    CPU Spikes and PC Lag


    So my PC is running normally without any lag spikes in Videos, Games, and everything UNTIL I open up World of Warcraft, then the lag spikes return.

    Would anyone have a clue about what causes this ?

    Hello there everyone, I am writing here in hope of getting some help finding fixing my PC.

    My Problem :
    - PC Is getting random lag spikes ca. every 10 seconds that last up to 0.5 second each.
    - My CPU usage will spike when this happens. Please check these pictures as an example. (Screenshot - 40fc837a6a9c987962cd5e2cdd1a8be5 - Gyazo, and Screenshot - 185b7af6fe1ead1c4ed4a36f9cd0737e - Gyazo ).
    - This happens when i'm browsing the internet, watching a youtube video, or a livestream, even as I'm writing this text, I am getting lag spikes, and also when playing game.

    My PC Specs -
    - Windows 10 Home. Build 16299.371. Version 1709.
    - Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 3GB, Driver version 397.31.
    - ASUS Prime Z270-K Motherboard.
    - Intel Core i5-7600 CPU @ 3.50 GHz

    Does anyone have any solutions that might fix the problem ? Or is it even my CPU there's something wrong with, or is it my hard drives that are corrupt ?


    :)

  3. services.exe CPU spikes caused by pc suite update

    I have windows 2000 SP4 (yes, i know i need to upgrade). I recently got the update to PC Suite. I now have version 6.86.9.0

    every minute or two, task manager shows a CPU spike to 100% that lasts about 3 seconds. the task is services.exe

    naturally i started stopping services until the intermittent spikes stopped. the culprit? a service called 'ServiceLayer', which runs the NclUSBSrv.exe and NclRSSrv.exe processes.

    as soon as i stopped it, the CPU lag spikes go away. after about an hour, it seemed to run fine, then i opened up nokia pc suite, it started the service again, and the CPU lag spikes came back.

    obviously nokia processes are causing some problems, and it has something to do with a change in the last update.

    nokia, can you please look into this or tell me how to fix?

    thx.

    ntoskrnl.exe causing high cpu usage

    Hi!

    My PC sometimes get lag spikes because of ntoskrnl.exe is causing much of my CPU.

    It sometimes spikes to about 20-90 % and it happens randomly. Not just playing games, but also when doing nothing in Windows.

    It stays like this for a second or so and goes back Down to below 1 %.

    I have tried to format my pc and update my drivers, but nothing seems to work.

    Hey Masterchiefxx17,

    I used to have "Driver Genius" to update my drivers, so i thought that all my drivers were up to date, but after making this post i installed "Driver Booster 5", and it updated 10 drivers that were from 2017, I haven't used it so much afterwards because it was late, and right now it's early morning, but I will keep on testing and see if i still get lags. Until now it seems fine tho.
