The drive is very quiet, its as if its not being used when defragging, however diskmon keeps scrolling the screen. I do have 2 HDs in there, one ATA (boot) and the one I think is the culprit (SATA) how can I tell which is which in DiskMon? I see a disk 1 and disk 2 being reported on. Disk 0 is constantly being written to DiskMon with a lot of Read/Write messages. Interrupts stay the same when I hit pause on Defrag, but it doesnt get to a high % until I start the defrag.

I uploaded a pic above of the Proc Exp. It is the interrupts taking up all of the CPU.... Points to hardware?

@Synetech - So it looks similar to your pic, not sure if I can desribe it, bar chart on left is 100% red, graph chart the red and green lines are essentially the same, green and red same plots. Do you need a pic of this?

@spuder - Image attached to OP. Sorry for the cell pic, the PC is in SAFEMODE with no networking

@spuder What is bit rot? The System Idle is supposed to be at 99% if the PC is not doing anything, but the CPU performance should also be at <1% but its pegged at 50% (1 CPU running at 100% in dual core cpu)

Im looking at the task manager, while looking at the Processes tab, there is nothing going but CPU usage at the bottom shows 50%. When I switch to the Performance tab once CPU is going at 100% the other is quiet. I cannot see the HDD light, this drive has never worked with the IDE light in the PC, broken since I bought it and hooked it up (tried many times to get it to work). Let me hit pause on defrag while in SAFE MODE and see what happens. When not in safe mode I believe it stayed at 50%
