Hello, So, Everytime I startup my laptop, the following message shows for a few seconds and then I see the login screen as usual. The message doesn’t cause any problems except for time delay of approximately 10-15 seconds on EVERY STARTUP. What does it say or is there any way to fix it?
I run Manjaro Linux on my Dell Inspiron laptop as the ONLY OS on the machine.
As stated, it doesn’t cause any problems with any normal usage. So, why does it even show, that too for only few seconds.
Also, I have 64bit i5 processor, not pentium as stated in the artice.
Just because it isn’t causing any problems now doesn’t mean that it won’t be causing any problems in the future.
Obviously, it is a hardware error. What you do with it is your decision.
So what hardware changes should I do?
The laptop is 1.5 years old, and hardware problems so early?
In your case I would try some kernel parameters. They can be changed by:
- Use nano to edit /etc/default/grub:
sudo nano /etc/default/grub
- Add the kernel parameter you want inside the quotes to the line starting GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=
- Save the change by pressing CTRL+O together. Then exit with CTRL+X.
- Update grub with
In your case I would test the kernel parameters
Considering that overheating is often a cause ─ albeit not the only possible cause ─ you might want to clean out the fans. It may also be faulty memory ─ such faults don’t always show up when the module is new.
If it’s a faulty memory module, you could run
memtest86+ and let it run for about 24 hours. Then you’ll know which module it is.
OK, thanks @Aragorn and @Wollie.
