Here are the specifications of my laptop:
- Processor: Intel Core i7-8550U
- Graphics adapter: NVIDIA GeForce MX150 - 2048 MB
- Memory: 16GB DDR4-2400
I have been running it with Ubuntu 16.04, 17.10 and 18.04 with no issues.
I decided to wipe the laptop and install a fresh copy of Ubuntu 18.10.
Now, the laptop freezes after login.
I quickly do Ctrl-Alt-T and
top to track what's causing the freeze and often see that a process called
kworker/6:3+events would jump quickly to 100% CPU, frequently followed up by another
kworker process also using 100% CPU.
I am desperate for a solution at this point, and am downloading the 18.04 ISO on my work laptop as I am writing this post.
