I have a serious problem in my laptop.It appears that something
fundamental is going wrong whenever I start a browser or a
graphics program.Then the load surges (I see it when I run a top
command),and the laptop (Dell Precision-M4600) is practically
useless.I have recently upgraded to Ubuntu 12.1.I have the impression that the
graphics card does not get along with Ubuntu. For example,when I
go to youtube then the system slows down immensely.The same
happens when I compile with gcc and have a plotting program open.
The truth is that the problem appeared before I upgraded to the
latest Ubuntu version,but only shortly before.In the past
everything was fine.Any ideas on a "solution"?My laptop
is practically useless.Thanks very much.
PS, I looked for additional drivers in the hardware part of the
administration section,but nothing helpful came up,I only got that
the ATI/AMD FGLRX graphics driver is proprietary and can not be installed.
