Re: System wont reboot or shutdown after kernel update

I had the same problem reported here, after installing a few updates. However, I saw today a new kernel update, verrsion 5.3.0-59. After installing it and rebooting my PC twice, the computer shut down just fine. Try installing this kernel update and see if it solves your problems, guys. My issue is...

Re: Anyone else having issues Kernel 5.3.0-53.109?

A new kernel is available in the Update Manager 5.3.0-59 Hopefully will fix the issue for this. The update works. Reboot and shutdown are working properly now. vinnie@vinnie-System-Product-Name:~$ inxi -Fxz System: Host: vinnie-System-Product-Name Kernel: 5.3.0-59-generic x86_64 bits: 64 compiler: ...

Re: Hello forum and question.

Also TAB completion comes in handy. While typing in the name of the directory you can hit TAB after typing one character and if there isn't any other directory that starts with that character TAB will complete the rest of the characters for you. If there are 2 or more directories that start with the...

Re: Anyone else having issues Kernel 5.3.0-53.109?

My bad guys, my original issue was not being able to both restart and shutdown. After I installed .110, I had a successful restart, which I never had before on the previous update. However, for reasons I can't figure out, I am now unable to not only shutdown but restart again as well, so I am back ...

I'm having the same issue. Mine wont reboot or shutdown at all. I've waited 20 minutes on each instance of reboot and shutdown. I finally have to hold down my power button until its forces an improper shut down and then I have to power back up. System: Host: vinnie-System-Product-Name Kernel: 5.3.0-...

Re: System wont reboot or shutdown after kernel update

Go into Update Manager > View > Linux kernels and remove the 5.3.0-53 kernel. Then don't apply the upgrade when it reappears. Thank you. That worked. Also recently I took an old hard drive out of an old system so I could salvage old data to this system. It was a hard drive from a Mint 17.1 It is ca...

Hello, vinnievegas.

The workaround / solution for the moment is going back to the previous kernel 5.3.0-51.

Best regards,
Karl
How can I make it boot with that kernel by default without having to select it every time?

Re: Monitor not shutting off

I just installed Linux Mint 19.3 less than a week ago. I was running 17.2 before this. I didn't have this problem with 17.2. So this seems to me that it has to be a 19.3 problem.

Monitor not shutting off

I have an Acer monitor. When the screen saver comes on and after a while it will go off but my monitor never shuts off. It only displays the default monitor screen saver that tells you a cable not connected. This stays like this all the time until I move my mouse. Is there a solution to this? IMG_20...
