Lxde probelm

Hi group,

enclose is my computer screen after 5 hours of working! Is there any comment to get ride of this issue.

View image: crash

I use 12.3 and my graphic is Nvidia (opensource driver).

Thank you in advance.

Well, I would try to install the proprietary driver.
What specific graphics card do you have?

If it only happens after 5 hours, it could be hardware problem as well, overheating maybe?

lspci -v | less | grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation G86 [GeForce 8400M GS] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller]

I agree with overheating because fan works with max speed nonstop!

Do you have any idea for decreasing the graphic heat?

Well, do you have the problem since installing 12.3 or did it only appear recently?
If it’s the latter I would first have a look at the graphics card and clean the fans. But apparently this is a laptop, so this might not be easily possible. You could try using a cooling pad though.

And you could nevertheless try to install the proprietary driver. The open source driver’s support for your gfxchip’s powermanagement might not be that good.
Here’s a how-to.
Please check which kernel you are using with “uname -a”. If it is not kernel-desktop, then replace “desktop” accordingly in the second line:

sudo zypper ar ftp://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/12.3 nvidia
sudo zypper in nvidia-gfxG03-kmp-desktop x11-video-nvidiaG03 nvidia-computeG03

After a reboot, you should use the proprietary driver then.
