System crashed, fsck status 1, working now but what happened?

is the headset plugged directly into the system or a hub? and do you know if it is usb 1.0 or 2.0 or 3.x?

Cliff can’t answer the question as to why it happened, because I use Mint. It did happen to me, loosing sound that is - The solution I found was to add Pulse Audio Volume Control and it hasn’t happened since. Sorry can’t go any further with this.

The headset is USB 2.0 and plugged into the front panel port. System Info has the microphone classified as a keyboard, of all things.

any further trouble with your system crashing?

It really only happened that badly that one time. But I find that the headset produces errors in all the distros I have. If I never unplug it, or if I take precautions when plugging it back in, I suspect that will be sufficient.

Gotta say, it is strange that the mic is listed as a keyboard!!!

i was thinking you might get more help or ideas if you started a specific topic about your headset/sound going out issues (if that is something you are still concerned about). i could move a few of the posts from here that are more about that than the crash if you are interested.

I would say your post about the dmesg command was probably the closest to a solution, so I’ll mark it. None of the other posts are really a problem, so I would have no objection to deleting the back-and-forth after those posts.
