Below I explain the issue and what I’ve been doing for a work around. I would like to not use the work around method because it requires me to open the NVIDIA X Server Settings everytime I reboot.
Normal condition: Boot up desktop, don’t do anything, fans on GPU aren’t spinning, at a random time the screen will start to have a crackling look and will become very glitchy, then after some more time the screen will go black and haven’t found anyway of recovering it other than a hard shutdown and reboot. I can speed up the time it takes to get a black screen by running a ML training job, but it crashes when it’s doing nothing too.
Work around: Boot up desktop, open NVIDIA X Server Setting → Thermal Settings → Enable GPU Fan Setting → set both fans to 100% and apply. This seems to fix the issue. A few times it still crashes soon after, but works most of the time.
Questions: What’s going on here? Why aren’t the GPU fans spinning automatically? Is there a way to have the GPU fans set to 100% on boot up?
I can provide videos from my phone if that would be of any help.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
