Crashes on Heavy-Duty graphic usage

PascalPascal New Member Posts: 9


my up² runs the most recent ubilinux. If I start Kodi and start a movie (Full HD), after a random time the system resets itself. I first thought this might be a power-relatet problem, but voltage is stable an I never saw a current over 2 Amps...

I had the same problem using windows 10 until I installed the most recent Intel GPU driver.

Do you have any suggestions were to start? I'd really like to see this system work...

PS: Not unsing Kodi (running the server headless) it works smooth even 24/7.

    Hi Pascal,

    Could you send me the output of this troubleshooting script on your UP2 while running Kodi?

    hi, i have the same problem.
    when watching netflix, after random time, my up² restarts.
    Temps are good.
    only happening when youtube or netflix is running for a longer time.
    idle is fine.

    will post script output later

    I have just the same problem: after a while working on Kodi under Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon or running Batocera x64 it crashes and reboots... Will active cooling solve this? I would rather know it than waste my money!

    Please, anyone has notice some improvement after upgrading to active cooling?

    A week ago I upgraded to active cooling my UP Squared based on Pentium . I still have to perform several more tests, but it seems that active cooling improves performance quite fine and prevents that system to reboot randomly.

    Mine even reboots with a 120mm fan attached :/
    Moderators, pls.
    I don't want to RMA it
