sircrester started following How to get the cause of high CPU usage caused by apps?
sircrester replied to MagicAndre1981's topic in Windows Tips 'n' TweaksDoes the following scenario apply to you?: •You have a computer that is running Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7. •You connect a full-speed USB audio device to a high-speed hub, and then connect this hub to the root hub of a USB 2.0 EHCI host controller on the computer, OR you connect a high speed USB 2.0 audio device directly to the root hub of a USB 2.0 EHCI host controller on the computer. •You start an audio playback/recording program. This program opens the USB audio device. In this scenario, you notice that there is high CPU usage approximately every 15 seconds on the computer. Additionally, you may experience skipping in audio playback from the audio device when overall CPU usage reaches 100%. If so, go to: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/981214/en-us Cheers
