Lately I've been having problems with my ubuntu machine. It is incredibly quiet, even though ALL settings are at 100%. Today, I ran the top command, and this was the result:


top - 21:53:02 up 3 days, 17:47, 2 users, load average: 2.41, 2.37, 2.30

From past experiences, rebooting/powercycling doesn't help any either, and it's been going on for quite a while.

I'm not sure if they are related, but whenever I go to play video, it flashes alot. The video is barely playable because of it. It all started when I downloaded some codec.
