There might be some problems desoldering .. due to led free solder being used on most modern components.
If you encounter this ie solder wont melt to remove failed component.. then you might have to use micro drills to remove the item.
Can be purchased in most elctronic stores as well as a hand tool to rotate them.. be careful though.
A jewelers lense and a mechanisom for holding it over the electronic parts is invaluable too.

The most obvious one might be svchost.. but could have been anyone of them!
The HP Envy is a good tablet also, but it is a Windows 8 tablet. Not sure if you're looking for Windows or Android here.

OK, I have an odd one for you, something I cannot readily explain.
Running Windows 7 (64bit) with Google Chrome, all updates current etc.
Using Chrome when watching youtube videos only, the CPU and RAM usage spikes to 100% immediately, and sits there. After a few minutes, the entire system shuts down. It can be restarted no problem, but any other pages, even multiple pages open ( I have seven open now for instance), and it is no problem, the usage sits around 10-20% and the RAM is always around 40-45%.
Your input is appreciated (and may earn you a new avatar...)
Could be Malwayre on your system.. We have been seeing a lot of this recently at work!
Open the task manager and identify which processes are spiking your cpu!
Im looking for a program that monitors my internet connection strength, drops, disconnection etc.. pretty much a monitoring system for signal strength.
a graph, a bar or percent number for incoming/outgoing bandwidth or a report of every x mins etc..
The cable internet companies have a system to monitor, i hope the program is available to everyone.
Anything you know of?
Thanks in advance.

I run avast, spybot, and AVG free versions, as well as Malwarebytes now. I used to run Bitdefender, but found it to be ineffective for paid anti-virus when free was doing just as good a job.
It's an Intel Duo Core 3.16GHz with 4GB of RAM. It is getting a bit dated and really needs a good formatting, but I have been lax of late. It runs W7 64 bit. It's a good system, and I never had any issues before I loaded Chrome (I used to use IE9.. gasp), but only noticed the stalling and excessive use issue after using Chrome.
