Random forced shutdowns
« on: June 11, 2019, 10:08:46 am »

I recently installed Peppermint 10 on my old 32-bit laptop (HP Pavilion dv2000). Everything works great but the Peppermint keeps shutting down the laptop frequently. This usually happens during high-intensity tasks like installing software, updates or extracting a compressed file. I thought it was the CPU over heating or something but I installed Psensor and temperatures are usually around 60-70 C.

I previously had Windows 10 installed and it never did anything like this.

Any idea on fixes?

Code: [Select]
sudo sensors-detect
and answer Y or yes to all the prompts.

when that's finished run:
Code: [Select]
/etc/init.d/kmod start
did that help ?

Can you post the output from:
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz

Thanks for the help! I ran those commands. Here's the output:

Update: I tried some tasks to bring up the CPU and Peppermint still auto shuts down. One thing that always seems to trigger shutdown is when I install an app from the software centre while browsing the web. CPU tempurature goes up to around 85 C and the laptop auto shuts down when the temp reaches around 90 C.
