IBM T61 random reboot. Possibly graphics related. Linux mint 17.0


Hello,

I've been battling random reboots on my T61 System with linux mint for some time now.

Here's an example of a log file

Quote:

The problem does not appear to happen in a predictable fashion, so i suspected hardware. I installed a new fan with alumina thermal paste. I installed thinkfan with the following parameters.

Quote:
sensor /proc/acpi/ibm/thermal (0, 10, 18, 2, 0, 0, 0, 0, 18, 10, 10, 0, 0, 0, 0)

(0, 0, 55)
(1, 48, 60)
(2, 50, 61)
(3, 52, 63)
(4, 56, 65)
(5, 59, 66)
(7, 63, 32767)
I did some testing with cpuburn to stress test the system. Temps reached near 100C but i didn't think that was a lot. There's some strange behaviour with the fan logic. I've got a screenshot but i don't know how to post it.

The kernel in grub is vmlinuz-3.13.0-24-generic.

I'm writing this in the software rendered environment from the linux mint recovery mode. It seems stable, i've never had a random reboot in this mode.

I appreciate any advice about this problem.

Cheers,

Ryu

100 degree Fahrenheit or Celsius? If Celsius this is way to hot and likely the cause for your issues.

For a screen shot. I go off site. https://imgur.com/

Then upload my screenshot. Grab the direct link they give and post the link here in my reply. Example from my bike tuner laptop.

thanks for helping me out.

Yes the temperatures were in celcius!! I didn't think that was a lot for a laptop? Oh no. Maybe I'll try a new fan or something.

I've managed to upload a screenshot of the fan behaviour on this website.

Those temperatures are way to high, which will cause the system to shutdown eventually. Over time this may even damage the hardware. Check the cooling system, maybe try to not regulate the fan.

Thanks Tobi. I'll try to check the system out and disable thinkfan.
