Even on usual daily basis, CPULoad will be too High even for verysmalltasks.
And everytime, booting takes moretime than usual, and after logging in it takes much moretime to bringup all panels and all other stuff.
Fanruns in highspeed with noise all the time, even may be GPU.
Ram may or may not be high everytime usually [ I can't add this in list for now, but if i get any suggestion, u r welcome :)]
SystemFreezesmoreoftenlymanytimes literally almosteverytime (which i can't bear everytime, and i never face this on other version/variants/other distro...... This freezing of system was not to this extent when i was using kde ultimate, it would sometimes give latte-dock crash thats it. But now this will hit its high level everytime whenever it is when i even open or do any literally any very small process too. Sometimes either that particular process wil end automatically (and I do loose my data/progress in that) or sometimes entire system will hang for a very long time, which sometimes makes me impatient
Once the entire system went wrong to an extent that, each n everywhere i should see blureffect, it was converted to other colours (for example latte-dock panel became orange, terminal became black, similarly others..) and it neverreturnedback to its original state wtever i tried, hence i had to reinstallsystem bcoz i was busy on a work and didnt had time to debug nor raise it here. And according to me, what i got as the reason was system hitting 100% and getting over loaded even for small task (example: I played a video which actually went through full screen and as i restored the size, the panel at the top became orange, but for my luck, it returned back with some seconds) Thank you for any solutions i receive below

This is quite normal as things like ZRAM and preload are used.
Often suggested as first step is changing kernel by installing linux-lts for example to cross out the kernel being culprit. In fact I recently found out that current kernel versions cause incredible annoying graphic bugs for me.
Also we could need proper system information given by inxi as the current specs you posted could be literally anything.
Changing kernels is one of the easiest troubleshooting steps you can perform and it resolves far more issues than you'd ever expect. Whenever you start to experience unusual issues with your system, the first thing you should do is test at least three alternate kernels. For those experiencing severe system freezes/crashes testing out alternate kernels should always be your fist step.
You can install an alternate kernel from the terminal using any of the following commands:
I would suggest starting at the top of the list and working your way down if your issues haven't improved.
You can switch to a newly installed kernel after a reboot via the grub "Advanced" boot menu. Simply choose the kernel you wish to boot into from the choices listed. You only need to select the fallback kernel choice if your other other installed kernels are severely problematic. After installing a new kernel it is best not to uninstall your old kernel. It is always best to have at least two kernels installed in case one kernel experiences a problem booting. The LTS kernel is the recommended choice to keep installed as a backup kernel.
It would be best to perform an extensive search of the forum for other solutions if a kernel change does not fix your problem.
For those that have tested multiple different kernels and they are still experiencing freezes there is one more thing you could try. Sometimes a kernel change alone will not resolve some stubborn freezing problems. In these cases it is a good idea to also test out different I/O schedulers. Some kernel versions come preconfigured with custom I/O schedulers, or you can manully change this your self.
well, i too don't wanted to raise ram as a issue for now:)
sure, I'll try this.
And wt if i have many kernels, as u said to keep 2, and wt if i get issue solved after trying many and keep all!?
I've seen, but i couldn't make out what was the actual thing which caused high usage, bcoz each n everytime i do any new task, it hits the high and its not just bcoz of any single thing which i can find it out.
i got this issue for videos that are in my disk. But this happened not just for video, but freezed also other tasks.
Well, I just did it, and after boot and logging in, it still took more than 30seconds to show up everything else than desktop background, and still when i opened browser, it went upto 80%load over cpu and when i opened another, it almost hit 100% again n came back after some seconds
well, its not just on battery but also freezes while on AC power
literally i'm not getting any thoughts on what to do exactly, by seeing everything all these n researches made me confused a lot:(
I'd be really thankful if anybody can explain me n give me a clear cut straightforward solutions:)
There are no such thing as a "magic solution" to an ill-defined or transient issue.
Are you running Garuda?
Keep in mind that this is an international forum and people will use translation software. "1337speek" or "textspeak" creates artificial barriers to people understanding you. This is forum software, not chat or text messaging, so you are free to use full words to make yourself easily understood.
Not only that, but full words and complete sentences illustrate that you are treating the problem(s) in a rational manner. In my humble opinion, others may be more stimulated to help you if you do so.
What I like about our forums are that we can have fun where appropriate, or help trouble-shoot singular or common issues in a calm, non-mechanical manner.
Most often problems and resolutions are already known, so it is just a matter of pointing to them. Sometimes it is a process of, "Try A, try B, try C" etcetera until something finally works.
So please, everyone new to Garuda or Linux: We are a self-supporting group. We like helping others to experience Linux because that is how Linux-loving people operate. We like self-starters best, but we can accommodate anyone--to a point.
And sometimes I wish I could better practice what I preach.
and what i now experienced is, whenever i start any game, though it didnt touch 100% cpu load but still all the blur effect were mismatched
and sometimes yet cpu touches 100% when i open any new tasks and then too this blur effect will mismatch by taking other colours
Had the same problem, did the fix provided by @ServoGamer and it worked really well. I use to open one Chromium Tab and the complete system would enter in disk-sleep state. Now, on mid loads, like opening 5+ tabs at the same time does have a ~1 second freeze but it is nothing that feels ugly as before.
