16

I really really really don't like Windows. The amount of awful updates that I have to do all of the time, the fact that my mother just had Windows updates try and run, fail, try and run again, fail again, and then try a third time. But I'm stuck with it, because if I try and run a Linux live CD, my computer has a fit. Because Ryzen. Fantastic

    Talking of windows updates..

    I just kicked off windows updates on a remote server, and now its hung.

    It was working perfectly fine on my desk earlier, now I've got to go and trudge through the snow to reset it manually, joyful..

    I know, we need a remote reboot switch..

    @Nanos nice. At least at my work the servers are in the next room. Unless it's on another campus, in which case it gives me a good reason to get out of the office for an hour or two.

    I'm not either, my last amd was a X2. but I recall reading something about checking manufacturer date. Maybe it's fixed now :)

    @Null-Device it flashed a couple messages on both Ubuntu and mint about ACPI errors, whatever that means.

    Gcc triggered a processor bug (not the first time, remember early pentium or Cyrix clones). It was reproducible without gcc I think (didn't pay much attention at the time). But I agree it doesn't seem the case. It looks more like acpi / kms trouble to me

    Try what null-device said, and plain console if possible, no kernel mode setting, just vga. That way at least you can troubleshoot it a little better.

    I'm genuinely don't understand how the hell people get so many updates to complain about. I get one every few months. The fuck am I doing wrong lol

    @Null-Device It's been at least 3 months since my last update

    You'll need to update the kernel of 16.04 but it's very good

    If both Linux and windows are acting up did you consider I may be your computer?

    Did you run memory diagnostics?
    Did you run hard drive diagnostics (long manufacturers bootable diag or advanced diag?)

    @jhh2450 same as @null-device, I would check your Windows updates. I seem to get one every other Tuesday, even though I've disabled automatic downloads and automatic updates, I still get a big message come up on top of anything I'm doing that says "THERE ARE IMPORTANT UPDATES, CLICK TO VIEW THEM" and there is no close button. I have to open the settings app and look at the update log.

    If its W10, this can totally stop updates:

    That looks more like a memory bug than a processor issue. Power allocation to memory? Execute bit maybe?
