Please go to your User CP located in the upper left hand corner of the forum page and fill out your system specs.

I do not quite understand your question, can you clarify?

Do you mean your processor is running at full load since you've put in the new card? Or do you mean something else when you say the cpu is maxed out?

When i run a program or attempt to play a game, my computer finds it hard to cope and my CPU flyes up. It has only begun to occur after i installed the Graphics Card.

try replacing your old card back in and see if you get that problem. Or try uninstalling your drivers, run driver cleaner pro, and redownload and reinstall the driver

I think its his ram, i have 2.25GB he has 0.25GB, see the diffrence! Atleast 1GB is neccesary to run well

He might have the TURBO CACHE technology as it is LE, that uses system memory to make up for the little native-onboard ram and uses system mem to make up. I can do something similar in bios buts its totally not worth it, slows entire pc down, CPU not running fast or "MAXED" i think was his word


God i hope im right

having 256 ram has nothing to do with his cpu going 100% load all the time

No i meant TURBO CACHE takes the existing ram and uses it. In my experience if you enable gfx card to use system memory for agp textures then CPU usage increases and gives a laggy feel. He does have a 6200Le, also more feed back is needed from him.

Doesnt sound anything like ram to me... sounds like hes saying his CPU is running at 100% all the time... i would reinstall drivers first off... Trying the old card again may also help identify the issue

Do you have a spyware/virus scan running, this will spike my CPU usage for a while.

Did you have an ON Board Vid card? If so did you disable it?

I believe this to be as mentioned above about the turbocache. The gfx card is using his onboard ram and in most cases 128 or more so then there is very little left over less than 128. Thusly the cpu can't interact with the hard-drive that good meaning lack of speed.
