    System reboots seconds after reaching desktop

    If the new PSU does not improve the situation, I guess I'll have to switch the processor. I don't think the hard drive can be responsible ;) Fortunately I had kept my old workstation around, and very fortunately it already had an m.2 slot, so I could at least save some of my work. I am teaching...

    There are a lot of Corsairs in that list ;)

    System reboots seconds after reaching desktop

    I got the PSU in March, it's a "be quiet! Straight Power 11 Platinum 750W". Now I have ordered a Thermaltake Rome 750W. My RAM's made by Corsair. I hadn't read the description and was quite surprised when the DIMMs lit up in all colors of the rainbow ;-)

    Thank you. I have ordered a new PSU and hope that installing it will fix the problem. Fingers crossed ;-)

    System reboots seconds after reaching desktop

    Oh! You mean those event logs! Sorry, but since the machine always reboots seconds after reaching runlevel 5, I don't have enough time to do anything on the command line. I could pull out the m.2 SSD and connect it to another machine, but it is in a hard-to-reach place. I'll first try switching...

    System reboots seconds after reaching desktop

    That would be great :-) I haven't even had a chance to properly try out the graphics card before it failed. "Slay the Spire" isn't exactly heavy on graphics ;-)

    I hope so. Thermaltake Rome 750W, 80plus Gold.

    Thank you, I have ordered a new PSU. I hope that 750W will be enough for a Ryzen 3700X and a GeForce RTX 2060 ;)

    System reboots seconds after reaching desktop

    Thank you for your suggestions. I have recently replaced the mainboard, and that involved moving the memory modules and cleaning and reinstalling the fan and the CPU. Unfortunately, it did not help, the system still reboots itself a few seconds after launching. I ran memtest86 without any...

    System reboots seconds after reaching desktop

    Thank you for your kind welcome :) I was unable to download Knoppix (pressing the "Accept" button after the website's disclaimer did nothing, and the knoppix directories on the RWTH ftp server appear to be empty). Puppy Linux shows the same behaviour as OpenSUSE: After a few seconds the system...

    System reboots seconds after reaching desktop

    Thank you for the suggestion, I have tried both SystemRescueCD and Rescatux. SystemRescueCD apparently manages to boot, but after a message about "uevents" only random-looking dots are displayed instead of text. I assume that the software tries to access the framebuffer directly and fails. If I...

    System reboots seconds after reaching desktop

    Thank you, I have tried to find event logs in the BIOS menu, but did not find any. They are also not mentioned in the mainboard manual.

    System reboots seconds after reaching desktop

    Thank you for your suggestion. I have tried it with an Ubuntu 20.04 thumb drive. GRUB started from the drive, I chose to boot into Ubuntu, and the system appeared to stop in the middle of the boot process. The fan suddenly became very loud for a moment, which usually means that the system is...

    System reboots seconds after reaching desktop

    Hello. I have built a Linux workstation recently, with an AMD Ryzen 3700X processor and an Asus Prime X570-P mainboard (plus a Geforce RTX graphics card, m.2 SSD, 64 GB of RAM). The system worked well with OpenSUSE 15.1 for about three months, apart from some instances when it slowed down...
