weird issue

Charlie-3
My Dell Precision T1600 desktop computer doesn't want to restart no matter how many times I try it. It'll boot up and shut down but no restart. Hmmm..what gives?

How do you invoke the 'restart' command? - In case it is from the GUI,
make sure that System Settings --> Startup and Shutdown --> Desktop
Session --> Default Leave Option is set op 'Logout' and then try to just
logout and see what happens. It should give you four options: suspend,
reboot, shutdown and logout. Do they work properly?

Also, you could try to restart from the terminal (konsole in kubuntunese):

sudo shutdown -r now
and
sudo shutdown -h now

Re: weird issue

I use the latte dock with the widget for logout/restart. I've got the setting to not confirm anything, just to do it.

Going through the main menu using the leave button with the default selection of end current session checked: suspend to RAM works ok. Reboot hangs at the Kubuntu splash screen and at this point I've got to force it into shutdown by pressing and holding the power button for nine seconds. upon reboot, all systems go. No errors through bootup sequence. Choosing shutdown powers down normally without issue. No errors during reboot.

changing the option back to confirm logout:

sitting at the option screen with the timer for suspend, reboot, shut down. I let the timer go to zero with restart as the default option here. Continues to hang at the Kubuntu splash screen like it's waiting at the door to step out and come back in. Forcing shutdown by power button. All other options at this screen work normally.

Power up once again.

Trying konsole commands:

sudo shutdown -r now: executed and hangs at splash screen again.

sudo shutdown -h now: executed and powers down successfully.

Seems like the issue is just the restart part. One thing to mention: after installation and upon getting the remove installation media and press enter window, I remove said media and press enter only for it to hang still.

I can live with it but it's annoying not being able to restart at anytime.

Makes me wonder what's wrong with my system. It works fantastic otherwise. At the end of each installation, it kills power to the usb ports and it doesn't detect me pressing enter on both the wired and wireless keyboards. That sucks.

Re: weird issue

I've also ran the onboard diagnostics with all tests coming back good so no hardware issues from what the BIOS/onboard diagnostics say. I'm about to put in a new PCI wireless card (I recently put a new Gigabit ethernet card in it because the onboard ethernet port stopped working. May have just gotten loose) in it in a few days and I need to purchase more RAM since oddly enough it came with only 4 GBs of DDR3. The processor's a quadcore Xeon. And I'm going to look into a new video card to get off the onboard chipset. And put a SSD in it eventually since the mechanical one's sloooow but damn, it's a whopping terabyte though.

I've also experienced an issue like this, though it's sporadic; in my case I can reboot and logout, but when I try to shutdown the PC it just reboots.
