I don't have any other OS running on this computer and when i checked the monitor as muungwana suggested acpid is at 0% and the highest is firefox which said 11.50%. So according to all of you all everything looks normal so luckily there is a computer shop within 20 miles of here that specializes in linux, i'll have to take it there. Thanks for all of your help you guys are great but my lack of knowledge is probably the main problem here maybe next time before i buy something i should take time to learn about it
With regard to the statement in blue
, I didn't agree with that. You show 99%
CPU usage, and the combined total or the application
usage is only about 10%
of that, so again I ask, "What's eating all those cycles?"
That's anything but normal
. When my CPU usage is way up there, usually the top three
account for at least 95%
of the total. If one app is slowing down the whole shebang, I can kill it and get back to normal speeds on the machine, as a whole.
You also have as much swap
being used as RAM
, which is not normal for a Linux system, unless one app, showing heavy CPU and RAM usage is swapping something out to keep its process running, but you don't show any of that with the applications shown.
