Hi everyone, i’m new to Linux, so i need some help.
Yesterday I installed dual-boot Manjaro xfce on my Laptop (Dell Inspiron 5567).
Everything worked fine, except for a black error screen after the GRUB selection, but no big deal.
Today i decided to reinstall, switching to KDE Plasma for better HDPI scaling.
Everything installed correctly, i restarted, and everything booted up correctly (except for that same black error screen).
I proceeded to set up display settings, and rebooted to apply. It booted correctly (again, after that black error screen).
Then i installed some programs (chromium, visual studio code, gimp, inkscape, etc.).
I then noticed that when i opened Dolphin file manager, there was an error (“unable to create io–slave”, because it could not load some library of kio [or something like that]).
Basically it wouldn’t show any file. Therefore i decided to reboot to see if it solved the problem.
Now here’s the real problem: i rebooted, selected Manjaro on the grub, and got the same black error screen, but this time it would stop there. Usually it would go past that error very quickly and then boot.
Now it just stays on that error screen, and won’t boot.
Here’s the black error screen that i get everytime i boot (i transcribed it):
[ 0.137371] mce: [Hardware Error]: CPU 0: Machine Check: 0 Bank 6: ee20000000 40110a [ 0.137375] mce: [Hardware Error]: TSC 0 ADDR fef1cbc0 MISC 43880014086 [ 0.137379] mce: [Hardware Error]: PROCESSOR 0:806e9 TIME 1599678911 SOCKET 0 APIC 0 microcode b4 [ 0.1373831 mce: [Hardware Error]: CPU 0: Machine Check: 0 Bank 7: ee20000000 40110a [ 0.137385] mce: [Hardware Error]: TSC 0 ADDR fef1ce40 MISC 7880014086 [ 0.137388] mce: [Hardware Error]: PROCESSOR 0:806e9 TIME 1599678911 SOCKET 0 APIC 0 microcode b4
I dont’ know what any of this means, but why does this prevent boot now, when it didn’t before?
What can I try to do to fix this?
Thank you very much.
