  1. GPU spikes and high energy usage


    Hi,

    so, it's been about 2-3 mounths that my pc started to register some high energy usage (like in the image below) and very frequent GPU spiking, causing

    software choking and one of them immediatly crashes (Blender 2.80). Spiking occurs when doing something minimally demandind.

    My PC is new, it is less than 1 year old, it has already been dusted and it's configs are:

    i7 8700 3.2 GHz, 24 GB RAM, B360 TUF Gaming, GPU Geforce GTX1080, 700W power supply (which supplies cpu, 25'' 60Hz IPS monitor, small tablet, mouse and keyboard).

    I don't think i have install any important driver that would bug so much my pc. The energy usage register varies a lot! But normally goes 'high' and 'very high' mainly for Photoshop, Goggle Chrome and any 'bigger' software I'm using.

    What could be that?

  2. Lag Spikes caused by CPU usage drops and GPU usage spikes after Windows 10 April update

    Since the April 10th update for Windows 10, my laptop has been suffering from lag spikes that occur during simple tasks such as browsing the internet.

    When looking at the task manager during these spikes, I can see that the CPU usage drops to around 10% while the GPU usage increases to close to 100%. I looked at what programs were using large portions of the GPU which turned out to be the 'Desktop window
    manager' and the 'Client server runtime process'.

    I've seen that other people have had a similar problem with the recent update, but not much in the way of solutions as of yet. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Thanks,

    Jason

    GPU usage spiking with mouse movements.

    Hi,

    Conflicts with a third-party startup program is one of the possible reasons why you are having a high GPU usage when moving your mouse. For us to assist you better, kindly answer the questions below:

    • Have you made any changes to your computer prior to this issue?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?
    • Which version and OS build number of Windows 10 is currently installed? To check, press the
      Windows key, type winver, and press the
      Enter
      key.
    • Do you have a third-party security software installed?

    Meanwhile, you can try to run your computer in clean boot and check if you will still encounter the same issue. This helps eliminate software conflicts that occur when you install a program or an update or when you run a program in Windows 10. You can follow
    the steps in this
    link
    to run your computer in clean boot.

    Note: Please go through the section: How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting
    of the Kb article to boot the computer in normal startup after fixing the issue.

    We'll be looking forward to your response.

  4. GPU spikes and high energy usage

    high cpu usage

    After downloading windows 10, anytime I run any programs, I get high CPU usage. It does not matter whether it is google chrome, task manager, playing games, whatever. Anything seems to spike the CPU usage. I have already run malwarbytes and my antivirus
    programs and find no viruses. Any suggestions? Thanks.
