This laptop comes with intel integrated graphics and geforce 1650. I think issue happens because OS tries to use both GPU at the same time or is not properly switching from one to another.
Normally I’m using vscode, chrome and firefox.
When it crash it happens:
Screen goes to full yellow color and freezes. Hold power off button and power on again. Now screen starts to flickering. After 2 reboots it solves the flickering.
App that I’m using freezes, after a moment it will prompt if I want to force quit. Click on quit. I can’t power off/reboot the machine, bash doesn’t work and a few more thing. Had to hold power off button.
I tried to disabled Intel GPU on bios but I didn’t see the option nor dedicated gpu. I think I have a MUXLESS laptop.
So, I need a way to disable Intel GPU and use Nvidia only.
Kernel 5.6 is no longer supported by Manjaro. Before update you should always read forum announcements. If a kernel is deprecated you need to install another kernel, boot into that, remove the deprecated kernel and THEN you can update.
I have an ASUS laptop with a GeForce 1650 and the intel UHD graphics 630. Take a look on Optimus Manager. That’s what I use on my laptop and it works. I use XFCE though not GNOME. I also use optimus-manager-qt. With Optimus Manager you can use NVIDIA only.
