  2. High CPU usage

    Hi Tusar,

    The Task manager shows high CPU usage for core Windows process which can be used by other application. In order find out which applications might be using more resources through these services, I would suggest you to open 'Resource monitor' and check. In
    task manager, go to the 'Performance' tab and click on the option 'Open Resource monitor' option at the bottom. Click on the CPU tab and then select the processes which showed high CPU usage in task manager. No expand the 'Services', associated handles section
    and post us a screenshot so that we can check the details and help you accordingly.

    In the meantime, I would also suggest you to boot the PC in safe mode and check if the issue persists. Refer to this article:

    High CPU Usage Null Process

    There was high CPU usage even if there is nothing going on and when I checked Task Manager, a "null" process with the blue cog icon was using 50%~90% of my CPU. When I try to end the process, it prompted me with the "If you end this process, Windows will
    shut down or stop working" warning. I did and Windows rebooted. The problem seemed to be solved but few hours later it came back.

    I right clicked the process and went to details, it just showed be svhost.exe, but no description. The file location is completely normal. There are other service hosts that are running normally. I checked all the forums and found no help.

    Also something to note: Sometimes, it just displays high CPU usage and the fans doesn't even turn on.

    How do I show hidden process that eat up high CPU Usage on my Windows

    "System" process with high CPU usage

    I have exactly the same issue (high CPU usage) on a brand new HP ProBook 440 G5 (i7-8550U, pre-installed Win 10 Pro).

    I am pretty sure that there is a problem with audio drivers when the computer wakes up from a sleep mode. I first observed that process flow.exe (audio bloatware provided by HP/Conexant) was consuming (after waking up) ~10–15 % CPU. Here's what I did:

    • I have updated Windows to 1709, build 16229.251 and installed all updates --> Nothing has changed.
    • I have updated BIOS to the latest version provided by HP. --> Nothing has changed.
    • I have run Windows troubleshooting and HP Support Assistant checks --> No problems found, nothing has changed
    • I have manually updated Conexant ISST Audio Drivers (via Device Manager -> Update drivers). Windows installed a newer version. -->
      CPU usage by flow.exe has disappeared, but process called System in thread ACPI.sys+0x21cb0 started consuming ~20 % CPU.
    • I have uninstalled all Conexant software&drivers and manually installed generic High Definition Audio Device drivers provided by Microsoft (Driver Date: 21.02.2018). --> ACPI.sys+0x21cb0 still consumes ~20 % CPU.

    Same issues are discussed in these threads on HP site:


    The result is I cannot use sleep mode (as advised by this post:

    ).
