By freeze I mean that only full reboot makes the system workable again. During the freeze the cursor is motionless, no keys are working (neither AltCtrlF1-6 neither capslock/numlock) and the music starts looping (playing the last two seconds). I have four-core Intel celeron cpu, 120gb sda and 4gb of ram (during freezes no more than 1,5 Gb is used). The system is fully updated, the problem wasn't here when I was running Debian. Freeze usually happens once per hour, usually when midori browser (the problem was here when I was running firefox too) or dwarf fortress are open. I don't have desktop environment, I only have window manager Openbox. The freezing isn't recent phenomena, the system keeps freezing ever since I installed antergos.

EDIT:

It just froze again, this time with no applications running.

Also, usually the system only uses 3-15% of each core of cpu when it crashes, or 100% of one of the core when dwarf fortress is running.

Second EDIT:

I forgot to mention it before, but if the system falls asleep during the freeze, the system is still frozen after the login (but login is possible).

Third EDIT:

When I use the computer on hard surface (desk) the freezes occur less often than when I use it on soft surface (bed), so overheating may be a part of the problem (however they still do occur on hard surface and they weren't there when I had Debian and I was using it on soft surfaces even then).

  • Is this the fully dmesg ? Can you post the result of: dmesg | tail when the problem happens? – Luciano Andress Martini May 23 '16 at 14:08
