I have recently installed Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS on Dell XPS 15 9618 which has
- 16 GB RAM
- 8th Generation Intel Core i7-8750H Processor (9MB Cache, up to 4.1 GHz, 6 Cores)
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti with 4GB GDDR5.
Now the issues I'm facing every day is that the OS freezes completely and randomly. Randomly as in like when I'm trying to connect to wifi, or open a terminal, etc. I cannot move the cursor and cannot kill process suing SysReq+ALT+F or SysReq+ALT+K.
The only options seem to be working are either I use SysReq+ALT+REISUB or turn the PC off by holding the power button. I read on the internet that the crash might be due to the unresponsive X server. However, I am not sure how to confirm if that is the issue or there is something which causes the system to freeze.
Are there any other approaches to prevent the system from freezing or at least reducing the frequency?
