Troubleshooting graphics issues (AMD)


I have a new Thinkpad Z13, which has a Ryzen CPU and Rembrandt graphics, and occasionally the screen will freeze, and then, after a few seconds, go black, necessitating a reboot. There aren’t any errors in journalctl/GNOME logs.

Where can I find the relevant logs?

It might be that system is unable to save any logs because of the crash.
Check BIOS updates and paste here sudo inxi -SMGaz output.

Thanks for the response. I hadn’t considered an issue with saving the logs, though oddly the system itself seems to keep working somewhat - for example, audio keeps playing, I can play/pause it using keyboard shortcuts.

I thought that the computer was unresponsive. Can you switch to other TTY with e.g. Ctrl+Alt+F3, login and check dmesg output?
