CPU usage spikes

Ok, I'm on a 2 GHz Athlon 64 3200+ and 1 Gig of RAM, and ever since I installed FC5 x86, when I run 3 things (Firefox Gaim and Xine) the cpu usage will spike at 100% and whatever music I'm playing will stop fer a sec when I flip through webpages, I was wondering is this could be the problem, it shows up everytime I start FC5


The 1689 is my motherboard chipset number

Did you update FC5. Those types of problems have benn addressed with updates for bug fixes.
If you are not fully updated on FC5 you are missing a great OS.

Then check you sound configuration options as being correct for your sound.
Search bugzilla for open bugs on this topic.

The problem is not just a Linux issue.
I could be hardware or cpu usage.
For example, the sound card may be using the same irq as the nic and when you use the web a lot the sound is grabbled.
or it may be that you are using 100% cpu for just long enough that the system needs to do somethime, so it stops processes.

It may be the sound device, or drv or settings not complete.

This is not just Linux or Windows or anysoftware but how computers work and how they are used.

List you complete hardware specs and someone may have or know about those pieces.

But 2 Ghz and 1 GB on is plenty of power to run music and browse a few tabs.


SJ

also check for run away processes using cpu. top or system monitor. It happens.

Let's see...

Motherboard: http://www.chaintechusa.com/tw/eng/p...o=13&PISNo=319
RAM: 1 Gigabyte (forgot manufacturer)
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Socket 939 (Venice)
GPU: eVGA GeForce 6800 AGP 8x
DVD-RW Pioneer 110D

That's all I can think of at the moment.

Sorry to double-post, but my computer wasn't having this problem with the x86_64 edition of FC5.
