hpt610 error: Hptc-dm main process (6340) terminated (And counting)

I have had this problem with several HP t610 Thin Clients. When i load the machine with a new image it works fine, but the error comes back, once every 2-3 months. With the older models i did not have this problem at all.

I took this fix and modified it from here http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/Workstations-Thin-Clients/Thin-Client-t-5565/td-p/5843473?adid=10428184... thanks mcolson

 

While the screen is scrolling

 

Hit enter you should see a log on prompt scroll past log in with root and then password root


Once at the hash "#" type stop hptc-dm and hit enter.

 

At this point you will be at a # command prompt and the errors will be gone. Now you have to remove the corrupt xorg.conf file that is causing this headache so do a 
cd / hit enter
cd etc hit enter
cd X11 hit enter and then run an ls you should see a xorg.conf and an xorg.conf.orig we want to delete both of these. They will recreate so no worries. 
So now type rm xorg.conf hit enter and then type rm xorg.conf.orig and hit enter. If you do another ls you shouldn’t see the xorg.conf files any more.
Type shutdown -r now hit enter

The issue is with a corrupted screen refresh rate variable in these xorg.conf files, not entirely sure of the cause but it seems to happen from various points.

 

This worked for me on 2 HP T610 Plus clients

 

I'm going to contact HP to see if there is an update to stop this happening.

I figured out that It happens to the Thin clients where i have changed the resolution to 1440x900 so the old folks can see the screen better ;-)

 

But it should not happen, the older thin clients i never had this problem.

After thinking about it, i also set the refresh rate to 60, i'am going to see what happens when i set this to auto and only the resolution to 1440x900.

HP has called me, they picked up the thin client, i have it back. hp told me to replace motherboard, instead hp did a bios upgrade. The good thing is that hp could duplicate the failure.

I wil keep you posted!

I've been off for a week so finally starting to follow this up.

 

I would be curious to know if they come back with a fix.

I'll contact HP at this end as well to see if they come up with a fix.

 

Hopefully a quick BIOS update and all is well
