I have a relatively new Thinkstation E30 tower as my desktop machine. Unfortunately it completely freezes from once a day to once in two weeks..
I returned it to the store I bought it from and they checked it without finding anything wrong.
When the freeze happens there is no harddisk activity any more and the magic sysrq keys are not responsive.
I am mostly running Ubuntu 12.04 and I could find no clues in the logs.
BIOS is latest version: 9HKT53AUS (07/18/2012) as far as I can tell..the lenovo support site is not loading at the moment so I cannot check for an update.
Anybody out there who might know what this is?
The graphics are integrated: Intel HD Graphics 3000.ducky2802 wrote:I would check for driver conflicts and possibly pulling your graphics card (if you have one) and seeing if you have a problem. Could be GPU related.
There is a new HD where the OS is running from, but the original one is still present and used too.ducky2802 wrote:I would suggest installing a new HD and loading up a new OS and seeing if the problem is replicated. Might try re-arranging and re-seating your memory too.
Did memory reseating too, even took some out for a while but the crashes were not gone.
What are caps?ducky2802 wrote:Could be a bad PSU. Apart from that, I highly doubt its the caps, but if any appear bulged, slanted with dried fluid, its possible.
EDIT: ok you mean capacitors (http://www.badcaps.net/pages.php?vid=4). Will check.
