One frustrating problem: I/o wait
Hi all. I have a big frustrating problem since i'm using Ubuntu as my first OS on my HP laptop (DV2172). After about one or two hours of use i see the I/O wait time going very high in my system monitor gnome applet, the system slow down becoming unstable. The only thing i can do is give a CTRL+ATL+BACKSPACE to solve the problem. The problem remains also after a format so i think is due to my hardware config. Hard disk should be a SAMSUNG HM120JI.
Any idea? Thank you.
