So I’ve just been trying to get it to work now. I did what a lot of people said and foolishly did a bios update… It was fine prior, and now I can’t roll back.
So in W10 and W8.1 the system would freeze from the nvidia driver. In linux the system freezes if the DE has any relation to gnome at all.
I honestly think the bios update fucked my laptop and now I can’t fix it. If anyone can help with this I’m not really sure what to even do anymore. The system now randomly crashes after I touch the 1060 and make it do something. If I don’t touch it the system is completely fine.
If the 1060 gets any load at all the fans slowly ramp up to 100% and then it artifacts, bluescreens / freezes, then shuts itself off.
Prior to that bios update, it was fine. I looked up about the update and didn’t find too much bad…
Well… Now I wish I looked more.
Edit: ATM I’m trying older drivers. I’ll let you guys know but ATM I think its a bios and system management control issue.
Edit 2: Driver swap, no change.
