Alright, this problem emerged out of no where one day, and has gotten progressively worse. I'm running Vista Premium on my laptop (works beautifully, no hitches). So when I unplug my laptop from its power chord, everything works fine for 2 to 10 minutes, and then all of a sudden the second core maxes out. I've turned off programs, I've switched to Basic, and I've looked at the task manager. I can't seem to locate any problem. Also, just before it happens, the (wireless) internet goes down.

Any ideas?
