Hi all. This is my first post in the forum. I’m a bit of a Linux newbie - I’ve used MX-Linux for about 1.5 years and chose to switch to Manjaro for my new build as of March 2.
Motherboard: MSi MPG Z490 Gaming Edge Wifi
Processor: Intel Core i7-10700KF
Graphics: XFX Radeon RX 580 8G, switched to EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 6G to try to isolate problem
PSU: Rosewill ARC Series 650W Gaming Power
RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 32GB
System was running fine until Mar 11, I ran the update and rebooted as recommended. After rebooting I was playing a reasonably intensive Minecraft modpack (which had run smoothly prior to the update), and the system crashed and powered down. I rebooted, tried to reload the game, and the system froze. I waited for it to respond but manually powered down when I heard the fans accelerating (presumed the system was heating up). Afterwards I could no longer boot.
I got the following messages (transcribed):
[ 0.712245] mce: [Hardware Error]: CPU 7: Machine Check: 0 Bank 0: 9000004000010005 [ 0.712251] mce: [Hardware Error]: TSC b3820c9f6 [ 0.712252] mce: [Hardware Error]: PROCESSOR 0:a0655 TIME 1615516484 SOCKET 0 APIC e microcode e0
I can access the GRUB loader either by holding shift during boot, or attempting to boot from live USB (both Manjaro and MX), and I can get into the Grub command line. There are no boot logs since the reboot before the final system freeze.
Changing the graphics card, as noted above (we happened to have it around)
Changing boot parameters in grub edit, including mce=off, 3, single… and I can’t remember any others.
Running Memtest86, which passed once on each of two occasions. I got impatient.
Googling… and googling… and goooooogling.
Am I missing anything obvious, other than that I’ve had hardware errors returned and I haven’t submitted an RMA request yet?
