I am having trouble with my Win7 HTPC. I have found that when playing back media it would occasionally 'blip' when playing back videos due to the CPU usage being momentarily higher. I restarted the computer and it was fine, until the the computer went to sleep do the inactivity, then the problem would resurface. If the computer was restarted again, the problem goes away, until it goes to sleep and the problem will then repeat itself.
I narrowed down the issue to being svchost.exe having having higher CPU usage relating to services PlugPlay/Power in the DcomLaunch group. Does anyone know why this would happen only after resuming from sleep mode? The only thing that has been different about the computer was I recently installed a new video card.
Thank you for your assistance.
