Some Dell's have built in diagnostics that you can run.
You can also try this free utility to spot problems: http://www.sisoftware.co.uk/index.html?dir...n=sware_dl_3264
As I recall from my XP system - Task Manager would spike up to 14% when using it, but would quickly settle back to 0%

Once in the program, double click on taskmgr.exe and then on the Threads tab to see what's going on there. On my Vista system there's 3 taskmgr.exe threads, one ntdll.dll thread and 2 RPCRT4.dll threads. Only the taskmgr.exe threads show consistent activity.
