Ubuntu :: Mouse And System Freezing/lagging/hanging?

May 7, 2011

since installing 11.04 on a computer that was running 10.04 perfectly, the system hangs for a split second every 10 seconds or so. If you make little circles with the mouse pointer you will see it jump position when the computer hangs briefly. If you are listening to audio or watching video then this also hangs for the same very short length of time.

I had the exact same problem when I tired going to 10.10 and so had to go back to 10.04. I was hoping it may just be an issue with that version but it seems not. The computer is: 1.6GHz Intel Core Solo, 1GB Memory, the motherboard is a Jetway Mini ITX board with integrated Intel graphics. It has no problem running the 3D stuff in Unity (or any of the old gnome desktops). Changing to 2D or turning off desktop effects in 10.10 does nothing to solve the problem. 10.04 seems to be the last time Ubuntu worked properly with the computer.

Ubuntu Installation :: Freezing, Hanging, Blackouts And Being Unable To Boot With 10.4?

Jul 12, 2010

I am having problems with freezing, hanging, blackouts and being unable to boot with 10.4. After having replaced the hard drive 3 times, and after reading much about these problems, have decided to regress to 9.10. How do I do it? I am weary of cleaning my hard disk to download 9.10 in case it freezes in the middle of the process.

Ubuntu :: Won't Play Cd - Complete Error Log - Hanging / Freezing On Windows

Jan 4, 2011

my first impressions are that for all the dissing of Windows at least if I stick a CD in the tray it plays....I installed ubuntu 9.04 on a VM running alongside WindowXP and upgraded to 9.10. When I open rhythmbox and put a CD in the tray nothing happens..despite the book saying it will play automatically....after much googling I cannot find anything on this problem..most people are trying to stop autoplay. There is not even a cdrom option in the sidepanel of Rhythmbox. I have installed ubuntu-restricted-extras as advised...nada.

A chat room reply suggested abandon rhythmbox and install vlc which I did...same problem though at least i get an error message "unable to open MRL cdda://dev/sr0". As a complete newbie I do not know what to put int he command line to run rhythmbox or vlc to see the complete error log. I have spent two days trying to resolve this problem...the equivalent of several months worth of hanging/freezing on windows

Software :: How Do I Troubleshoot Lagging System

Jul 29, 2011

I have a laptop with SL6 installed on it.If I run 'top' i can see that the whole system just sticks/freezes for a moment here and there. The mouse becomes unresponsive during this time, *everything* freezes for a moment.I've put 'top' on with an interval of .1, and there isn't a particular program hitting the top of this list when it happens.

Ubuntu :: System Lagging When Connecting External Monitor?

Dec 31, 2010

Just installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS netbook edition and everything goes well except for one thing.

When I connect my lcd monitor to the vga port the system lags. If I listen to music and browse web pages at the same time, the sound skip and when the page stop loading, music is ok. Also, the mouse skip. If I do circle with it on the desktop without doing anything else, it will skip.

The strange thing if I remove the external monitor and reboot the system everything comes back to normal.

I had Intrepid Ibex for 2 years without any problems. I remember a post saying that powernowd should be disable, but can't find the process from the startup list anymore.

Ubuntu :: Mouse Freezing In 11.04?

May 29, 2011

After updating to 11.04, I have been experiencing several problems. One of the major ones is my USB mouse constantly freezes, usually shortly after boot. The computer itself is not frozen, so I can use the keyboard to close applications and restart. Restarting my computer will sometimes solve the problem, but not always. It is so frustrating.

I disabled ACPI, and although that stopped the mouse from freezing, I was uncomfortable with it being disabled, mainly because my computer never shut off properly, it would simply hang.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 Freezing But Can Still Move Mouse?

Feb 25, 2010

I have done some research and I am led to believe it has to do with "Bad Sectors" on my HDD. I have included a screenshot of the "Sectors that are failing" And the error messages I am recieving. If you believe it is anything else and there is a fix to it, feel free to inform me.

General :: Ubuntu 10.04 Keyboard And Mouse Freezing?

Sep 20, 2010

I had a partition setup with Windows XP and Ubuntu 8.04 dual booting. I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 by installing fresh from CD but leaving the previous /home folder as is. Things seemed to be working fine, but started finding that my mouse and keyboard were freezing. After a quick search on the internet, I found the following suggestions as shown here:- Ubuntu Forums

Here the suggestion was to:-
Edit /etc/default/grub, go to the line
that begins like:
Change it to:


This seemed to have resolved the issue but after a couple of days I again find my mouse and keyboard freezing. I also find that my parallel port printer had also stopped working. I have saved the output of dmesg and my syslog. The first can be viewed here but the syslog had too many characters,

Ubuntu Installation :: Mouse Freezing After Installing 10.10?

Nov 25, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) Random Freeze / Hang-up It's been a while since I last posted. Just to update, I originally ran Ubuntu 10.04 for a couple of days before giving up on it before switching to Xubuntu Lucid (10.04) - which, in 3 months of solid use never fell over once.

A week ago I did a fresh install of Xubuntu 10.10 on the exact same machine, and guess what?, not a single hiccup either in nearly a weeks' uptime. As explained before, I simply don't know why Gnome falls over on my machine and XFCE doesn't - I'm mystified. But at least my machine's stable enough to actually get some work done, and that's all that really matters to me.

PS: NO, I haven't tried Ubuntu 10.10 yet, who knows, maybe it would actually work on my rig???.. but honestly, I've fallen in love with XFCE - the simplicity & configurability is awesome, best DE out there by a country mile...

what is the difference between the various forms of ubuntu - Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Edubuntu and Xubuntu, and from people's experience, which is the most stable (well the one at least that won't keep freezing etc)? It's getting quite frustrating now with my mouse freezing continually and there just does not seem a simple solution to the problem!
I use a Dell desktop C521, with AMD processor, and windows XP SP3 installed on it. So I got the ubuntu 10.10 CD, slotted it in and just followed the instructions to get ubuntu installed side-by-side with windows (ie. dual boot option).

Debian :: Jesise Freezing (Except Mouse) Gnome 3.14

Aug 13, 2015

Recently with the release of Kali Linux on Aug 11th I have decided to do a clean reinstall and install Kali Linux 2.0 which runs on Jessie Debian using GNOME Shell 3.14.

When my system freezes I am still able to move the mouse and perhaps notably, the cursor still updates from an arrow to a hand icon in certain locations as though it is over a link - though this does not necessarily correspond to where links are actually displayed on the screen. I have seen no response to any keyboard interaction. For a while I have decided to ignore the freezes but they happen far too frequently to be ignored, within an hour my system would freeze up to 10 - 30 times for up to 15+ seconds at a time. The only application I am using when this seems to happen is iceweasel and I cant think of anything else that could be stressing the machine.

Ubuntu :: System Hanging On The Grub2 Boot Up?

Mar 1, 2010

I've read the various Grub2 posts and even the guide, but unfortunately for me I can't seem to come up with an answer to my problem. I installed Ubuntu 9.10 on a new hard drive on a friends laptop, but I have problems with the system hanging on the Grub2 bootup.I'll post the screen

if [ -n ${have_grubenv} ]; then save-env recordfail; fi
set quiet=1
insmod ext2
set root=(hd0,1)
search --no floppy --fs-uuid --set ac1b1d46-bac1-4140--953e-70a8a61be8b0
linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.31-14-generic root=UUI=ac1b1d46-bac1-4140-953e-70a8a61be8b0 ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.31-14-generic

If I hold down the left shift and then press E to edit and remove the search --no floppy line entirely then press ctrl-x the system boots just fine. I then opened up a terminal and did sudo update-grub to try that but it didn't fix it. Is this a problem in my bios looking for a floppy, I tried with the boot from floppy enabled and disabled (but always as the 3rd boot option) the floppy is not installed. Is there anyway to edit the file and save it so it will boot up? I was trying to research that and could not come up with it.

Ubuntu :: Gnome-do Hanging System And Login

Jun 16, 2010

I'm running a fresh install of Lucid without any issues thus far. I have my computer setup to log me in automatically, without requesting a password.

I installed Gnome-do and set it up to run at login (as I always have). After a reboot, my system is not responding to input from my mouse or keyboard. I can move my cursor, but it will not accept input.

I see gnome-do, which is partially covered by the "Unlock keyring" dialog" (which always comes up, I think to unlock my wifi).

Fedora :: System Hanging During Downloading?

Mar 14, 2010

My Fedora setup is working great so far, and I don't really have any complaints. I installed it on a portable hard drive, connected over USB. Thing is, I installed my system with the LiveCD, and I wanted to download the full DVD for a friend because of his needs for his system. When I try to download the full DVD (whether over Firefox or Transmission), the system hangs by suddenly showing a screen with the Fedora logo in the middle and a light blue background, the same as in boot up. Also, my caps lock blinks in a consistent fashion like a metronome. The same happens whether I try to download to the portable hard drive or to a FAT32 partition on my laptop's actual hard drive. Is there any way to fix this, or can I be calmed by the fact that it just happens because it's installed on a portable hard drive? This problem isn't happening on Ubuntu (which is installed on my laptop's hard drive), where I am downloading from right now.

OpenSUSE Install :: System Hanging Up / What To Do?

Mar 10, 2010

I am in serious trouble apparently.

System boots up to loading NVIDIA drivers, it shows mouse pointer then it hangs up!

This happened after brutal force rebooting, because system did not responded properly (especially Nautilus). Probable cause:
forget to unmount.cifs a windows shared folder in the network (mounted with mount.cifs). It happened to me already sometimes (to forget umount.cifs), but never ending with this permaenent hanging up)

-tried automatic system repair with suse boot DVD. It repaired something + changed the bootloader. Problem still there

-rebooted--> system hanging up after NVIDIA drivers. code...

Ubuntu :: Upgrade Hanging Up The System - How To Get Old Style Boot Up Screen

Feb 15, 2011

I just recently installed updates from Ubuntu and the system is hosed. I get the Ubuntu screen that flashes real quick then it goes to the Nvidia like cursor. I am pretty sure something is hanging up on startup. I cannot get to a console, cannot do anything but reboot with ctrl alt del. Then I get the briefest flash of the screen but not long enough to see where it was hanging up at. I ran the same updates on this machine, if I could get the old school informitive startup screen instead of the windows like tell you nothing start up screen I might at least know where to start looking. Right now I have zero clue as to what the updates broke. I cannot even get to log files as there's no console, no ssh, nothing. version is Ubunto 10.4 LTS.

Debian Installation :: System Hanging On Upgrade To Jessie

Apr 5, 2016

I have an asus eee 1015px, which was running dualboot windows and wheezy with no problems (except the browsers seeming to take up a lot of CPU). Today having backed up everything, I wanted to upgrade to jessie. URL...

Everything seemed to be progressing fine, no strange messages, it took 1 hour for

Code: Select allapt-get upgrade

but maybe that's normal. However, then when I did

Code: Select allapt-get dist-upgrade

It froze at 17.30 with a weird screen. The sort of thing you never want to see on an install, a sad face and blocks instead of text.
pic: URL...

Then it moved on and gave a readout, which seemed pretty ominous
pic: URl...

It then moved and gave a readout, hanging again:
pic3: URl...

Now it seems to be in loop, moving on every 15 minutes or so but always ending up with the same screenful of text shown in the foto below, which ends with the last line reading like this:

Code: Select all[17798.587776] ieee80211 phy0: brcms_ops_bss_info_changed: arp filtering: enabled true, count 1 (implement)
or later
Code: Select all[20209.229273] ieee80211 phy0: brcms_ops_bss_info_changed: arp filtering: enabled true, count 1 (implement)

This pic shows the full screen: URL....

This is baffling for me I'm not very experienced with debian.

Fedora :: Slow Working And Hanging The System Unreasonably?

Dec 9, 2009

I installed Fedora 12, 64 bit on my Dell Latitude D820 laptop with Core2 Duo processor(7200 speed) and 2 gigabyte Memory.

I have updated the yum. I have enabled the rpm repositories.

It is very weird that my system suddenly works very slowly and hangs. every time I login after a while the CPU usage goes up to the end with out any reason!

Before this I had installed Fedora 12, 32 bit and I had the exact same problem.

I have installed Fedora 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 on my laptop before and I had non of these problems with them.

The interesting point is that after hanging my system works constantly slow even when I restart my system! It is slow even in booting the BIOS and start up and choosing the kernel page!

The only remedy to get rid of the slow working for a while is to Shut down the system completely and turn it on again. Restarting do not make it work normally just shutting down makes it normal for a while.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 System Is Freezing

Apr 24, 2010

I have a clean install of Kubuntu 9.10 running on ext4 partitions (root and home). Kernel: 2.6.31-20-generic-pae.Freezing is becoming a way of life! I first thought it was my main browser (Seamonkey) but freezes have occurred even when it's not open. It usually occurs when computer is left unattended for a while.I'm not sure if it's the desktop crashing, no ides how to check logs especially as I have to reboot to gain access.

Mouse and keyboard work fine, I can use ALT+F4 to close windows and ALT+F2 to restart. But programs freeze, KMenu won't open, Taskbar is frozen, no HD activity.Where do I go from here?9.10 seems OK on my laptop but that was a upgrade from 9.04 and I don't usually leave it open unattended for any periods of time. I did a clean install of 9.10 after an upgrade was having the same problems.

Ubuntu :: KDE 4.7 Freezing Up My System

Aug 11, 2011

I installed KDE 4.7 (minimal desktop install) on my desktop computer, running Ubuntu 11.04, and every time I go to log in with the KDE Plasm Workspace, my computer all of a sudden freezes up after about a minute of working fine. My mouse slows down incredibly and eventually comes unresponsive to keyboard, power button, and mouse click input. The mouse can move, but it's movement isn't fluid, and it can only move a little bit. Can anyone help me? I have also had problems with KDE 4.7 on other computers as well, but this desktop I am using is almost brand new. :/

CentOS 5 :: Blank Screen After Fresh Install / Why System Hanging Before GRUB Menu?

Mar 28, 2011

I installed CentOS 5.5 last night using the DVD ISO (from a USB drive thanks to the Universal USB Installer). I selected the Server and Virtualization packages, and finished the install all the way through. At the end, the installer asked me to remove any installation media and reboot the system. After rebooting, the system hangs on a blank screen with a blinking cursor in the top left corner that does not accept text. This is before the GRUB screen appears. For partitioning, I created a 4GB swap partition on sdb and a 16GB ext3 partition on sda, mounted at /, with the remaining free space on sdb mounted at /storage.

Does anyone know why this system is hanging before the GRUB menu?
