If you have a UEFI BIOS a small partition formatted as FAT32 is required.
Have you tried running
Code:
lsusb
Don't worry about the kernel or the disks unless you have confirmed that USB is OK (or not).
Change one thing at a time.

That lsusb looks OK
Guessing that you have a Primax keyboard & a logitech mouse - and nothing else.
You can look up most devices in https://wiki.debian.org/HowToIdentifyADevice/USB or http://www.linux-usb.org/usb.ids, using those hex digits.

Your devices aren't listed though, which doesn't necessarily mean anything.

Are you still having problems?

One suggestion would be to boot a live distro from USB or DVD and see if it still has problems.
This would rule out your HD.

If a live version doesn't work it comes down to hardware.
(I trust you've tried a non-KDE live version?)

If something like Debian fails, then you need to test things like RAM.

Bro, i appreciate your response i will say this one more time though. they are stuck in uninterpretable processes from a virtual box instance and within that virtual box instance a program kept closing and i kept reopening it. Which in turn spit out all these processes.

From what i have read. i need to send a signal to them to end them, that is how i do it but i have no idea how to go about that.

get the PID of that process/es then inspect with lsof and see which files that processes is working on.

lsof -p <PID>

hey cowboy, i truly appreciate your wisdom into this situation. here is the terminal lines.

Code:
/home/xd# lsof -p 2
COMMAND  PID USER   FD      TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF NODE NAME
kthreadd   2 root  cwd       DIR    8,1     4096    2 /
kthreadd   2 root  rtd       DIR    8,1     4096    2 /
kthreadd   2 root  txt   unknown                      /proc/2/exe
here is another one also, there is about 40+

Code:
migration  32 root  cwd       DIR    8,1     4096    2 /
migration  32 root  rtd       DIR    8,1     4096    2 /
migration  32 root  txt   unknown                      /proc/32/exe
is this helpful at all?

I did a bit of googling for you and realized that this is a kernel process similar with PID 1. So you cannot kill or remove it and should not even attempt to. It gets started by the kernel itself denoted by its brackets. I am not a kernel hacker but I think we are barking a a wrong tree here. If something is bothering you, maybe find I/O, network or hardware issues instead or maybe a rogue user-space processes. I don't think it is the cause of perceived high CPU usage.

My 2cents.

I appreciate you a ton man, like i said your wisdom is welcome. I see what your saying and i agree. It was a program that was sending stuff on line, the program that was crashing and i was using in virtual box to run it. So that makes perfect sense, i did read about something i/o in the past. i can signals to these process to get to get them leave but i don't know how. There is programs but i have no idea how to use them.

i look at your post and your join date. i do appreciate you man you don't insert yourself to often so thank you again.
