When using mostly firefox,
the npviewer.bin takes 70% of the cpu and even 100% and then locks the system. Not all sites on firefox but amazon, ebay, met office. Close the window and the npviewer.bin cpu use is not even registered using top.
This seems to be a problem in 11.1, have not tried 11.2 yet.
Problem: When I turn my computer on it shows no video signal. The power light is on and the VGA cord is completely in. After about 5 minutes I'll unplug and restart my computer. Sometimes when I do this I can hear the fan blowing at full power.
Hi, I have a multi-boot setup with two external USB HDs. One external hard drive takes a long time to power off[10 to 15sec]? If not power off competly on a restart, it will send me to grub rescue[device not present?] Can I increase the time that the computer is powered off during a restart? Right now I have do a shutdown, wait, and power back on. I am on Ubuntu 13.10 64b right now.
I am trying to get a computer to run off a DC battery. The computer seems to start fine (the CPU fan spins and the hard drive whirs), but nothing displays on the monitor. It just stays blank, as if there is no signal being sent to it.
I have a 5 year old acer laptop, it was working fine untill about a week ago. The problem is that once its connected to power it takes 2-3 mins for the battery light to power and for a weird reason while thats off the power button doesn't work.
