Mouse CPU System Monitor


Hi

I am using Ubuntu 10.04, having a lot of problems, have loaded the operating system three times now.

The mouse icon keeps freezing, the CPU on system monitor is showing 100% most of the time that is when the mouse sticks.

The hardware is fine, it only sticks when CPU shows 100%.

Processes on system monitor is showing all is sleeping.

There is no programs activated your server or desktop sharing.

Normally I have had up to five activities going on at the same time even video editing without the machine freezing or mouse delaying positioning on screen.


Thanks EAI

Open a terminal and run top. When the machine freezes, you will see what is using all the cpu.

100% cpu

Hi

All other versions of Ubuntu I have used are hardly a drain on the cpu even with programs open, its the spiking on the cpu that slows down the operating system.

Even video editing uses 100% of cpu speed but dose not impair the pc, but now it dose for no reason even when there is no programs opened.

This is what terminal produced.

Thanks EAI

100% cpu pgy0

Hi

Thanks for that command for terminal.

I ran Top and discovered it is a command called "phy0" that comes up for no reason, it appears for about a second or so then dissapears just to return, enough to mess up fuctions on the pc.


Thanks EAI
