I need help on why it does not show 100% CPU usage, but the LXDE monitor reflects 100%. I have installed Ubuntu on my Linux laptop because I am experiencing soft lockups. However, after turning my laptop on, it is still slow and freezes for several seconds.
LXDE monitor shows 100 percent CPU using all the time
If the CPU shows 100% usage then it means you have on the computer some memory intensive applications that are taking up a lot of system memory. To improve the speed of your computer, you will need to do the following:
You will need to look up those applications that may be exhausting the system memory and therefore slowing down its operations, and if the not crucial remove them.
If the problem of slowness is as a result of the computer running on low memory, you will need to upgrade the RAM capacity of the computer to improve its performance. Make sure that your computer has a minimum of 3GB RAM for it to be faster.
