  1. Before the motherboard switch, WoW did not cause any issues. I've already updated the BIOS (The Dell website had the same version I had already installed though, but I installed it anyway) and switched from "dell recommended" power to "maximum power" or whatever it's called. This was prior to that last trace. Do you have any other suggestions? I'm going to try reformatting and reinstalling windows but if it's a BIOS problem I don't think that will help
  2. Alright, updated to SP2, did a windows update, unplugged all USB devices and still getting the same issue. I even disabled my wireless adapter. New DPC: http://img259.imageshack.us/img259/7034/dpc2.jpg New Interupt: http://img406.imageshack.us/img406/5112/interupt2.jpg And I've private messaged you the new ETL file Thank you so much for your insight on this issue. Rarely do I ever get free help from someone I am a stranger to
  3. The thing is, I have to wait for the spike to happen before I close the trace. It's random and not a consistent issue. It happens like every 10 minutes or so. It's happened even with the western digital harddrive out. I'll install SP2, remove every USB device and do another trace if you think that will help?
  4. I'm using a Razr Naga Mouse, a Western Digital external HDD, and a laptop cooler I've Private message'd you the link to the etl file
  5. Hello Andre I read the first 15 pages of the thread, and couldn't find anything close to what I am experiencing - if a solution is in the second half I apologize for wasting your time. It seems to me my numbers are very high, you said to watch out for usec values over 256... almost all of mine are over 100,000 =\ Here's screenshots of both DPC and Interrupt tables http://img855.imageshack.us/img855/8336/dpca.jpg http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/9877/interuupt.jpg It seems multiple files are causing issues, even my lower ones seem to have higher values than I've seen other people post their highest ones have (if it's relative numbers that matter, and not absolute ones, I guess this is irrelevant though) My etl file is 664mb but if you want me to upload it i can. The specific issue i'm having is every 15 or so minutes, my CPU usage hits 100% for 5 - 10 minutes. If it helps this is after a dell tech came over and replaced my motherboard with a new one. All my drivers (webcam, chipset, video, network adapters, bios, card reader,etc.) are all up to date from the dell website. My machine is a Dell Studio XPS 16 laptop, running Vista SP1 64 bit This has been driving me nuts, anything you can help with i'd greatly appreciate.
