I turned off my computer today and it kept turning back on for a millisecond and then turn back off, even when the power was unplugged (only for about a minute though). I solved the issue by disconnecting the main connector on the motherboard. But I turned it on and it worked fine until it froze when Debian was booting. So I tried booting into recovery and then misstyped "apt" and it said "segmentation fault" and froze. I am now in the process of testing the RAM with memtest86+. Any ideas on how to fix the issue? Anytime I try to boot Debian, it just freezes. Or if I type anything in recovery it freezes.

I prefer Linux. Windows 10 is just to invasive for me.

Hi Alex.
Here is a few other ideas. These are the same thing's I would suggest. Before anybody says it Ubuntu is Debian.
 

How to Fix an Ubuntu System When It Won't Boot
 
 
 

Some problems are more complicated than others and require additional work to isolate the issue. So, try not to overwhelm the user with possible conflicting information during the troubleshooting process. Wait for the user to report back that step 1 is done and the result before suggesting anything new,

Stay on topic Please.

Unless you know exactly what the problem is and how to fix it.
Thank's
Nick.

When you ask for support you should also include as much information about the problem as possible. Including all of the important details in your first post will greatly speed up the entire support process and allow our volunteers to better assist you. While you may think a particular error message isn't very helpful, it may be the key to resolving your issue. Some details we are looking for would include, but not be limited to:

  •     Your distribution's name (Mint, Ubuntu, Debian, etc), version (17, 14.04, 7, etc), and architecture (32-bit, 64-bit).
  •     Provide relevant information about your physical hardware or installed software.
  •     Share relevant log files, screenshots, detailed error messages, or anything else that could be used to troubleshoot your issue.

Did you try the suggestions I posted?

No this is fine.

 

 

While Microsoft gives you Windows, Linux gives you the whole house.

I love it.

Nevermind, my RAM slots are going bad. Just had to jiggle them around a little. Everything is working now.

Keep an eye on the power supply;  commodity PCs typically use a barely adequate one.  When something is going bad you get all kinds of weirdness happening.
