NVRM: GPU 0000:01:00.0: GPU has fallen off the bus

Problem similar to thread: NVRM: Xid (PCI:0000:01:00): 79, GPU has fallen off the bus - HP Studio G5

I have problem with freezing GPU ‘NVRM: GPU 0000:01:00.0: GPU has fallen off the bus’.

I attached nvidia-bug-report.log.gz, please change extension from .log.log to log.gz

I have laptop lenovo p1 with gpu p1000. I had problems with freezing on ubuntu, debian, now manjaro. On windows 10 everything is ok.

Looking at the logs, it looks like the last time this happened after an uptime of 8 hours. Can you provoke this, e.g. by running an Unigine demo for some time? Please monitor temperatures using nvidia-settings while doing so.

Hi, I think I am having a similar issue using Ubuntu 19.10 with Kernel 5.3.0-46-generic on 1080 ti with nvidia-driver-435. Randomly over the last couple weeks, my desktop display freezes and I’m unable to use the mouse or keyboard. SSH works fine and I am able to remotely run the NVIDIA reporting tool as well as poweroff the host. It sometimes happens just after I enter my drive encryption password at boot, sometimes during a video-game, but seems to happen more often when using a browser. In all cases my syslog shows the message:

Perhaps a seat-belt might help? :D

Attached are some logs. Two are from days ago and the other 2 are from the crashes that happened when trying to make this post today.

I’ll upgrade the kernel tomorrow, unless there is something else I can run to help diagnose the root cause.

This case seems to have the same problem: Regular Xorg freezes on KDE Manjaro - #3 by lencho
In this case, upgrading to kernal 5.6 seemed to solve the problem: Display freeze at monitor turn on for a few seconds with NVIDIA 440.59 - #7 by mozo

On desktops, xid 79 is most often caused by overheating or insufficient/unstable power supply. Please monitor temperatures, check/replace psu.

Another one on battery, after a few minutes of work… On ubuntu GPU crashed very often on battery and power supply, now 90% battery. I will try Unigine demo in a few days.
I did lenovo tests (gpu, memory, etc…) and everything was ok.nvidia-bug-report.log.log (235.6 KB)

It is also useful to check for system bios updates. These often help.

Thank you for the advice. I switched around the power cables since others had success and after some initial failure, I have not had freezing problems for months now…yay!!!
