I don't understand what you are writing. Can you please explain more?

It would also make this easier to read if you used appropriate punctuation.

i accidentally got into the bios on my laptop when i accidentally pressed f10 instead of f11 i pressed escape and i got a message asking if i would like to discard changes pressed yes so does that mean nothing was changed in bios? 

 

i did the system recovery after the laptop froze and put me on a screen when i did a hard reboot of the computer now the cpu usage seems high

You discarded your changes so nothing was changed.

That's not clear. 

 

Did the system recovery work or not?  If not, what error does it give?

 

How do you know the CPU usage is high and why is it so important?

yes the system recovery worked and i was wondering if i accidentally did something in the bios to make the cpu usage high or when the os froze if that was the cause

You discarded and nothing was changed in the BIOS, so the high usage is not caused by BIOS.

 

Go to Task Manager > Details and check what is using the CPU.

 

Note: You might see that System Idle Process is using Lot of CPU (probably more than 90%), the process is designed to use lot of CPU power so you should not worried.

What operating system are you running?

 

What is the make and model of this computer?

Open the Task Manager and click on the Performance tab.

 

Click on the Resource Monitor button at the bottom of the page.

 

Click on the CPU tab and see what process is hogging the CPU.

Please do what I suggested so we can find what is using so much CPU.

That's certainly negligible.

 

The 25% spikes are probably negligible as well but you should check what causes them through the performance tab of your Task Manager by sorting it by CPU usage.

 

Note that the fact that the CPU is used to allow the system and applications to operate is normal and that's its purpose.  You should only investigate the situation when there's an actual problem.
