So my issue is as the title says, my GPU is running 99% on startup. I tried uinstaling and reinstaling everything 7 times but still the same problem.

But you know whats funny? When i start the driver instalation when my PC is booted everything runs FINE after instaling is done, BUT when i turn off or even RESET the PC problem occurs again.(Iam tired of starting instalation on every PC startup)

I didnt get this problem when i bought card and when i had older drivers. Problem ocured from time to time when i got nevest drivers. My GPu Tweak program shows 99% GPU Usage on startup and as i said i TRIED reinstalling everything. I tried Beta drivers too. None did work after i reset PC, GPU at 99% and i need to run instalation guide AGAIN even when the PC says it HAS the drivers and instalation program of drivers tells me the same, but instalation starts anyways and after that GPU drops to 0% and everything runs cool.

When you first start up...this will happen to some extent. The MOM and CCC programs do their thing, then the usage drops.

note: Run Windows Update first..install the relevent 'optional' and 'recommended' updates.

If you have issues after installing AMD driver suites, this is one method you can try.

To perform a 'clean install' of AMD graphics drivers:

You should make a system restore point before attempting, just in case

1. IMPORTANT: All Windows Updates should be current, including the 'optional/suggested' updates
2. IMPORTANT: Disable all anti-virus/ad blockers/anti-malware/ anti-anything before trying to install
3. IMPORTANT: Netframework is required and must be the latest version. (from Windows Update)

Download the drivers for your computer to the desktop. Follow steps 1-5 ( http://support.amd.com/en-us/download ).
 Do not use 'auto-detect and install.

Delete existing drivers from your computer:

In computer control panel select 'uninstall a program'
For computers with Intel processors:
Select AMD install manager and choose 'express uninstall all AMD software'
Including the install manager.

For computers with AMD processors:
Select AMD install manager and 'custom uninstall' the graphics drivers and CCC only.

Reboot into 'safe mode'
In safe mode run Driver Fusion  http://treexy.com/ (free version).
Select AMD graphics, analyse and delete all it finds.

Reboot

Install the new driver suite.

Reboot

Use task manager to see which program is also loading the CPU. Nothing uses GPU time without CPU time.

Well okey Iam BACK again.
This time it began few minutes after my PC fully loaded up. I went on the internet, Skype turned on and BAM GPU Usage is 99% again.
This is in my opinion driver problem becouse I reinstaled it 8 times.

By the way, I ran driver installer again and everything works.

------
My issue is when PC is restarted or turned off and on.
