Ubuntu :: 11.04 Constantly Crashing?

Apr 30, 2011

I've managed to install the 32bit version on my laptop with little issue, and I'm really liking the Unity interface. There's a few issues around customisation and minor usability quirks, but from my experience with things like KDE4, I'm guessing it's only time. Anyway, I've been having major problems getting the 64bit version running with my Desktop. I have 8Gb of RAM in that, so it's not really an option to use the 32bit version. The Installer crashes constantly, but I was able to upgrade from 10.10 using update manager, but unfortunately Natty is no more stable than it's installer.

While logging in, or shortly after, the machine will crash to a text console displaying a Kernel Panic message. There's also messages indicating a problem with the CPU MCE. I've tried setting various kernel parameters at boot, such as nomce and nomodeset, these have extended the time the machine is up before crashing out, and removed the Kernel panic message, but not the crashes. I'm guessing the MCE messages were unrelated or a symptom in this case.I've done a huge amount of searching, and found no suggestions that I haven't already tried. Running Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit the system is rock solid.

Installation :: Ubuntu 10.10 Fglrx Constantly Crashing / Revert It To 10.04?

Dec 1, 2010

i have a multi-monitor setup running two ati radeon 4870 cards.

after upgrading to 10.10 from 10.04 fglrx is constantly crashing. it works with some applications such as the browsers chrome, firefox and other applications such as nautilus but if i try to view videos or even open another application i use often keepassx it will crash to a terminal screen.

ubuntu 10.10 is very unusable in this current state, is there a way i can easily revert to 10.04? i have tried the ubuntu provided driver after fully purging fglrx as well as the one provided by ati and to no luck.

Ubuntu :: Keep The CPU Fan Spinning At 100% Constantly ?

Jul 3, 2011

I think I have found the problem to my Ubuntu laptop locking up, and it is most likely overheating. Is there any way to keep the CPU fan spinning at 100% constantly? I tried setting it up in the BIOS but it is an old laptop and I can't control it from there.

New Compaq 610. All good so far but the fan seems to be on continually. Checked load cycle count and seems to be okay so far.

Any ideas? It wasn't doing this before and don't remember doing anything to make it happen but I have been tweaking a bit while setting up the machine.

Ubuntu :: Jdb Constantly Writing To Disk

Aug 7, 2011

I've just completed a fresh install on natty, and I'm seeing constant disk writes of around 1Mb every couple of seconds.

I looked at iotop to find the culprit, and it seems to be the journalling manager for the ext4 filesystems:

215 be/3 root 0.00 B/s 19.23 K/s 0.00 % 5.89 % [jbd2/sda1-8]

Is there something I can do to adjust this behaviour somehow? I'm a bit concerned about wearing the disk out before its time...

Ubuntu :: System Constantly Overheat / Why Is So - Fix It?

Apr 6, 2010

I have installed Ubuntu from scratch several times since this problem started in Ubuntu 9*. It happens over and over again, and nothing seems to help.
My grasphic card is Nvidia 8500 GT. No matter what I try, to use no hardware drivers or use the recommended driver for Ubuntu my system shuts down without warning. I have used Ubuntu since 2004 and this is the worst bug I have ever experienced!
Is there a way to get rid of this thermal awareness program? Everything functioned fine until this stupid heat problem occurred. I want to turn it off but not to leave Ubuntu.
Lasdt night I was busy installing WinXP when my computer suddenly turned off, and Ubuntu could not be started again. Only show a screen with black and white parts and no desktop. Thats why I had to install Ubuntu again, and it turned off today while I use Firefox. Its the worst bug I have ever experienced.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wg111v3 Constantly Droping Out (9.04,9.10,10.04)?

Apr 15, 2010

I am running 10.04 beta right now, on a hp a6740in , I have wireless usb adapter WG111v3 with me for connecting to my home network , It works perfect in windows but i am trying to get working it with Ubuntu since the past year. In 10.04 beta , It MAY connects for sometime and then drops out,trying to connect again and again, asking me to review the password each time.

I have also filed a bug about the same some 6-7 months month ago, but the ubuntu community seems busy with many other things. So i decided finally posting on the forum again , hoping to get a working solution this time(previous was when jaunty launched) This is the only thing that keeps me away from using ubuntu for my general day work, I have already searched through ubuntu forums but always end up with ndiswrapper thing which doesnt works.

Ubuntu :: Disk Drive Running Constantly?

Apr 15, 2010

Ubuntu 9.10
Gateway SX2802 (Core 2 Quad)
750GB drive

Everything was fine for the first 6 months. Now in the past couple weeks, my disk drive is running nearly constantly. I can hear it rattling away in the background no matter what I am doing. Typically, I just have Firefox open, and that disk drive is sounding like it's writing the whole thing over and over.

I've opened the system monitor and looked for something obvious, but everything says, "sleeping". The computer seems to operate fine - no crashes, no odd behavior. What's this thing doing?

Ubuntu :: Disks Constantly Remounting As Read Only

Jun 11, 2010

My disks are constantly being remounted as read only. Even after I manually mount them and explicitly specify the rw option, after a while I find they have become read only. Needless to say, working like that is impossible. Fortunately the root partition is not affected, but every other partition is.

Ubuntu :: Computer Constantly Crashes After Installation?

Jun 14, 2010

We've had a very big problem with our computer chrashing for a while, and I'm not sure if it's Linux Ubuntu that's the problem or not be we'd like some feedback from the experts of this forum. I hope I'm posting this in the right place. So, a while back we had Windows XP on our machine, and it had been running well (as well as XP is capable anyway, ), but for some reason it wouldn't boot XP properly and would only allow us to open it in Safe Mode.

We opened up the computer to take the memory chips out and back in, just in case that would help, and the inside was terribly dusty. Also, we have a loose heatsink, and the chip underneath is filled with dust. Not sure what the chip is I'll try to get some picture of it pretty soon. Anyway, the inside of the machine obviously wasn't too good.

So, we installed Linux Ubuntu LTS 10.04 on it from a CD to try to fix the booting problem, and this worked -- but now, our computer crashes constantly after turning on. It crashes whatever we're doing -- we can do something light, like Google Chrome, or something heavy, like video editing, and have it crash on us. So it doesn't seem to be a problem with the programs or anything -- I'm guessing it's either an issue with the computer itself or an error with the operating system. Sometimes we're lucky and can be on the computer for half-hour to and hour and a half, but it's still really bothersome, and will get in the way of any projects that require saving or recording. I'd guess it crashes around 10-20 times a day.

I included a video of it crashing and what it does just in case that could be of any help. Link: [URL]... The screen goes blank for a moment -- shows oddly colored, fragmented bars in the center of the screen (sometimes red, sometimes silver), shows this text:

* Speech-dispatcher configured for user sessions
* Starting the Winbind daemo
winbind [ OK
* Starting Common Unix Printing System: cupsd [ OK
* PulseAudio configured for per-user sessions

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Constantly Drops Out?

Sep 15, 2010

I have been running Ubuntu for 2 years and have not had a problem like this. Randomly one day my wireless dropped out. I can see other networks on my laptop, but they are all locked so i cant test and see if i can connect to them so i went to my friends house and was connect fine for over an hour.

Also my PS3 and my windows box connect to my router and internet just fine.

I then assumed that this was a hardware issue then with my wireless card on my laptop. So i called up lenovo and they sent me a new wireless card. I installed it and still had the same problem.

Lenovo t400
Intel 5300 Wireless
Ubuntu 10.4

I realixe i am not giving to much information, let me know what you need and i will provide it.

I tried buying a new router now and it worked great!!!..... for an hour. Now it is doing the same thing.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Constantly Disconnects?

Oct 4, 2010

I'm using an Acer Aspire One d250 running Netubuntu 10.04. The wireless connection to my router fails at random intervals and spends most of it's time trying to reconnect. It will occasionally ask me to input the password to the network, which is already entered in the dialog box, and clicking "connect" doesn't seem to make any difference. Also, when it is disconnected from the network, none of the other computers in the house, wired or wireless, are having any problems. If there is any more information I could provide,

Ubuntu :: Windows Disappearing/reappearing, Constantly.

Apr 30, 2011

First post, so please bear with me...

All of my windows disappear for about a second, leaving only the desktop wallpaper showing, then reappear. I've noticed it mostly when navigating pages or clicking on bookmark folders (on the 'new tab' page) in Chromium. I tried switching the session from "Ubuntu" to "Ubuntu Classic," but that didn't really work either; the problem still persists.

Other times I've had it happen is clicking on Unity's panel (the volume, time/date, etc.). I've no way to access an application's menu now; clicking 'tools' in Banshee also starts the problem.

Any suggestions on how to solve this?

At this rate, the motor will burn out prematurely.I don't think this is normal. How can I troubleshoot this and keep it from running?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi Timeouts Constantly Since 9.10 / Stop It To Do So?

Feb 19, 2010

I'm using the linksys wmp300n with ndiswrapper to connect to a belkin wireless router with a static ip ( The rest of the PCs in the house have .2, .4, and .5 only running windows XP and 7. This one won't stay connected during large file transfers within the network or over the internet in Ubuntu. I made a script to restart ndiswrapper but I have to do it every 2 or 3 min during a file transfer. I can't play online games at all. No ssh sessions for more than a few min... so on and so forth. None of these issues happen in Windows 7 but when it was first installed it had to do something with dhcp before it would stay connected. Windows wouldn't tell me what was going on though. code...

Ubuntu Networking :: Download Speeds Drop Constantly

Mar 12, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 9.10 on a Dell inspiron 1520 with intel 3945abg wireless card. I am fairly new to linux and just installed it earlier in the day. Everything so far has been easy to setup and get running as well as the networking or so i though...

I can connect to my network and browse we pages just fine. However, when I download a file the speed starts high, drops down to around 50kbps and then works its way back up to around 1.3 mbps before dropping right back down. I tested a file on megaupload and it seems to bounce between 50kbps and 1.5mbps nonstop.

The driver i believe is the iwl3945 if that is the default driver. I have tried disabling ipv6 and that didnt seem to change anything. I've looked around on google and the forums and havent been able to find anything on how to fix this.
