Ok I dont really know who to explain this but here we go!!!

I just installed 9.10 and randomly the volume gauge starts to act up like it acts like it is trying to Turn up the Volume or sometimes even down. When it does this the Keyboard freezes up and i cannot click on the Applications, Places, or System. I can open Firefox but yet i can only use the Mouse/ Touchpad w.e. I dont understand why it would do this.
