I’m also getting Xid 61 on:
- mobo: Asus x570 TUF Gaming Plus (WIFI) bios 1407
- cpu: 3700x
- gpu: msi rtx 2070 super
- driver: 440.82
- os: pop os 20.04 lts (aka ubuntu)
- de: gnome
- wm: xmonad (very lightweight)
- running apps: alacritty (gpu accelerated terminal), chrome, emacs
I get this issue around twice a week in linux, but I don’t in windows 10 on the latest drivers there.
When this issue isn’t happening, nvidia-smi says that xorg is using 1gb of vram, which seems very very excessive (i’m just using xmonad with a few terminals running). I don’t know if it’s related.
When the issue happens, like others have reported, nvidia-smi basically hangs and can’t query some things like temp and vram usage. Xorg is pegged at 100% cpu usage and chrome is also pegged. ssh works but I basically just have to reboot.
