This is my 1st time in a forum and I'm looking forward to some help!!!
I have an HP Compaq Presario SR1610NX
Very basic setup.
I am trying to install a fresh copy of Windows XP Home. I have a Windows XP Service Pack 3 CD and can successfully format and install the operating system.
From the second the operating system starts up after installation, the processor immediately begins to run between 95-100%. I haven't even installed any drivers yet.
I've tried running in Safe Mode and the processor is still running between 95-100%.
What can cause this.
I've heard there are issues with Service Pack 3 and AMD processors but shouldn't the service pack be disabled in Safe mode?
