NEVER MIND: I THINK I FIXED IT. Nvidia Forceware was installed and being a jerk on my new rig. Gone now though!
I really hope this is a common problem.

I just built a new rig:
cpu-A64 3700+ San Diego
mobo-Asus a8n-sli
mem-Patriot 2gb (dual channel)
vga- EVGA 7800GT (factory oc)
hdd- Western Digital Raptor 74gb x 2
psu - Scythe Kamariki 550
OS - Win XP

...and the problem I'm having is this. With only backgroung processes running, task manager (and speedfan) is telling me cpu usage information that contantly fluctuates between 0% (where it should be) and up to as much as 22%. System Idle Process shows 99% which it obviously shouldn't be if x% of cpu resources are being used.
Anyone had this problem before or know of it and how to fix it?
