Ubuntu A10-7890K GIGABYTE GA-F2A88XN-WIFI

GPU: Radeon R7 (integrated)

OS: Ubuntu 15.10 64bit

Driver: fglrx 15.201.1151-150908a-188977E

Display: TV Philips 42" LCD 1920x1080 @60Hz / HDMI

MB: GIGABYTE GA-F2A88XN-WIFI (BIOS F6)

CPU: AMD A10-7890K (Microcode 0x6003106)

PSU: ZALLMAN ZM350-FX 350W 80 Plus Bronze

RAM: 2 x 4GB Kingston HyperX FURY 1866Mhz DDR3 CL10

About a month ago I bought this computer, it works normally for a time, but then it freezes (mouse and keyboard with no response, sound or music enters in loop of 1s). All the time that this happens is during games (X-COM 2, Civilization V and others). I found some possible solutions on Internet and tried all of them:

-> update BIOS (was F5)

-> disable C6 in BIOS

-> disable IOMMU in BIOS

-> lower NorthBridge frequency in BIOS

-> check CPU temperature (never over 75ºC)

-> try another PSU (used Corsair CX-500W)

-> test memory (used Linux Memory test, all passed)

Can someone help? Is there any specific configuration that I should try?

Thanks,

Mathias

If the only time your computer is freezing is during game play, then you're problem may not be the hardware.

Look into the software, Ubuntu has been know to be a little buggy when it comes to the latest games.

Update Ubuntu, the drivers, Steam, and Games.

I found an update for driver, I will install later and see what happens. I tried Steam OS too and the behavior is the same (guess is exact same driver).

Its first time that use Radeon GPU. I had another 3 PCs with Linux, AMD CPUs, but all with NVidia GPUs and never had problem like this.

Thanks!
