Since I updated from Fedora 29 to 30, I keep having random crashes at a rate of about one every 2-6 hours. I might be working on something, then the cursor freezes, but typically audio and video continue for a few more seconds if there is something playing. Then the entire computer shuts down and hangs on a black screen. I then need to power down the computer manually (holding the power button) before being able to boot again.
The system logs do not have anything useful in them, just typical log messages, no errors from the time of the crash.
I tried the following:
- Lowered my memory speed, as I was overclocking RAM/CPU. Now I’m back to stock speeds (even the OC was stable on Windows)
- Ran a memtest to verify my RAM is good. It ran over 24 hours, no errors.
- Re-installed Fedora 30 from scratch.
- Use nouveau instead of Nvidia’s proprietary driver.
I am using the KDE Plasma desktop version of Fedora.
Can anyone help me diagnose why this is happening?
My hardware is:
Mobo: ASUS PRIME X370-PRO
CPU: Ryzen R7 1700X @ stock speeds
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti @ stock speeds
RAM: 16GB DDR4 2400MHz
Storage: Samsung 970 EVO NVMe SSD
Powersupply is 600W
Again, the system is totally stable when running Windows for many hours, but crashes/hangs at least once a day on Fedora, which it did not do on Fedora 29!. I’d like to find out why so I could hopefully (help) solve the issue.
Does anyone have any ideas where to start?
