The data is about more than hundred GB so I am going to have to look into buying a new drive and somehow transfer it over all through the live usb. And due to the weird way in which I've accessed the files viewtopic.php?t=315207 I'm not sure if I got everything.SMG wrote: ↑Tue Feb 23, 2021 11:57 amDoes this mean you now have your personal data backed up?
These errors are related to Nvidia. According to this Nvidia Developer Zone: Xid Messages, "id messages indicate that a general GPU error occurred, most often due to the driver programming the GPU incorrectly or to corruption of the commands sent to the GPU. The messages can be indicative of a hardware problem, an NVIDIA software problem, or a user application problem. "
According to the page, Error 13 could be caused by driver error, user app error, system memory corruption, bus error, thermal issues, and FB corruption. Basically, everything on the list except hardware.
Were you using the Nvidia gpu when the original problem happened? That might be why when you rebooted that the Intel driver did not display (it was not activated). Your system does not have the latest kernel or the latest Nvidia driver for your card, so we're probably going to have to take guesses as to what may have happened.
Did you use Driver Manager to install the Nvidia driver? It's possible removing the driver and then getting your system files updated may clear this issue. However, your system has Optimus-style graphics (Intel/Nvidia switchable) and we would want to make sure the support files for that are not changed when doing driver changes.
In the meantime I'd like to see if there is away I can repair the driver files first. And/or access log, config files that may help. I have an nvidia card. I was using either the nvidia drivers or nouveau I don't remember which one exactly. Probably whatever is default for 19.1. This computer was upgraded from 17.3
Another message I could get to pop up while doing ctrl alt combos although it too seems unresponsive
