Crash when watching youtube

Post by darksidemember » Sat Oct 20, 2018 5:59 am

My machine crashes everytime I watch youtube. I tried firefox and chromium. They both had a same issue so I assume its not browser related. I am running 18.3 cinnamon. Can anyone help me?

Please post the output of this terminal command:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
Enclose the results between [ⅽode] and [/ⅽode] code markers by selecting </> from the mini toolbar above the textbox where you type your reply. Note that it's a capital F in that command, followed by lower case xz.

Please run the following command on the terminal and share its output here (you can select and copy text on the terminal through its Edit menu). This way others get a bit of info about your system and can with that hopefully help figure out the cause.
inxi -Frxz

I switched from my nvidia gpu to my intel gpu which seem to fixed the issue. I assume the problem was in my nvidia card. Thanks to everyone who offered help.
