Recently I seem to have my laptop completely freeze with no apparent reason. This seems to only happen when computer is inactive and goes to “sleep” or “hypernation”. It also seems to happen every other or third boot I do.
All of these times the screen is completely blank, keyboard lights up, but seems not to do anything. I can’t even get TTY to work when this happens.
OK, I got two freezes this morning while starting the computer. I checked the logs again and noticed some amd stuttering. Short search recommended BIOS update.
I have updated the BIOS and I am currently in the process of validating if that has resolved the issue or not.
there was another stutter issue a few months ago, but that didn’t really show anything in the logs, it was because of amd fTPM. Let us know if the bios update helped, the bios for my board is still in beta.
After few inactive sessions today, I haven’t experienced any freezes. I want to wait until tomorrow for further testing until I mark it as solved, but as it seems to me the BIOS update seems to have fixed my issue.
For those who are interested, then the error I notice is this one
tpm tpm0: AMD fTPM version 0x3004900000005 causes system stutter; hwrng disabled linux
