CentOS7 system halted when shut down and don't respond when restart for Dell precision 3660 workstation

Post by lzfneu » 2024/05/15 03:23:58

Hi,
I have installed centos linux release 7.9-2009 and updated to the latest packages in dell precision 3660 workstation, I find centos 7 system halted when shut down and do not respond when restarted system.

I have no idea how to cope with the problems because I won't press the power button to shutdown the computer and have tried to find solution to reference this post:

viewtopic.php?f=47&t=59735

however, the problems still exist.

Any help will be appreciated and thanks in advance.

Why? Why would you install CentOS 7 now when it has less than 6 weeks left to live?

Pick a newer distro, one that doesn't die in less than 2 months time.
The future appears to be RHEL or Debian. I think I'm going Debian.

CentOS 5 and 6 are deadest, do not use them.

What do you mean by this? If I understand correctly, you press the power button and nothing happens. That would make it a hardware problem.

I have installed centos linux release 7.9-2009 and updated to the latest packages in dell precision 3660 workstation,
The 2009 in the release name indicates that this was released in september 2020. I think your dell precision 3660 is more recent than september 2020. You should not expect that CentOS 7.9 is compatible with such a new machine, even when fully updated. The updates only address bugs in the software. The updates do not add support for newer hardware.
