Able to log in but system freezes a few seconds thereafter. For example, I was able to open terminal and type three or so letters before system freeze.
While installing Ubuntu Mate 17.10, I selected download 3rd party updates. Before this, while using Windows, I used Dell website to update bios and firmware.
I also notice the fans are practically always on even though I'm not even able to use the computer! The fans seemed unusually loud (but not really loud) for some time once when I was using Windows (nothing but checking email!!), but eventually they did turn off and stayed off. I am not trying to dual boot with Windows. Secure boot is off, and I'm using AHCI and UEFI modes.
I did the full run of diagnostics, and no issues were found.
My understanding is that the problem(s) relate to one or both of these specs, but I haven't found a spoon-fed solution / troubleshooting routine, which I'm afraid I need at this point :(
- 512 GB PCIe SSD
- NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050, GDDR5 4 GB
Thank you very much in advance to anyone who can or tries to help!
