    I have a:
    Hp dv6815nr with:
    3gb ddr2 memory
    AMD Turion X2 TL-60 running @ 2.00 Ghz
    Nvidia Geforce 7150m
    160GB 5400rpm
    Windows 7 32-bit

    So here's the problem. My computer, has sudden spazzes, and starts using 50% of the processor randomly. I don't know how, and it seems like it does when the temperature of my processor goes up. Why is this? It keeps on happening after 2-3 hours of internet use. I don't have a virus ( I ran a virus check) and before it uses up 50%, I looked up if it had any wierd processes, and no, there aren't. When it goes to 50%, everything stops responding, even task manager when you try to open it. The only thing that works is shutting it down. Please someone help me!

    When this happens, open up the Task Manager and report back which Process or Application is utilizing all of the PC cycles.
