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?

What version of Cura do you use? What are the specs of your computer (CPU, GPU, memory)?

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
