    CPU Load 100%
    Hey there,

    Lately my PC has been running at 100% CPU Load constently. It is the 'System' process that is taking up the load. I tracked it down to the driver ACPI.sys, using process explorer.

    OS Windows XP Pro
    CPU P4 2.8Ghz

    Can anyone think of a way I can fix this problem?

    Thank you

    Try some virus detection/removal programs and spyware programs, in safe mode. May be something bad

    Yer I did do that it was my first thing to do. Its still 100% load in safe mode. I also noticed that my motherboard says my CPU is 90C all the time. I think that is a bit broken otherwise I would have a fire. I bought a new motherboard and its arriving this morning I'll see if hat fixes the problem, lets hope so anyway.
