After running my PC for a few hours, I often run into problems with CPU Usage. The "System" process will spike up once every few minutes once it gets going. This causes the screen and the audio on the PC to freeze momentarily. It will make a loud buzzing sound, because the audio freezes. It will recover after that, until the next spike. This makes watching videos/playing games pretty irritating. 

 

I find that rebooting my PC usually pushes back the issue a first hours for whatever reason. 

 

I'll give any information that is needed.

Thanks for the quick reply. Should I wait until the CPU spikes occur, or just give my baseline for now?

svchost.exe     Process ID: 1200     User: SYSTEM     Domain: NT AUTHORITY     Path: C:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe

Memory Usage: 52 MB      Peak Memory Usage: 1.78 GB
 
You can use the following tool to investigate the processes underlying this item:  How to determine what services are running under a SVCHOST.EXE process - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial129.html .
 

Looking at your hard drive SMART data...I'm inclined to run the SeaTools For Windows diagnostic on your hard drive.  I would do this because the values reflected per Speccy for the C3 attribute of your Seagate drive...differ substantially from those I reflect for my own Seagate drive.  My drive reflects values of 120/120 for Current/Worst, which I understand to be without a problem...while you can see the values reflected for your drive below.    Generally, a value of 100/120/200/250 (one of those numbers) is considered to be good, while any values less than those could indicate a decline of some type.  Also...when looking at the SMART data, the Worst value should be higher than the Current, as I understand it.  My disclaimer is that I have no technical skills/attributes of any sort...I'm not an IT person and I don't do this for a living, either past or present.  I just use the tools I have (my brain and what I can read/understand) to try to make sense out of data presented.

 

Another comment I must pass on is the fact that Seagate disavows the accuracy of SMART data interpretations as presented by 3d-party tools...and strongly advocates using its SeaTools diagnostics for its drives, see Interpreting SMART Data .  I have no reason to disbelieve them and SeaTools is easily used...so I have no problem with running it to check the functional status of Seagate, Samsung, Maxtor hard drives (all now owned by Seagate).  Your values are below.

 

Attribute name: Hardware ECC Recovered     Real value: 0     Current: 46     Worst: 28     Threshold: 0

Looking at your installed applications...I would uninstall Bradford Persistent Agent and Game Booster because I don't believe that either provides any real value to users of such.  Possibly, there is a link between these two items and CPU usage reflected in the first item I listed...I can't say.

 

Your java install is outdated and I would uninstall all outdated versions and promptly update...or just removed Java totally.  Having outdated versions increases system vulnerability to malware.

Thank you for your time and overview. 

 

Like I said in the original post, I know it's the "System" process that's giving me all the trouble. After some searching around, it looks like that's a driver issue for most people. Is there a way I can see exactly what in "System" is causing an issue?

System is a process in NT "kernel mode" that contains most of the system threads and handles various basic system functions. A thread is a single sequence stream within a process...it is a basic unit of CPU utilization consisting of a program counter, a stack, and a set of registers. When Windows loads, the Windows kernel starts and runs in kernel mode to set up paging and virtual memory. It then creates some system processes and allows them to run in "user mode" but restricts their access to critical areas of the operation system.

Every process started by Windows, except for the System process, runs in user mode which is limited in terms of what system resources they have access to. The User mode processes must request use of the kernel by means of a system call in order to perform privileged operations on their behalf. Kernel mode has unrestricted access to system resources and controls scheduling, thread prioritization, interrupt handlers, memory management and the interaction with hardware. The system process cannot be terminated.

For more detailed information, please refer to:

Procexp -> System -> ACPI.sys 23270 -> google ->   FOUND THE ISSUE!

 

The problem was arising from a hardware problem, that is the fact that I substituted DVD with a Caddy for the HDD. The caddies have the possiblity to connect the SATA diagnostic pins to ground, see the small swich they have closer to the sata plug. Changing this configuration (diagnostic pin floating) i solved the issue!!

 

Check this link. I hope it's not a problem if i post here the link (it actually solved the problem)
