    Hi - yesterday evening I removed the Graphics card and then reinstalled it (just something I read on another forum). It seems to have improved the CPU usage - it is now down at about 3% when no processes are running (which is good), but when I run a game (say Age of Empires 3) the CPU usage goes upto 100%. Perhaps it is only this game - I will try another one this evening and see how it goes and let you know - good to hear that you got your problem solved!
