Cura crashes my entire computer


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura crashes my entire computer

I've had a very bizarre issue which I assume must be because of Cura because it has only ever happened when I've had Cura open (so far it has happened about 10 times in about 5 hours total of having Cura open. I didn't use Cura for two weeks and nothing happened. Today I used it again and experienced 3 crashes). Sometime, whether I'm currently working in Cura or just have it open in the background, my screens turn off and the computer becomes unresponsive. It doesn't even respond to the power off button anymore, I have to turn it off at the power supply and then boot again. It doesn't seem to be related to the load on the computer. Has anyone experienced something similar or has an idea what might be causing this?

    Also having this problem.

     

    Cura 4.0.0
    Ryzen 2700X
    Nvidia RTX 2080

    32GB RAM
    ASUS Strix X470-F motherboard

    CPU, VRM and GPU are liquid cooled, temps are 50C or less.

    I pulled my OC off the CPU and GPU still am getting blackscreened after about 30 minutes in CURA.

    BIOS are updated and I have checked CPU voltage and made sure there isn't a power problem.

    I have almost the identical system as the other user except I am using a Nvidia RTX 2070, and Cura 4.0.0 gives me the black screen of death after a short time...totally kills the machine.  There must be a major killer bug in Cura.  It seems to be random too.

    @bigdrock44 There's more activity on the github issue: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/5265

    Currently it looks like some dependencies that were updated for the 3.6 release are causing it. My personal guess is that they are triggering an issue in the ASUS UEFI resulting in the CPU getting too little power.

    Users on Github are reporting that this issue seems to be gone in Cura 4.1.

    Just had the same symptom occur with Cura 4.1.  Whole system crashed and went to black screen again.  I had Cura open in the background.  I would say the problem still is there.  This only happens when Cura is open.

    Okay, thanks! That's bad news but in a way also good news because we hadn't changed anything to fix it so I was worried that we might accidentally trigger the problem again later without knowing how to fix it...

    this has been happening to me for the past year and I finally realized two weeks ago that it was cura. Replaced every single part in my pc thinking it was defective shit 😂 Rig would crash anywhere from minutes to hours after closing cura. I just think AMD bugs out with it for some reason, Black screen, unresponsive had to hard reset from PSU, but sometimes it would randomly reboot itself. Still happens with 4.1 btw

    Cura 4.2.1 still random reboot, also had to reset PSU because PC crashed so hard.

    NOW I will use Cura within a virtual machine (virtualbox with opensuse) until a solution exists.

    Okay, I finally figured out what superfreezes my PC. It's Cura. And it's version 4.4
    It was pretty hard to find out what caused it. First it felt totally random. Then I noticed I could game like 8h straight without a single crash. 

    Wasn't able to find out any crashlogs or events, other than "power failure", which was caused by me flipping the death switch behind my pc. 

    Finally, only thing I had on was Chrome and Cura. Googled this problem and here I am.

    PC specs:
    2700x
    GTX 1080
    16Gb ram at 3200Mhz
    2x SSD, 1x m.2 ssd and 1x HDD

    Nearly identical specs as above poster.  Same issues hard locks after 10-20 minutes.  Resetting by toggling  PSU power switch is only way to reboot.  Using Cura 4.4.1 and also tried 4.2.1 with identical issues.  Willing to go farther back if anyone has tried successfully....?

     

    Desktop Specs:

    Windows 10 pro

    AMD 2700x

    GTX1080

    16GB RAM @3400mhz

    M.2 1tb SSD, 500gb SSD, 3tb SSHD,  4tb StoreMi Tier Drive.

     

    Cura works flawlessly on my Intel 7700HQ/GTX1070 laptop.

    so sad, my PC crashed again. I am so sick of having my PC crashed while doing work or in front of customers.

    Call me, when you fixed the problem, XD. A crash a day keeps my customers away.

    Cura has worked perfect on my i7 3770K, but now I can't open cura for even 15 minutes. Even a Raspberry Pi is more reliable than the AMD-Cura combination.

    Yes, if you want a stable Cura, use Linux. It's pretty much bomb proof and performance is well acceptable even on an i3.
