It is a server model but I am using it as a desktop. I tried to reply to this message and include a screenshot of a couple of error messages on the display before it spontaneously reboots but it seems the message never went through, nor did I receive an error message.

The error messages were:

[Firmware bug]: The BIOS has corruped hw-PMU resources (MSR 38d is b0)

nouveau 0000:07:00.0: priv: HUB0: 085014 ffffffff (1f70820b)

ERST: Failed to get Error Log Address Range.i_dj_raw_event: inval

mce: Unable to init device /dev/mcelog (rc:-5)

logitech-djreceiver 00003:046D:C52B.0003: logi_dj_raw_event: invalid device index:0

After which the reboot where it asks me for my LUKS passphrase.

When I looked I could not find any messages i /var/logs/messages.

Suggestions appreciated.

Thank you.

  • I finally decided to give the native nvidia driver a shot and installed it following instructions by T Helmsley I found on the web.

    Surprise, surprise! No more lockups, no more spontaneous reboots and no more error messages from the Logitech mouse! Not only that, the nvidia configuration program seems to offer settings I could not easily find for the nouveau driver. Last, but not least, now both monitors go to sleep at the right time (using the nouveau driver only one of the monitors went to sleep.)

    The error message about “Failed to get log error address range” remains but I gather that has something to do with a BIOS incompatibility that HP and RHEL have been pointing fingers at each other over for some time.
