Laptop gets too hot even when idle and shows 100% cpu usage.

HP Recommended
Omen 15t
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My Laptop specs are:

Omen 15t (2019)



256Gb SSD

16gb DDR4 ram

GTX 1660 ti 

Ive had this laptop for almost 4 months now.

So my Omen 15t after a few minutes of running suddenly shows 50-60% CPU usage in the omen command center with temps rising to 82 degrees Celsius (on Charge) . After opening the task manager to see the running programs, the task manager shows 100% CPU usage which then drops quite quickly  to 10-15%. After this when checking system temps on the omen command center, it shows 15-20 degrees sudden drop in temps which after a few mins drops to 50-55 degrees (on charge) and 40-47 degrees Celsius (on battery). These sudden spikes with temps and CPU usage are the issue Im facing.

Also task manager itself closes when a spike like this occurs. Its probably a software issue i think...

Thank You!
