I recently upgraded my Debian 9 to Debian 10, and ever since, I have been experiencing random freezing. The screen just freezes, and apparentyl the kayboard and the mouse too (for instance, the CapsLock light won't turn on/off).

I noticed that it won't freeze while it's not being used, sleeping, but when I'm using it. Sometimes it goes for almost an hour without freezing, other times it takes only a few minutes since I start using it.

One of the times it froze, I had htop running, and there was no CPU overloading (all cores where working under 15%) and the memory was fairly free.

I have reinstalled the system from scratch twice, and the freezing continues.

The PC has only one system installed, Debian 10.

  • Try to ssh into it, to see if this is a full freeze or not. – Ortomala Lokni Aug 13 '19 at 17:39
  • Try also to boot from a Debian 10 USB key, to see if you can reproduce the problem. – Ortomala Lokni Aug 13 '19 at 17:40
  • I managed to ssh into it from another computer. – francisco sollima Aug 13 '19 at 19:09
  • I have the same behavior on a Asus UX305 laptop. No clue on the origin for now. And very random. What computer do you have? – PAB Aug 18 '19 at 20:38

    I installed Debian 9 and so far there were no problems (two weeks and running). – francisco sollima Aug 26 '19 at 20:18

With my UX 305, I decided to do a fresh install of Buster and it was still freezing. So I installed intel-microcode and firmware-misc-nonfree. Since then, I haven't seen a freeze in 48 hours and I am very hopeful!
