I had asked this question before here. Still having problems, and I don't know where to start. It just froze again, and I shutdown the HP 15 Notebook laptop. I'm now on my old laptop to preserve any logs that were left behind as it was frozen.
I installed Xubuntu 18.04 from a live USB stick, I can boot up with USB, and grab any logs before I restart it from the hard drive if helps. Let me know what you need from me to make this question more answerable. I'm a complete noob, and have read other threads about Xubuntu freezing, but it would be so much easier if someone can point me to the right log that would help diagnose the problem.
I'm able to use my PC sometimes for a few hours, sometimes it will freeze after a few minutes. Usually while I'm browsing the web with Chromium. I have uploaded my syslog to pastebin.com. Hopefully this is what is needed to further help diagnose this problem.
This ACPI BIOS Error bug is found 34 times in the syslog:

After finding the boot log and scrolling through that log, these are the last two entries before the PC froze:
