When I just use my laptop normally everything works just fine.
But as soon as I watch a youtube video or anything else that uses flash player in firefox my laptop starts to sound very loud. I have checked my CPU performance when this happens and my CPU is not at more then 10-20% (intel i5 quad). As soon as I pause or close youtube/flash my laptop isnt so loud anymore.
I figured this might have to do with the graphic card and I wanted to know if there is any tests I can run to see how my graphic card is behaving when I'm using flash player. When I run System testing I get this:
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc. OpenGL renderer string: AMD Radeon HD 6400M Series OpenGL version string: 4.2.12337 Compatibility Profile Context 13.101 Not software rendered: yes Not blacklisted: yes GLX fbconfig: yes GLX texture from pixmap: yes GL npot or rect textures: yes Compiz supported: yes
Because I use flash player a lot I'm quite concerned about how my laptop is behaving. I run ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
How to fix this issue ?
