Thinkpad Edge 15 CPU Problems Whilst Charging

2012-03-04, 10:20 AM

I've noticed I've had this problem for a while now where when I'm charging the laptop all of a sudden the CPU useage goes sky high to 80/90% when all I'm doing is using the internet or skype (especially when using skype). I take the charger out and then everything returns to normal. This only happens sometimes when charging, not the all the time which is odd.. Anyone got any ideas?

Hi VishaID,


There's at least one other thread here with the same issue.


Are you using the 65 watt adapter?
