When I run sys monitor, it will show that one of the two cores will be running at or near 100%, and alternate over from moment to moment between cpu1 and cpu2....but when I check processes, nothing is running at more than 4%, totalled together?!? I tried shutting off compiz, restarting the computer several times, disabling wifi and disconnecting the LAN, quitting mintupdate, everything I could think of. It is currently still sitting here in front of me [i'm on my second lappy typing] running about as fast as a PII with Vista on it. Have had absolutely no problems with it over the last month or two, until now, and the first time I had it happen it just cleared up on it's own [after doing all of the above with no meaningful proof any of it was the culprit]. When it isn't happening, compiz runs likes it was made for this laptop though, every effect possible running without a hitch.
Any one have a similar experience, or know what could be causing it? Or can tell me what info I need to provide for others to troubleshoot? Thanks in advance.
LinuxMint 6 Felicia, fully updated
Nvidia 9600M GT
*edit*-shutting OFF system monitor made a slight improvement. And it isn't overheating, GPU was at a relatively cool 40'C.....
