Well to be honest with you, I just can't pin point the problem... its really frustrating really.
I'm using Intel core i7 870 @ 2.93GHz atm. Actually, I'll list full specs here:
- Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
- Intel core i7 870 @ 2.93GHz
- 8GB RAM
- GeForce GTX460
- 2 x HDD (1TB and 500GB)
- Nvidia/Realtek High Def Audio
Moreover, what I mean by "high" CPU is when my CPU usage is around 10% which, I think its not even high.
Firefox plugin uses the most CPU (5%) and when playing any media player/video player/games, it only uses 2~5% CPU.
So yeah.. even I understand your explanation, I still don't understand why this is happening to my PC.
On an i7, or an i3, 10% CPU utilization isn't high enough to be a problem. I still suspect your USB port, but CPU power isn't the problem by itself.
Unfortunately, I don't have any good ideas. You should try researching this elsewhere because somebody somewhere must have some answers. Have you considered an inexpensive add-in USB port?
