    Well this is a weird one. I did a bootcamp install of Win7 on my new i5 and noticed one of the cpu cores was always pegged at 100%. Tried everything to fix it via drivers and no go. Blew away Win7 and did an XP install, same thing!

    Finally narrowed it down to the audio jack. If I remove the optical cable from the headphone jack in the back of the system then the cpu drops down to zero right away. Tried my analog audio cable, same thing. 100% cpu usage. I found someone else on the Apple bootcamp forum with the exact same issue.

    Anyone have an idea on this one? I've seen some weird stuff with my systems before but this is a new one on me! Doesn't happen with OSX that I can see so I'm assuming maybe some sort of driver issue? Thanks!

    P.S. Yes I'm using the bootcamp driver install from the OSX CD. In case you're wondering.

    As a contributing member of these forums I find that I am obligated to share my resolution to this issue in the case that people are still having the issue or will refer to these forums in the future. Thanks very much, but after looking through a dozen of similar threads that were of no help I hope that this does not dissapoint.

    I simply updated to the latest version of Bootcamp, currently version 2.2, which specifically offers a patch for this issue.

    I certainly appreciate the feedback but will this work on the new iMac's, specifically the i5? I'm asking as the version of Bootcamp on my new system is 3.01. Thanks!
