This morning my fans started overworking as I was using my laptop. Used
systemctl reboot to reboot, fans were still going, so I did a full shutdown. My laptop came right back on. Using the power button does the same thing. It stays off as long as I hold it, but will come back on to the ASUS startup and GRUB screens like normal when I let go.
CPU and RAM loads are normal and my laptop is not hot, just the fans are overworking (not going crazy, but very audible).
Currently running kernel 4.19, booting into 5.3 does not change the outcome. Suspending by closing the lid works fine.
Dropping into TTY and using
shutdown now does not work, and there are no error logs in
journalctl -rp err -b-1 (from this Reddit post)
shutdown -h now yields the same results.
Disabling fast boot in BIOS does not work.
Before this, I have rebooted maybe a week ago (or longer)? There have been video driver updates since then, I'm aware.
