High CPU Usage after graphics card upgrade or replace and WHEA-Logger Event ID: 17 logging in Event viewer.

The issue with high CPU usage occurs after upgrading the graphics card in an older motherboard.
This happens due to System interrupts and logging of error in the Event Viewer, as there is a conflict with the power management. The only option is to check for any BIOS updates and if there is none, you can disable the Windows power management to resolve the issue.

Go to Control Panel in the Start Menu.

Open Power Options in the Control Panel.





Select Change plan settings next to the power plan you want to set.



Select Change advanced power settings.



Select Change settings that are currently unavailable.



Set the Link State Power Management under PCI Express, select OFF and then click OK to save the changes.





This should also resolve the Event viewer error (WHEA-Logger Event ID: 17 - A corrected hardware error has occurred).
