Constant reboot

DenonDenon New Member Posts: 6

My UP board is basically unusable recently because anything I do with any browser (firefox, chrome, opera) causes it to crash and reboot. It started about 2 months ago and has progressively got worse. It started with Ubuntu 16, I upgraded to 17 and now 18.04 and none of the upgrades have changed anything. It is running kernel 4.15.0-52-generic. I couldn't even write this post using the UP because it would crash and reboot. Any ideas? Anyone else having similar problems?

    How did you do the upgrade to newer versions of Ubuntu? Upgrades via apt-get package manager do sometimes mess things up. If possible, try a clean new install of 18.04 (use the option to erase the existing OS on the hard disk). If that does not fix it, test another power supply.

    I ordered a new beefier power supply for it today. Note: The problem started before any of the updates back with Ubuntu 16.04. The upgrades I don't believe are the problem. I'll find out next week if the new power supply fixes the problem.
