Netrunner Home

The system does not turn off. (SOLVED)


When I try to turn off or restart the computer, the caps lock and scroll lock LEDs on the keyboard flash. The computer does not respond to anything. Only the reset button helps. Can you fix it somehow?


Oh the flashing is usually a indicator to a kernel panic.
So basically your kernel crashed.

Do you have any older kernels still installed that you can try. Or even try installing a newer one if available. Rolling should provide you with the Manjaro Settings Manager which allows you to install newer or even older kernels.


Could you please post your systems specs:

inxi -F

This will go along way in diagnosing your issue.

What packages, if any, have you installed, and/or removed, since your system had been installed?
Have you tried installing anything from the AUR that are driver, and/or base system related?

I did not install any packages from the AUR repository.


It looks as if you have a AMD (ATI) add in graphics card inserted into an nforce chipset.
You might not want to be using the proprietary catalyst drivers.
These drivers have not been updated in 2 years, and require a downgraded version of the Xorg stack.
It’s recommend to use the opensource drivers instead. (Out of date)


Thank you for your help. I changed the drivers on opensource and the problem disappeared.


I’m glad to hear your issue was resolved.
