Linux Lenovo Legion y530 freezes at restart or poweroff

Hey I just bought Lenovo Legion y530 / 16GB RAM / 255 SSD / 1Tb HDD / Nvidia graphics
with NO WINDOWS preinstalled.

So i booted MX LINUX from an USB. Started the instalation. Wanted to install system on 255 SSD drive.
Everything went all right.... and when a reboot time came it all got frozen. I could see only a desktop, no mouse pointer, not any keyboard shortcuts working...
So I restarted a computer with a power button.
MX Linux started normally I logged into a new system... and when I tried to shutdown a system it got frozen again.

I checked a Linux Mint demo mode from an usb... and when it came to shutdown time - same problem happened again. Frozen screen.

What can be a problem? Nvidia graphics?

There is also one thing -
When I turn on the computer this error appears. What can it be? How to solve it?

I went to the shop to change a laptop for the same new model. Maybe it is a BIOS problem?

please help. Thank you
Adam

This is a problem I experience after new installations. It is related to the Nvidia card and the Nouveau driver. For me it will always freeze on shut down until I change to the Nvidia driver. It will freeze again after that shut down because the new driver doesn't take effect until after reboot. So change your driver.

thank you for your answer.
could you tell me how to change driver?
on MX linux there was a system tools thing called Nvidia drivers,
once I tried to run it the terminal opened, asked me for a root password and... nothing happened.

is there any other way of changing to Nvidia driver?
sorry i am quite noob.

Yeah, I had an AMD Radeon on my old Dell (which I broke while drunk one night [I don't drink anymore ;)]), and it always crashed saying "GPU has fallen off the Bus", when no such thing could have occurred. :\ It wasn't as if I were throwing it like a Football. :p

Maybe it needs a GUI. :) Can you post the dmesg log? :) Running this: dmesg > dmesg.txt should output the entire log to a Text File, which you can then copy and paste from. :) Make sure you run that string of Commands as Root though, either through sudo or su! :) Also, don't worry about being new.... :3 We were all there at one point or another, and you are more than welcome here. :3

Now this could get confusing!



(Wizard appears in a puff of smoke)

Adam meet Adam, Adam meet Adam.

Not disagreeing with what Adam @blackneos940 has said above, but the OP (original poster, that’s you @adamfido) may not be able to distinguish relevant output to copy and paste, and dmesg output will be very long.

I would suggest the following, using a piping filter system.

The dmesg commands will require the use of sudo, the syslog ones likely not.

Code:
sudo dmesg | grep -i nvidia
and

Code:
sudo dmesg | grep -i graphics
and, without sudo unless it tells you operation not permitted, repeat with sudo

Code:
grep -i video /var/log/syslog
and

Code:
grep -i graphics /var/log/syslog
On the above – the | (pipe) symbol is likely on one of your keyboard keys, perhaps above the backslash if so hold shift when typing it. Looks like a vertical line, but is really two shorter vertical lines one on top of the other.

You can literally copy and paste my commands above into your Terminal, at the Terminal end, it is a little different to Windows just use

Ctrl–Shift-v to Paste

If you can copy and paste the outputs to us we can get a better idea.

Include your username prompt and the commands so we can identify any syntax errors.

Cheers

BTW on what (our) Adam said earlier

We are all Newbs in some way, I am just one that has had 5 years of loving this stuff (LInux) :cool:

I've used KDE as my desktop since I started using Linux, back in 2007. I don't use XFCE, which I believe is what you use with MX Linux, feel free to correct me. I do however have an Ubuntu VM that I had installed XFCE on so I could help people out and learn about it myself. So what I found is there is a GUI for it, very similar to what's in KDE. In my VM, there's an Application menu on the top left, click it. Then select Settings which is a fly out menu and then select Additional Drivers. This is the same thing I get in Neon (my distro) and where I change the driver from Nouveau to Nvidia.

And like the other guys said above, we were all new and in some cases we're still new, like me to XFCE. Even old timers have things to learn in Linux.

Adam Hi, in your first Post you had this

MX Linux started normally I logged into a new system... and when I tried to shutdown a system it got frozen again.
and then later,

There is also one thing -
When I turn on the computer this error appears. What can it be? How to solve it?
Can you tell us, are you still able to get into a session with MX-18?

If you are only able to get the errors on the black screen and then go no further, then much of what I have said above is a nonsense.

In that event, what we would need to do is to boot the computer, and start tapping the left (usually) Shift key to call up the Grub Menu, which is invisible to you when you have only one OS on the system.

From there, we can take an option to call up the startup parameters, and disable the ACPI and see if that gets you in for a session. If it does, we can make permanent changes.

So let us know when you can where you are up to and we can better advise.

Cheers all and

Avagudweegend.

Indeed! And thanks for providing. I will try to digest this during my day, but if someone else comes along with good ideas, don't wait for me with the timezones :)

Cheers

OK, holding Post for now, have to leave shortly.

Have a read of this

https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2016/07/key-to-show-grub-menu-ubuntu

... and yes, it is for Ubuntu but it applies across the board.

See if you can get up that Menu, and at the bottom, press e for edit and take a look (but don't touch, for now) at the parameters and get familiar with it. Tap the key from the moment the Dell logo appears.

Esc or F10 will likely reboot you into the session of MX-18.

If you would, you could also let us know the outputs for


Code:
lsmod | grep -i nvidia

#and

lsmod | grep nouveau
These will tell us modules loaded or not loaded. One may return nil output.

Cheers and out for my evening

Dear Wizard!
Thank you for your support and your atteention.
It was very polite and powergiving!

I went to the shop and gave back that laptop,
and just ordered Dell G3 with ubuntu preinstalled.

So now i have ubuntu working and I am happy.
WIll be thinking of changing it for something one day.

But right now my experience is showing me that Lenovo Legion was not the best option for a linux begining user..

All the best Magician!
