    System process - high CPU usage after some time

    Hi everyone,
    in Task Manager, the "System" sometimes starts eating 14~20% CPU and that persists until a reboot.
    "System interrupts" (which is a pseudo process?) seems to do the same.

    It doesn't happen from boot, and I don't know what triggers it.

    Google searches suggest a driver may be buggy.

    But which one?

    How can I find it out?

    Could I debug the system process using a tool to see what function a thread is in, for example? Somehow?

    It's specific for that device only due to its unique configuration. You just have to wait for another firmware update pack for August.
