    System Interrupts consuming high CPU since upgrade to Windows 10

    Hi everyone. New guy here.
    Since upgrading to W10 from W7 SP1, I constantly have 'System interrupts' consuming half of my Process CPU% on taskmgr. It is also consistently in the upper 30s in Details percent. I have scoured the internet for solutions of which I tried several. NO LUCK.
    No luck on MS support site either.

    I had this on a tablet after the latest Windows 10 update. From what I discovered it's usually a driver conflict that causes this.
    In my case it was the display driver that had been replaced during the upgrade.

    Check all device drivers are the correct versions for a start.
