Applications crashing


My applications are crashing all the time (chrome, thunderbird, slack etc).
I work on:
OS: ubuntu 20.04 (dual boot)
Driver: nvidia-driver-510
GPU: GeForce GTX 1660
Motherboard: Prime TRX40-PRO S (bios ver. 1502)
Processor: AMD 3970x threadripper).

How can i solve this issue? Do i need to use ubuntu 21.04 or use another driver version?
I tried following versions without any luck 495, 470, 460

nvidia-settings gave bellow results:

(nvidia-settings:15536): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: 21:32:13.033: g_object_unref: assertion ‘G_IS_OBJECT (object)’ failed
** Message: 21:32:13.301: PRIME: No offloading required. Abort
** Message: 21:32:13.301: PRIME: is it supported? no

dkms status
nvidia, 510.47.03, 5.13.0-28-generic, x86_64: installed

Some extra info, i found the crashing slowly gets worse the longer the pc is on.
When i restart the pc it is stable again for a while.

Kind regards,

Rather sounds like a hardware issue. Please run as root and attach the resulting nvidia-bug-report.log.gz file to your post.

The pc is only one month old. I will upload the logfile here, hope you can find something.

Doesn’t look gpu related, most times chrome is segfaulting in itself, but also apport crashing in python, which isn’t graphics related at all. So I’ rather suspect the system memory to be faulty. Which memory clocks did you set in bios? Anything overclocked? If you have more than one memory module, you could remove all but one, then check if the crashes still occur, then swap modules.

Wauwww, you are good!
The bios came preconfigured and i bought some extra RAM afterwards.
The pc came with (2 x 16GB) of Corsair CM4X16GC3200C16K4 16GB
I bought some extra (2x 16GB) Corsair CMG32GX4M2E3200C16 (so same 3200MHz, cas)

I uploaded a picture from the settings (should be ok i think?)

Don’t know why it says: Forces a DDR4 frequency slower than the common tCK detected via SPD.

The setting is fine, 3200MHz is what the cpu and memory supports.
