I am having an issue on Fedora 28 where I frequently start getting several error notifications one after another and which then never stop. Ultimately, it leads to freeze/ crash. I have to forcefully restart the laptop(DELL 7567) to work again. This issue can happen anytime and during any type of usage. Images:


Output of some commands:

1. $ abrt-cli st
   ABRT has detected 10307 problem(s). For more info run: abrt-cli list
2. $ abrt-cli list | tail -100
3.  $ uname -r
4. $ journalctl -b |tail -60
5.  $ dmesg --read-clear |grep -i error
6.  $ sensors

I have reinstalled Fedora several times and tried different kernels but the issue persists.


  1. I ran badblocks command on all my partitions, there are no bad blocks
  2. cat /proc/iomem
  3. cat /var/log/boot.log|tail -100
  4. cat /proc/ioports
  5. dmesg
  6. sudo dmidecode -t 0

I know it says 'hardware error' but I cant debug which hardware specifically is at fault. Also, Windows 10 seems to run fine and I can play games on it.

Did you run a fsck on your disk, looks to me you having a disk error of some kind on one of the paste it mention it cannot find /var/log/messages file.

Look at the second image you have posted:

Which part of "hardware errors were detected" isn't clear?
