Manjaro freezes randomly, when moving from typing to moving mouse

When the computer freezes, I get errors below. I have tried to search google, but can’t really find anything to fix this

I had a similar problem on XFCE. I turned off the mitigations and it never happened again. My CPU is just not fast enough with turned on mitigations… :man_shrugging:

But turning off mitgiations could be security hole.

@megavolt That didn’t fix the issue. My cpu is pretty fast, so the cpu speed isn’t the problem

Found the issue. I’m using prime/optimus drivers (video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-450xx-prime), and when I’m using nvidia mode, the freezes happen. All other modes (intel, hybrid) work without issues

Could you edit your post and post the output of mhwd --listinstalled so the next person that has the exact same issue as yours knows what to install exactly and then click the 3 dots below the answer to mark a solution like this below the answer that helped you most :
Solution
so that the next person that has the exact same problem you just had will benefit from your post as well as your question will now be in the “solved” status.

P.S. I’m still on the 440 series because the 450 series still has a lot of issues. Try that too if you need video acceleration!
