Looks like you have a hybrid graphic set up in your laptop?
Did you install bumblebee?
On this kind of setup the 2D is handled by the Intel chip and 3D by nvidia chip.
So this would mean that the Nvidia drivers wouldn’t be the issue, the Intel ones would.
Leszek, you asked sunito to “check for Nouveau GPU Lockup error messages” so he posted the section referring to the Nouveau diver. But his post right above my last one lists both the i915 and the nouveau drivers.
I’ve been experiencing a similar lock up once in a while, which has really slowed me down working on the ISO. I have only an Intel chip in this system, and it seems to happen more often when doing a lot of transferring and editing files. I’m not so sure this has to do with the graphic drivers.
Too bad. Normally there is some way to turn of the Intel card on those boards. I am not sure if you find it under graphics card though. Bios and Efi normally use some other places to place this config.
If you have a manual for this motherboard maybe something you can find there otherwise try to search again in the various submenus if you can find something.
These setups are essentially the same thing as having two graphics cards in one system and selecting which one to use for which task, In this situation you would have to physically removing one of the cards from the machine to disable it.
On hybrid systems like yours, there is usually a setting in the bios for telling the system which one or both to turn use.
This setting is different on many systems, may I ask what make and model laptop you have?
And I think I have this issue. I have re-installed a few times and never had this problem. But this time these issues arise.
1…Edit the start up command for Thunderbird then hit save. And the update system configuration went into a loop
2…After that when I would hit either the logout or shut down icon nothing would happen
3…When I hit the Power option in the settings it would just get the load icon and do nothing
