[Bug 1402331] Re: System will periodically lockup with [drm:i915_hangcheck_elapsed] *ERROR* Hangcheck timer elapsed... render ring idle


Similar, probalby same problem here.

- I've been running Kubuntu 14.04 for about a year with no problems. Problem started about 3 months ago or so, not entirely sure about the period.
- The screen usually locks up when using Firefox, today it happen when I switched windows from Firefox to Konsole (the GUI app).  The screen locked half way switching the window borders from blue to grey. (Could it be the screen candy thingy that also does the wobbly windows, what's the name again?). The konsole window border on my right monitor is was grey, is now locked faint blue and should have turned to full blue. The Firefox window on the left monitor was full blue, is now slightly going to grey and locked right there and then.
- I don't use a Dell computer, but some Intel mother board based system (DG43GT with a Q9550).
- When the system is locked, which happens every two or three weeks, I can sometimes change to text console but not always. Currently I cannot access console, but I can log in to the box through SSH.
- Screen blanking (power save) doesn't work when the screen locked.

Linux diablo 3.13.0-49-generic #83-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 10 20:11:33 UTC

When my box locks up, I usually run full patching before power cycle,
some messages in log files may be caused by that. I attached log files
and I believe in the past I have some debug headers installed on my
system which seems to list somewhat useful information.

Some more details in the attached file. I tarred the current /var/log

Please advice.

  System will periodically lockup with [drm:i915_hangcheck_elapsed]
  *ERROR* Hangcheck timer elapsed... render ring idle

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have noticed the lockups periodically since 09/13/2014. I can't
  remember what kernel version was in use then possibly kernel
  3.13.0-35-generic or -36. It has continued periodically through
  versions -39; -40 and now to -43.  The last time this has happened was
  today Dec 13 14:40:57 localhost kernel: [154858.820009]
  [drm:i915_hangcheck_elapsed] *ERROR* Hangcheck timer elapsed... render
  ring idle. At times when it locks up I will have a cursor on a black
  screen and will have to press the power button to restart other times
  it will lockup whenever I'm in an application such as Firefox or
  Evolution. At that time I can usually CTRL>ALT-F1 log in and run 'sudo
  reboot' to restart the system.
