I just purchased a new Asus G752VT and installed Ubuntu 16.04.4 on it. I have observed several issues but one issue which is immediately caught my attention is that the kworker process is taking up 100% cpu, and that too on only one core.

Please help. If any commands need to be executed to gather reports i will do so.

  • If you can copy and paste the screen showing 100% CPU that is often helpful to others. – WinEunuuchs2Unix Apr 15 '18 at 23:32
  • You could try getting backtraces as in askubuntu.com/a/421916/799387 and see if anything correlates between them. – dsstorefile1 Apr 15 '18 at 23:35
  • How do I attach an image or a file? I can do both. – UbuntuUser007 Apr 16 '18 at 0:06
