I just bought a Dell Precision 5530 with a Xeon(R) E-2176M, Quadro P2000, 16GB, 4K Touchscreen and 256gb SSD.
It came with Ubuntu 16.04 installed, but it wasn't really stable so I installed Ubuntu 18.10. No problems with installation but here are the problems I have using it :
- Sometimes cursor and system freeze and I'm forced to shutdown the computer using the power button
- Fans are running in a mysterious way, sometimes they just start and run @ 2500rpm and stop 10s later over and over again, while the CPU temp is about 45-50°C.
- When the system goes to sleep after inactivity or after closing the laptop, it's impossible to wake it up, I'm forced to hard reboot.
What I've tried :
- Updating bios to 1.6.0
- Installing NVIDIA 415 driver (and using NVIDIA driver instead of xorg-video-nouveau)
Editing my /etc/default/grub file to :
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nouveau.modeset=0"
Do you have any idea what I could do ? Maybe I should try 18.04 but I'm not quiet sure if it's going to be any better.
