Hi!

I have a Toshiba Satellite 4010 CDS. I have an external monitor, mouse and keyboard hooked up to it. 96 megs. Computer is awfully slow in processing. Even whilst on the net ( have DSL), clicking on a link could take as long as 15 seconds to process. My system monitor tells me that the cpu is running at 100% usage. What could be the problem?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Taskinfo2000 is a great utility for analyzing such problems. It will breakdown cpu usuage among running tasks and give you a host of other info besides. Well worth the honor system 12$ registration.

Windows sysmon is not completely reliable, but if things are running as slow as you say they are, something must be hogging resources. Without a specific taskmonitor, you might be able to identify this by doing a ctrl-alt-del and end-tasking, one at a time, running tasks in the Close Programs window. Leave Explorer, Systray, and rnaapp (if online).
