Computer Keeps Crashing After New Install.


Today I've installed Manjaro to a new hard drive but when I play music or have a video playing or have multiple programs open, the computer will crash.

I'm thinking it might be something to do with the graphics drivers but am not sure so can you help me sort this out with the info provided below. Cheers.

Hope this is useful?

stays on AC , no battery
be careful on this point

Most likely the proprietary driver of Nvidia will work better than nouveau.

Excuse my negative hallucinations but I can't see anywhere where it says "no battery". What does this mean?
Also, is the CPU 70.0 C anything to be concerned about?

That's what I was thinking to try but not sure how to do it correctly. Can you give me tips on how to install the drivers?

Here is the wiki on how to install Nvidia drivers

Another reference worth to read:

and two great tutorials:

Thanks for the link.
I've just copied the info and will install the drivers once I change back to my linux hard-drive.
I'll let you know how I get on.

Thanks again for the link. Following the instructions seems to have worked.
Bumblebee drivers were installed automatically and things are now stable.

Thanks for the links. Graphics have now been sorted and a good read had. :smile:
