My Problem: My computer randomly hangs for 15-30 seconds. Everything freezes, Mouse, Keyboard, Applications. Task Manager reports a 100% CPU usage. This problem is getting extremely annoying.
What I've done: I've tried everything basicly. Reformatted my hard drive too many times with 3 different operating systems (Windows 2000, Windows XP Home/Pro, Windows 2003) all with the same problem. I've ran 3 different Anti-Virus programs/2 Different Anti-Trojan Scanners/Spyware Scanner/3 Different Firewalls, no results [same problem]. I've booted Windows XP Home Edition with only 2 Services running in the background and only the major processes running in the background, no dice. Updated Windows XP Home Edition with every single critical update/service pack. I've updated every driver for my PC from OEM website Audio/Graphics/Networking/BIOS. I've changed out my Network Card disabling the on board, nothing. I've changed out hard drives nothing. I've changed out memory, nothing. I've tried running the PC at a cooler temp., nothing. I've cleaned out my PC case of any dust, nothing. Basicly I've tried everything in the book, no results.
Solution? I'm stumped, I don't know what else I could try. It seems like everything I try to do results in a failure. I would love some help right now!
Thank you for your time, greatly appreciate anyone who could help me out.
