I can't remember the whole thread but it seems you have an nvidia GPU 
and are using nouveau? If so, try installing nvidia-detect and then the 
correct nvidia driver for your system (from elrepo), and see if that 
helps. Could be a nouveau problem.



I have received 4 of these machines today, with Nvidia graphics.
I installed all 4 ( first minimal install, then Mate ) and that went ok.
So far they didn't shut down.
