I am using windows 7 ultimate on a tablet. The CPU runs nearly at 100% when I play any kind of video with most of the usage coming from internet explorer 9. Even when I had IE8 the usage was exactly the same.

I have tried adjusting everything I could think and find on the internet. Probably could have done a little more with svchost.exe but there is barely any usage being taken up by that executable.

I just got the tablet in March. It has a Intel media graphics card, Intel Atom N450 processor at 1.66 GHz, 2 GB of ram

Any good thoughts?

Thanks!

I'm assuming the videos you are trying to view a flash videos (e.g. YouTube, etc.)?

I have a laptop with somewhat comparable specs (ThinkPad w/ a Celeron M @ 1.6Ghz, 2GB RAM, ATI Radeon 200M), and I have the same issue; I believe the problem is that your tablet is simply not powerful enough to run these things comfortably. Please note that my laptop is about 5 years old, so I don't know how the processor architecture compares to the Atom.

In any case, you could try using Firefox or Chrome to see if they may be more efficient.


EDIT: fixed spelling error

its a 32 bit win 7.

i am starting to believe as well that it could be the hardware simply not being able to keep up with the video playing. netflix, youtube, etc... all with ie9 cause the cpu to stay around 100%.
