CPU is high due to hardware interrupts: Need advice

The CPU on one of my machines is running high (around 90%). "Process Explorer" indicates that "hardware interrupts" is the culprit. The problem is that the event viewer doesn't pinpoint the problem and all my hardware is fully functional.

I'm virus, trojan and adware free. Nothing is in my hijackthis log that looks fishy. I've installed nothing new.

Any idea how to problem solve this issue?

System:
WinXp Pro
1.7 GHz
512 MB Ram
WD 120 GB hard disk
250 MB zip disk
Nvidia Geforce2 GTS
Verbatim (liteon) cdrw
Pioneer dvr-105 dvd-r/w
Linksys ethernet adapter

Does your motherboard have on board functions which you aren't using? (onboard video, audio, ethernet, etc) Disable them from the bios and rely on the PCI version or vice versa.

If not you can try moving you PCI devices around in different slots.

Thanks! I think changing the pci slots for my ethernet or sound card did it.
