How to get the cause of high CPU usage by DPC / Interrupt

Recommended Posts


I thin think this is a hardware issue with your laptop.

This site also mentions issues with the silent mode (look at the DPC checker tool picture) and CPU throttling:

Contact the Samsung support in this case.

this is ok. DPCs and interrupts are used by the system all the time so the values are ok.

Are you sure? it wasn't there until recently, but i'll take your word for it. Thanks again for the help, it's appreciated.

Hi Andre!

First, I want to thank you for the tutorial, I am "banging my head" because of this problem.

Whenever I use a torrent application (Utorrent, Tixati, etc) my computer freezes for 1 to 3 seconds from time to time.

I have reinstalled Windows, removed the Anti virus, updated the network card (Realtek 8112L) driver among other things, nothing worked.

I think the problem is in "tcpip.sys - function : TcpPeriodicTimeoutHandler"

I uploaded the ETL (7z compressed )file to my dropbox folder and sent the link to you in a PM, if you have some time, I would be very grateful to you.

Again, many thanks!

edit: The Motheboard is a Asus P7P55D-E

yes, the TCPip.sys is the cause:

it generates this huge latency. I can see that the Rt64win7.sys is involved and this is the driver for your Realtek® 8112L Gigabit LAN controller. The driver version is from 2011 (7.046.0610.2011). Try the latest version:

Does it also happen without "NetLimiter 3"?

I will disable NetLimiter and test again.

Thanks :) !

edit: Some hours have passed, and nothing has happened, thanks for the Netlimiter tip Andre, you are trully magic :thumbup !

I just find it strange, Netlimiter just logs and limits the traffic.

If it comes back (even with Netlimiter disabled) I will ask again for advice.

Again, many thanks Andre :) !

the tool hooks into the network stack and such tools can cause issues. Nice to hear that it is fixed with the new driver and net limiter removed :)
