I have this new pc sony (in title) and I installed ubuntu 12.04. I'm using kernel 3.2.0-41-generic-pae (I installed 32 bit version even if my pc is 64 bit because there were some errors during the installation if I tried 64 bit one). The problem is that sometimes the pc freezed completely, I can't even do ctrl+alt+f1... I have to perform sudo iwconfig wlan0 power off thinking that it was a problem of the wifi device (i had the same problem on another pc with kernel panic caused by the wifi adaprted and that command worked).. Still no results. I have installed linux backported drivers wireless but nothing. How can I solve this? Maybe some problems in grub? Thank you so much
