Hardware Interrupt hogging CPU process

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by Scottymillotty, Nov 15, 2006.

  1. Have a SBS2003 server that's been running very slow.

    Was able to see in task manager the cpu was taking a beating but there was
    no process being used.

    Downloaded Process Explorer which showed up that the cpu is being used at
    abouut 50% when the system is idle and that it was the hardware interrupt
    causing this.

    There has been no new hardware added or driver updates, nothing shows up in
    event viewer or device man.

    Does anyone know of a way to pinpoint what could be causing this?

    I'm pretty sure it must be a hardware error but would like to hear anyone
    elses thoughts on a way to diagnose this.

    Thanks in advance.
