My system specs are as follows: Dell Inspiron e1705 Laptop Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU T7200 @ 2.00Ghz 2.00Ghz RAM: 2GB OS: 32bit Windows Vista HDD: 320GB 7200RPM Western Digital Hard Drive Ok guys, just recently within the past 2 weeks I installed a new HDD into my laptop, I upgraded from the stock 120GB drive to a 320GB 7200RPM WD drive. I reinstalled vista, all drivers seem to be working and up to date, and my system is faster then ever. Theres only one problem though. Problem: Wen doing things such as installing a program, playing WoW, or any other game. The processor seems to focus ONLY on that and I cannot do anything else, even opening up [My Computer] takes about 30 seconds for it to fully load. In task manager the game or program is using 100% of the CPU. I don't know whats going on here, or what to do, all I know is that its the most annoying thing ever and I cannot stand it. Browsing the web on Mozilla is fine though that doesnt use 100% of the CPU. only happens wen I install something or am playing a game such as WoW, Warcraft 3 etc... This never used to happen before. If anyone has any suggestions or can help me in any way, your help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys =).
