Linux on my PC is freezing a few seconds after startup. I am unable to use the mouse / keyboard. Neither Ubuntu nor Arch do anything after a few seconds. Windows has been running fine for years now.
Found so far:
When I installed ArchLinux, every time I would fire up my PC it would start filling the console with these characters: ^@6^@6^@6^@6^@6... I had to press half the keyboard for it to go away. I think this has to do with the underlying Linux not with a specific distro.
When the PC starts and I don't touch anything It won't freeze. I let it on untill I had to relogg, I was able to log in (Keyboard worked). Mouse was moving but I couldn't click anything. Shortly after keyboard was not usable anymore.
- Unplugged the Keyboard and plugged it into different USB hubs.
- USB Keyboard & mouse (Logitech G710+, Logitech G500) both with cable.
- Asus Rampage 2 Extreme motherboard (http://www.asus.com/ROG_ROG/RAMPAGE_II_EXTREME/)
- Ubuntu 12.04, 14.04, and ArchLinux (used gnome and K).
- Keyboardlayout: Swiss German with Sun Accent
- Tryed another usb and a PS/2 Keyboard
- No USB 3 on my Mainboard
- The Keyboard is plugged directly into the motherboard, changed to different USB ports already.
- Enabled legacy keyboard support
- Turned EHCI off
I can't test things on Linux because it will freeze shortly after start (after the GUI loaded) whatsoever I have access to the drive.
