My cpu is being used way to much. I have an athlon xp 1800+ on a shuttle ak31 motherboard. In small games and winamp visuals it uses 100% even using the smallest size winamp visualzations. any ideas?

alot of winamp visualizations such as geiss and them are CPU intensive rather then videocard intensive, there is nothing wrong with your chip..in fact geiss is written in pure x86 code and your CPU affects your quality with it alot more then your vidboard, not to mention alot of the visualizations use beat detection schemes and such to do the pretty things they do so that in turn eats more cycles :p

besides if a app is using 100% of the cpu you can see that as a good sign in that nothing else is eating away at your cycles :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
