Re: Don't know where to report this: Both computers locking up with 20.0

Ok, laptop made it through over a day and a half, so just did the tower. During reboot it threw up a ton of errors to do with USB but booted. How can I post the errors here so we can further make grub right for me? About 20 lines appears and went through usb errors because it started up.

Re: Don't know where to report this: Both computers locking up with 20.0

Did it on the laptop yesterday. So far so good. If it doesn't freeze I'm going to try it on my tower too, which just frozen a while ago while using it.

It happens while I'm using it too. The cursor will even still move but left button or right button won't do anything. Eventually the screen freezes and ctrl alt bkspc will take forever to go to start screen, sometimes I quit waiting.

Re: Don't know where to report this: Both computers locking up with 20.0

sorry I didn't reply sooner, the hurricane killed my power here for a week. The non GUI screen is the start up text screen during OS startup. USB devices connected never caused problems before and the two computers don't use the same devices, the laptop only uses a wireless mouse and the tower only ...

Re: Don't know where to report this: Both computers locking up with 20.0

also spotify installed.

Never had problems with tower before, but sometimes laptop had trouble booting so I cleaned my RAM slots and that seemed to help. What is happening now is very different, I do suspect the OS.

Don't know where to report this: Both computers locking up with 20.0

I did fresh installs on both my tower and my laptop with the new Mint and they are up to date, but both freeze with mouse still working and Ctrl-Alt-Backspace doesn't work. Nothing on the OS works except the cursor moves. It doesn't respond to keyboard input. Both computers. There would appear to be...

Re: Can't use Timeshift, using NTFS backup drive, what do I use?

You'll have to acquire another drive. We aren't magicians :wink: I'm sorry if I tried your patience. 14 months ago I was still pretty focused on developing skills with Linux, but I don't have as much spare energy or time because I've taken up being a musician again after decades. I just read in the...
