Gpu temp, when only browsing this forum: 87 Celsius (189F). Is this ok?

I saw another person's question about a reported difference in bios and Inxi-Fxz values of the temperature of the cpu. One was 35 Celsius (95F) the other was 55 Celsius (131 F). Although it is odd, that BIOS and Inxi -Fxz report different values. Both those values are normal though according to what...

Re: Unpredictable Suspend/Wake Behavior Mint 19 Xfce

Great. Thx for giving that summary of your specs. You are using a dual boot with windows with uefi. Could be that secure boot or fast boot is causing some suspend problems. That could be investigated further. Let's wait and see what your new install of LM18.3 Xfce does. Maybe suspend issues are reso...

Re: Unpredictable Suspend/Wake Behavior Mint 19 Xfce

AndreMr, I have LinuxMInt 19 Cinnamon myself, so I cant guide you through the different menus of your system to help you out which settings you could possibly change. Most of your icon problems seem rather innocent and I guess they are not bugs by the sound of it. In the mean time, tell me if you ha...

Re: do_IRQ: 0.55 No irq handler for vector

MichaelD, thanks for giving some more information. The biggest and most important question that must be solved now is WHY you dont have a functioning ethernet connection, when you are using the Live DVD. Without internet in LinuxMint19 you cant get crucial updates. So solving that problem is importa...

Re: do_IRQ: 0.55 No irq handler for vector

Goodmorning MichaelD, I had another look at your problem. First some questions; 1 Did your ethernet connection work during the first install from the live DVD? If not, then because of that failure you havent been able to download and install all sorts of LinuxMInt19 software during installation. 2 H...

Re: Being a newbie, should I wait to react to a post when I dont have a full solution ready?

Okay, that's comforting to know. And it makes sense what you guys all say. Thanks for thinking along... I asked this question because I recently could only help another newbie with 1 problem, while he had 3. The other 2 problems were much more serious though. I did however suggest to him that he cou...

Being a newbie, should I wait to react to a post when I dont have a full solution ready?

I like helping other newbies out, since I am still one myself. And I feel a bit sad when a newbie gets no response or very little response on this forum. It doesnt happen often, but sometimes it does. Ofcourse I will only react to a post if I have something helpful to say. But sometimes I am in doub...

Re: do_IRQ: 0.55 No irq handler for vector

Sorry MichaelD that I only focussed on the one problem with the IRQ message. You did not manage to do a full install of LinuxMint 19? Is that correct? Or did you do the full installation procedure and after a reboot your computer froze at the mint logo? I am asking because I dont know what you had i...

MichaelD, I have the same error message. And many have complained about them lately. And I have had them since LM19 was released on ALl the different distros. None of those messages in LM18. Those IRQ errors seem to indicate a shortcoming of the hardware in BIOS and those error messages started appe...

Re: Does TimeShift load a restore point by accident?

Timeshift can best be used to ONLY backup the SYSTEM settings. NOT the important personal files. It is advised to backup important files to an usb or external harddisc. In this way whenever your system goes bananas your files are safely backupped externally and with a timeshift restore point you can...

Re: When laptop goes into hibernate mode after hibernate mode it comes initframs

Alisami83, if it is no too much of a hassle I would try changing to LinuxMint 18.2 or 18.3. That could do the trick. The other tip was fiddling with some terminal commands with regard to the network drivers. Read the last section of the posted link. That gives you the exact terminal commands. Those ...

Re: When laptop goes into hibernate mode after hibernate mode it comes initframs

Welcome alisami83 to the LinuxMint forum, LinuxMint19 hasnt got hibernation, only suspend. Hardware conflicts with suspend (or hibernation in other linux versions) are well known. There are 2 "easy" fixes: 1 Changing back to another LinuxMint version 18.2 or 18.3. These versions have another kernel ...
