Sorry, don’t see any real issue why the system behaves like it does. Eventually upgrading the BIOS to the latest version available may help in your issue as there are some indications that lead to that assumption in the log.

Also please check the power related settings in the BIOS, but can’t assist you further as almost every bios is a little bit different.

  1. Thank you very much for your answer, but unfortunately the situation with laptop went worse… From recent time it shows the black screen in the middle of the work… One time it shows the message
  2. How can I update bios on ASUS?

Hi, according to what is shown on your photo, it seems that your device has some issues with the hardddrive and/or filesystem it contains.

If it’s just a “soft-fault”, this can be fixed with the following procedure:

  1. Start your computer with a Endless OS Live Media (USB or DVD), open Terminal there and run:
sudo fsck -fsyM $(blkid -t LABEL=ostree -o device)
  1. This will yield a output similar to:
  2. In my case everything was good, your output may state that there were repairs performed. If the command hangs for a long time or if it was unable to perform these repairs, your drive may have a hardware fault and needs replacement.
  3. Reboot your computer if the command finished successfully and verify if it now works without any issues.

Please keep us informed. If you don’t have Live Media at hand, please also let us know, there is another method which can be used to perform the above task, but it’s more complicated to do.
