Default Vista is gunna burn my processor

I just switched to Vista today cause of XP problems. I noticed right away that Vista was using 90% CPU usage for simple tasks that XP would breeze through. Is this normal?

And with WMP11 changing a song makes it go up to 35-50% CPU usage?

Im thinking of switching back to XP cause my normal temps WERE 30-35, now with Vista its 40-45.

Hmmm...what about when you scroll the task manager down, nothing else using any CPU? Vista shouldn't stress it MUCH more than XP..

Also, I couldn't help but laugh at you're scratch pad in the dock...."christina has a nice ass" lmao

The thing that slows Vista down is if you don't have much RAM. Going from 1GB to 2GB on Home Premium is like night and day.

Hummm..............I hear some users say that but in my experience with two seperate machines running Vista home premium it runs much faster than XP.
Switching between applications, opening applications, bootup, switching users, etc..........all much faster than XP.

Well I have Ultimate, would it really make a difference in speed if I switch to home premium?

I wouldn't think so..............as long as the hardware is up to the task it shouldn't make a difference. Unless Ultimate is running alot of background garbage..........

Stuff like this is why I plan on getting Vista for the next computer I build, hopefully during the summer or at the very latest summer of 2008.

Have you installed the chipset drivers and etc. i've heard that its much faster with the correct drivers. Im not too sure about the cpu usage though.

I installed everything correctly, but it dosnt matter now. I put XP back on. So much better for now, atleast until XP gets kick outta the picture.

Come to think of it, being Vista...what were you checking temps with? You might have been getting false readings

Matt

EDIT: lmao, this is like a puzzle everytime I open this thread I see something new in the screenshot...and I quote "I love 2 fart"

Even if the readings were wrong, I could feel the heat coming off my case. And when I start my computer (b4 windows starts to load) it shows my temp.

What's the minimum amount of RAM Vista can support? Isn't it like 4gigs or something?

I don't get you? Minimum? I'm sure you could run it with 512, but 1gb is the normal.

Default Re: Vista is gunna burn my processor

Well, the maximum is like 64gb or something...it's a daft amount that we won't get to before the next Windows release

Matt

EDIT: OK, Just looked it up...it seems the maximum varies from version to version...
In order, Home Basic, Home Premium, Business, Enterprise and Ultimate
Maximum RAM (64-bit version) 8 GB 16 GB 128+ GB 128+ GB 128+ GB

You're Right, the 32-bit versions all have a limit of 4gb...But if 64 bit is available you should use it..
Sorry we're going a bit off topic here lol
