My new Dell laptop has a mobile AMD Sempron 3500+1800 processor.
Windows XP home. 1 Gig Ram.
Since day one the processor usage has been nearly 100% near constant. Only thing I can find pulling much in task manager is CLI.exe which apparently is ATI Video card process. It is using nearly 60% of the processor. I'm not running any games or anything, the computer is simply sitting there with nothing visibly lit up.
In task manager, I've ended the process and CPU usage immediately drops to around 5%. Computer seems to run fine afterwards too.
Can CLI.exe be totally disabled? When I reboot the puter, it shows it running again in task manager.
Thanks for any help.
