here!!!

    Problem. Last week my lefthand mouse button (built in mouse) stated sticking or taking lots of clicks to work, then my CPU usage went through the roof using 100% to work most progs ie Firefox, Excel is the worse it uses 100% to paste an item!! Now my computer takes forever to start up and often freezes. I have 1GB RAM with a AMD Tuion 64 processor.

    I have configured the mouse now to a left-handed mouse but other problems still persist, even whilst typing this the cursor keeps skipping backwards after I have typed a letter!!

    I have removed Norton, I have tried Spyware, AVG and Adware to no avail. Anyone any ideas??

    Kind Regards

    Hi All

    Please can anyone help!!!

    I have a HP Pavillion Laptop 14mths old, dv5000. with a AMD Turion Proc 64 mobile tech ML37. It has Synaptics Ps/2 port touchpad mouse.

    The problem started with the left mouse button freezing up and not selecting items corrrectly ie: dragging all cells on a Excel spreadsheet and not deselecting tbs in Firefox. Now the CPU usage has gone through the roof ie firefox 100%, Excel spreadsheets 100%. I have reconfigured the mouse so its now a lefthanded mouse ie I use the right button which seems to help but the CPU usage is still on max most of the time. I have unistalled Norton to see if this would help but no avail. I ahve used Adware and Spyware etc to no avai. The computer also takes numerous tries before it starts up when it constantly freezes.

    Please Help I am at my wits end!!

    maybe if u back all needed files up (on disc)
    then reformat it then reinstall windows and drivers
    see if the problems changes if not then u no its a hardware problem...
    then if u can change like ur cpu coz a cheap 1 and see wat thats like or ur mobo, mayb im not to sure but thats wat i'd do

    well do u have a lot of data? if u dont then i'd just reformat it, but it is a good idea to back everything up every (few days in my case) but couple of months maybe? lol
    and if u need a new cpu (or to test) im sure u can get a cheap 1 i think i can get the amd 3000 for like 20 quid so not that bad.
