What was the problem?

Cooling fan, it was dead. I kinda tap it a little, blow on it and started to work again, I know I have to replace it now. But since then my pc is working fine!!

Yep, well at least I know now that, another cause of laptop working slow and cpu at 100, may mean that your cooling fan is dead :)
