System Crashes- total freeze

Was running blender, web browsers and discord/teams during a class. PC froze, nothing was moving BUT I was able to hear the class for a bit, then cut out and then stuttered to death too. Other than that, everything else was just like a picture. Fixed by the power button.
Happened again just when running a browser and vim and again: twice today.
Not ram filling up- I've not been over 60% even with full work flow.
Each time my PC HAD been running longer than usual- maybe 9 hours max.

also, no idea what or how to get the system logs. its been about an hour since the last crash

using dragonized gaming edition.

Maybe update your DE and Nvidia driver.
Next try other kernel, I use Kernel: 5.10.11-zen2-1-zen x86_64

ill look into using another kernel. sounds fun :stuck_out_tongue:

Should it happen again and i restart, where do i look for the logs prior shutdown? and

Did you check your CPU usage or just your ram usage at the time?

There was a bug with the auto-cpufreq.service which is in the process of being fixed. You can temporarily mask the service to check if that was part of your issue.

ill look into that.
