1st boot always fails, 2nd mostly succeeds, sometimes it takes recovery mode


Hi,

I'm having problems with booting my computer. I'm on Ubuntu 12.04 with kernel version 3.2.0-32-generic.

It used to be sporadically that when I first switch the computer on, the BIOS would start up, but then when the OS/GUI was about to start loading, the computer would switch itself off. On the second try I would get a GRUB menu (this happens only after the 1st try failed), where I would choose the first option, "Ubuntu Linux 3.2.0-32-generic", and from there it would always start normally.

A few days ago I hoovered the inside of the computer, and after trying to switch it on, it wouldn't start even from the GRUB menu, like it had before after. After a few tries I chose "Ubuntu Linux 3.2.0-32-generic (recovery mode)", and when I get a menu, I chose "resume normal boot-up" without doing anything else. That got the computer running again.

I don't know if hoovering had anything to do with it, because with the next start-up the next day it was again back to the usual 1st-fail-2nd-ok routine - until today, when I had to go through the mentioned recovery mode way again.

Any ideas?

Here's the dmesg output.

The first thing I would do is run memtest86+.

Also see my howto:
http://docs.slackware.com/howtos:har...re_diagnostics

It could also be the PSU, but it's harder to diagnose.

I had memtest86+ installed (or so Ubuntu Software Center told me), but I couldn't figure out how to run it (it couldn't be found on the command line), so I used memtester instead. Sorry for the messed-up free -m output, there was 2003 total, of which 1613 was free, so I had it test 1500 to be on the safe side (I think).
jjonas@jonaskone:~$ free -m

I could do it several times over. The next thing I'll check is whether I can see the power supply unit (PSU) voltages with BIOS, like you advise on the website you provided the link for.

EDIT:
VCORE voltage - 1,36
3,3V - 3,328
5V - 4,999
12V - 12,296

Technically the real 5V voltage is not greater than the nominal voltage (as you say it should be on your website), but 3,3V voltage is hardly that either. Is this a problem? Offhand the PSU problem symptoms that you refer to on your website don't sound like what I'm having, as there's never been any hickups after the OS/GUI has begun to start up.

So, the second time it crashed, was it at the exact same time of boot ? 'A few days ago I hoovered the inside of the computer', does this mean you used a vacuum cleaner ? I would use a compressed air can to clean out dust.

You should just download the UBCD or memtest86+ CD and check the entire RAM for a number of runs:

Re boot & crash: I'm not sure whether there is technically a point where it's not called "booting" anymore, but instead it's just starting up the OS/GUI, or whether the latter is also included in the "boot sequence".

To me it seems the BIOS starts normally, and just about the moment when the GUI splash screen is about to appear, the computer switches itself off. When I start the computer, the BIOS text ('press DEL to run BIOS', some system information etc.) appears as normal, and then there is a brief blank screen phase before the splash screen appears (this is the normal, working start-up sequence). The switch-off happens always at the same point after the BIOS text, just before the splash screen (= the text 'Ubuntu' with five [or how many was it] dots blinking in sequence).

Re hoovering: Yes, I used a vacuum cleaner. I hoovered the dustballs out of the case and fans, didn't touch motherboard etc., just used suction power. In my opinion it was quite gentle. I'm not sure it had a negative effect, it might have been a coincidence that I needed to use the recovery mode to start up the computer after the hoovering; after all, the start-up sequence has been deteriorating gradually. First it was only sometimes that I needed the second try, then it was every time, now I need the recovery sometimes.

I'll try what you suggest later this weekend.

That's just strange. Is the switch-off sudden ? I mean does it suddenly halt ? Or does it say "Shutting down" or some other warning, maybe overheating ?

Try checking the logs, they are usually at '/var/log/' syslog and messages. Scroll to the bottom and try to find the time when it cut off suddenly.

Yes, the switch-off is sudden, no warnings or other text.

When I first switched the computer on today, it refused to start the first time (no surprise there), and with the 2nd attempt I noticed that I can actually run the memtest86+ from the GRUB menu, so that's what I did. I let it run the tests two times, with no errors found, then I pressed Esc to reboot.

Reboot worked without recovery mode. Too bad I can't remember now whether I still had to go via the GRUB menu (with the normal generic option, no recovery mode) or whether it booted without it.. but when I checked the syslog, to me it seemed like the first entries in it from today dealt only with the latest boot-up, the successful one. I don't know at which point the syslog starts recording events, but could it be the boot-up is interrupted before this point..?

As to the entries in the syslog, I can't really tell if there's something there; in any case don't have anything suspicious-looking to paste here..

Years ago in different circumstances I used to have my then computer on the floor in a flat that was really cold, and once in the winter the BIOS didn't allow the computer to boot because it was too cold on the floor level (like +2 degrees C or something). I'm wondering: it has been lately that the first boot of the day doesn't succeed without recovery mode, but today it did because I had run 1h 20min worth of memtesting before. It's normal room temperature in my flat, but could it be that there's some temperature-related problem with the computer start-up..? I mean that memtesting (or just keeping the power switched on in BIOS setup) made the temperature go up enough to make something work. This is just a wild hypothesis, and I don't know how to test it, and which components might be at fault, but maybe someone else has an idea..

Do you hear and beep codes when it boots or shuts down ?

So far, I think it is the PSU or maybe the mobo. You can try to run some of the other tests to rule out other components like the HDD.

Seems to me the issue is totally hardware based on the original issue of powering up.

To test an idea, unplug the computer and press the power button a few times then return it to ac and power it up. See if any symptoms change.

It also sounds like hardware to me, since it seems to happen immediately on power on, and not after the OS actually starts to load. Does it also happen when you try to boot to a Live CD?

Also, try reseating all the memory chips, cables, and plugs.

Hi,

thanks for all the tips, I haven't tried them yet, I just read them now as I came back to report a thing I found. Like I said before, nowadays "the first boot-up of the day" always fails, and I have to try several times etc. But if I "first boot" so that I press DEL for BIOS and then just let the BIOS screen sit there for a few minutes, then exit without doing anything, the computer starts up fine, all the way, no hickups, GRUB menus or anything.

I report back if I find anything new.

Hi,

it's been a while, I couldn't find what was wrong, so I just stuck with it about a month ago the computer refused to start at all. Well I got it running after 20-30 tries, so I kept it on until I got it into a repair shop. Before that, though, I ran memtest just to check, and i got lots of errors in test 7 (random numbers), like hundreds of millions. Earĺier there had been no errors.

Anyway, the repair shop guy said the PSU was busted (and also caused the errors in memory), so they got me a new one. Now it's working. All in all it cost me 140 in parts (new PSU) and work. Not a good deal, but I can live with it.
