I just bought this notebook and I've already installed in a new partition Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with 6GB of swap memory.
This is the laptop configuration: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=it&lc=it&dlc=it&tmp_geoLoc=true&docname=c03397517
Sometimes (without any special conditions) Ubuntu freezes. My mouse is blocked, the UI is blocked, Alt+F1 to kill something or to restart is blocked, I can't really do anything...
I've also tried and it freezes with:
- Ubuntu 3D
- Ubuntu 2D
- GNOME Shell
and it freezes both with low and high load.
I can only press the power button (physically) and restart my laptop (and this is not the correct way to do things). I'm using this laptop for work, so I need a stable OS without this freeze.
Someone knows how to solve this problem?
I just installed the proprietary driver from ATI, but it crashes anyway. This morning I started the laptop, I enabled wireless, opened Dropbox and Chrome -> freeze.
When it freezes I cannot:
- Do Ctrl+Alt+F1 to get console access
- Alt+F2 +
rto reload session
- Alt+Print Screen +
It is totally frozen.
