What Happen for Fedora, after Kernel 5.10.14 my Lenovo E590 is unstable

I started using Fedora 33 after it coming and it works good on my Lenovo Thinkpad E590, but after kernel 5.10.14, my Fedora is unstable and by kernel 5.10.15 and 5.10.16, it Freez and stop working and I have to reset it by power,
I think 5.10.15 and 5.10.16 need more RAM,
My Lenovo ThinkPad has 4GB of RAM

How often do you see this freeze? It might be memory, although I don’t think those kernels are particularly memory-hungry.

What do you see if you run /sbin/zramctl?

It often happens, in kernel 5.10.15 and 5.10.16

[mostafa@localhost ~]$ sudo /sbin/zramctl
NAME       ALGORITHM DISKSIZE   DATA  COMPR  TOTAL STREAMS MOUNTPOINT
/dev/zram0 lzo-rle       1.8G 634.9M 235.3M 249.4M       4 [SWAP]

I see above when I use Kernel 5.10.14 after 12 Hour uptime
I reboot Fedora and boot by kernel 5.10.16 and after boot I see this

[mostafa@localhost ~]$ /sbin/zramctl 
NAME       ALGORITHM DISKSIZE DATA COMPR TOTAL STREAMS MOUNTPOINT
/dev/zram0 lzo-rle       1.8G   4K   74B   12K       4 [SWAP]

I do not have uptime over 15 min in kernel 5.10.16 and Fedora stop working and Freez

Hi! You feel free download any version of kernel from koji and test stability of your system and have two or more kernels: newest and older. Than if you have good result you can test next updates clearly or work from stable version.

Uptime of less than 15 minutes and freezing is probably not a memory problem. What GPU do you have in this system?

After the machine crashes, when it comes back up, run

journalctl --no-pager -tkernel -pwarning -b-1

to see any errors that were logged at the last boot, if any.

And, also, see kernel 5.10.17, currently in updates-testing… maybe that will resolve the problem? (sudo dnf upgrade --enablerepo=updates-testing --advisory=FEDORA-2021-c52f4ff33a)

Thanks
I have intel GPU

I will run

after my Fedora Freez again.
Fedora by Kernel 5.10.16 FreeZ again
and I see

Hmmm. Can you try without virtualbox loaded to verify that this isn’t the problem?

Thanks I will check
but when I boot by 10.5.14, I do not have this problem
