Why is my GPU usage 100% during idle?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Not really a big deal, I can just restart and it will be fixed.
This has happened once in the past.
Just curious, what could be causing this?

a possible sensor error?

You have trixx installed as well as afterburner, my guess is they are clashing. I had similar problems with both installed with voltage going up randomly. I'd uninstall either one and see it that helps.

GPU usage was 100% before i opened afterburner.

maybe its misleading, like system idle process in task manager?

It's ATI's poor driver programming. I've had it with every single version of their drivers for a 5850.

I wouldn't blame ATI drivers, it's only happened once in the past.

I'm using 11.1 drivers and I too have started running into this problem.
It started around 10.12 drivers.
5970 works fine, but after exiting a game the screen flickers a bit and 1 GPU usage is stuck on 99% :/
Rebooting after every game isn't really a solution.
Shame as these have been the great performers
