    Windows 7 cpu gadget not displaying percent of usage
    « on: February 15, 2013, 07:24:10 PM »
    Im running windows 7 sp1 6gb ram core i3 2350m .

    I been using the black glass cpu meter and recently after restarting my pc the percent on ram and cpu is blank but it still works just no percent usage. I uninstalled it and reinstall but still not working.

    All other gadgets work.

    Thanks

    MS dropped support for all their gadgets awhile back due to security concerns...
    You may want to try a 3rd party app for your needs...
    A quick search yielded a bunch of options...

    I've used the regular CPU Meter gadget for months.  I presume this is not the same as your "black glass cpu meter".  I've had no issues with it.  However, we do now need to weigh using gadgets vs. using a 3rd party app due to the security issue patio mentioned.

      The regular cpu meter works and shows the percent, but the black glass cpu meter aint showing it. its post to us the same coding as the regular cpu meter. Black cpu meter

        I copy the en-US folder from the cpu gadget that windows 7 has and pasted it in the black glass cpu meter folder over writing the en-US folder and it has the percent readings now, it just the percent font isnt the same that the black glass meter had, but its good enough.
