I just went out and bought me a 6600GT. A good one, with DDRIII (not that pathetic 'gamers edition' card) I dont know why it only uses a 128 bit memory interface, when my 9800 pro uses a 256 bit one.. and is slower. Well thats just an on-the-side ramble. Back to the problem: CPU usage. ill do an ascii chart of my taskmon readout: /\__/``\/\__/\/\/\_/\_/\/\/ ... I think you get the point. In fact every now and then text stops appearing as I write up this very topic.
I've noted that svchost is spiking severely, and another thing.. CnxDslTb.exe is also CPU burning. I think thats a dsl modem driver.
Pandascanned, Hijacked this. All that, I have nothing. It seems to be directly related to HDTV output on my card. I dont use HDTV tho.
Oddly enough I was applying a system attribute, and svchost.exe.20050320-1424-00hdmp 'cannot be updated - access denied.' Its not a prefatch or anything. What the... do I do to fix this problem?
