Task manager shows SYSTEM running at 100%

Dec 25, 2007 4:29PM PST

Two year old Gateway DX machine running XT experienced electrical surge (house breaker tripped) the other day. Machine would not start back up upon retry, but started on following day. USB ports and sound now do not work and SYSTEM is running at 100%. Have run Spybot and AVG. Tried to reset to date two weeks earlier, but that would not work. What's going on? Suggestions?
