View Full Version : [ubuntu] Power goes down after sometime.

April 24th, 2010, 09:34 AM

I installed Ubuntu 9.10 in my friends pc.

However, after about half or nearly one hour, the box goes out of power and the monitor hangs with the same screen just before the power down.

And we have to restart by first powering down the UPS.

It is a DUAL BOOT system with WINDOWS 7 and it never happens in there. What is annoying me now is that my friend says, "This is the problem of Ubuntu".

I then installed Opensuse 11.2 but again the same thing happens with linux and not WIndows 7. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Here are the specs of his system:

Motherboard: Intel DH55HC, Version: AAE70933-501, Serial No. - BTHC952006XS,
BIOS version: TCIBX10H.86A.0027.2009.1119.1517
BIOS ROM size - 1024 KB

Processor - Intel COre i5 CPU 661@ 3.33GHz
Processor speed - 3.325GHz

RAM - Kingston 2GB DDR3, 1333MHz

Please suggest what should be done.

How should I clarify the issue?

I really don't understand why this happens.

Any directions shall be greatly appreciated.
