I have only recently started using eOS and am loving it. But every once in a while, the entire os freezes. I am unable to access tty, the cursor does not move, nothing works and I have to do a hard reboot.
I am dual booting Windows 11 and eOS 6.1. The freezes are happening when I have a lot of Firefox and chromium tabs open.
I also mostly use an external monitor with the Laptop lid down.
Since the GPU was pulling a lot of power I switched to Intel integrated Graphics:
glxinfo|egrep "OpenGL vendor|OpenGL renderer"
This gives the output:
OpenGL vendor string: Intel OpenGL renderer string: Mesa Intel(R) UHD Graphics 630 (CFL GT2)
Some system information:
OS: elementary OS 6.1 Jólnir x86_64 Kernel: 5.13.0-28-generic GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Mobile / Max-Q
Please let me know what further information would be necessary to diagnose and fix the issue. I really do not want to go back to Kubuntu.
This seems to be an old unaddressed issue as well: eos-hera-freezes-every-day-several-times-a-day
