    My cpu is being used up 100% by a process called "system".

    No applications are running.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Welcome to TSG....

    More than likely this is caused by a bad driver I would try to get to device manager and see what is showing in there with an exclamation mark or open and write them down and post them. If you can not get there thru regular Windows try safe mode.

    Do you have the system or computer recovery software and please post some system stats for us?
