HP 470 Lockups :: Ubuntu 14.04 Freeze

May 18, 2014

I bought a brand new HP 470 (i5-3230M, 8 GB, 750 GB, AMD 8750M 2 GB) with Linux SUSE operating system. I erased everything and installed Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit (that time still Alpha release). I soon noticed the random freezes (=screen remained as it is, no mouse, nothing) that needed a hard power off (5-sec power button). I thought it was an Alpha issue but nothing improved through continuous updates. Now, Ubuntu 14.04 is LTS and officially released for over a month and I still experience these freezes. They occur always; can be 5 min or 2 hours after boot.
I suspect the ATI's graphic card. I've installed the beta version of the latest drivers (from end of April). They officially support Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS and 13.10 but there were people on the forum claiming it installs also on the 14.04. I risked and succeeded. But... freezes are still there.
I'm OK to use Ubuntu down to version 10.04 (if that solves the problem). It maye be related to kernel version.I don't want to use any Windows version. I'd rather sell the notebook if Windows is a solution.

HP Lockups :: Pavilion Dv7 - Random Freeze / Lockup

Jul 15, 2012

My computer is randomly freezing. What happens is I'm doing something I normally do like check Facebook or some other normal website and it just randomly freezes. I have no clue to what is causing this, and it never blue screens. What happens is:

All open windows are "minimized" (on the dock they show as open)My desktop goes black and has no items on itThe mouse goes to the center of the screenThe mouse and keyboard freeze upand above the battery icon there's random letters that always read "sRpIg"Here's a picture of it. My outer camera doesn't work on my phone so it looks weird.

HP Split X2 Lockups :: Touchpad Will Freeze Sometimes After Upgrading To Windows 8.1

Dec 8, 2013

I bought this Split x 2 a week ago and it came with WIndows 8. Everything was working fine until I upgraded to WIndows 8.1. Now my Touchpad will freeze some times and I have to log out and log back in to my profile to unfreeze the touchpad other times I can get it to unfreeze by resetting the release touch screen buttom.
I called HP customer service and they said it was a Microsoft issue and transfer me to them. Microsoft said it was a hardware (HP) Issue and that i needed to go back to the store where I bought it(BestBuy). I took it back yesterday to BestBuy and they gave me a knew one. I did the same thing and upgraded to Windows 8.1 and touchpad issues is back. So pretty sure is not a hardware issue.
All windows updates are completed. I checked the Touchpad's Driver and it is up to date.
NOTE: I plugged a wireless mouse to my laptop and when the touchpad freezes the wireless mouse still works.

Everything else works great on the laptop is just very inconvenient when you are working and you have to log out to get your touchpad to work again.

Dell :: Undervolting Under Ubuntu 9.10?

Nov 20, 2009

So I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 64bit on my M1530 and have a dual boot setup with the other OS being the NSA's Windows 7 64bit.

This is my first Linux experience and I am rightfully enjoying it. Thus far I have been able to figure things out OK, but I am a total Linux newbie and dont know of a way to undervolt.

I havent figured out if its possible to run RMClock and I dont know of a Linux alternative.

Most the stuff I find on google is years old and Im thinking there have been better solutions since then .....

Apple :: 9400m Only In Ubuntu Using 15' Mbp

Jul 26, 2009

I am planning on getting the mbp with hybrid graphics. I wish to triple boot osx, ubuntu 9.04 64 bit, and vista business 32 bit( or maybe 64bit)

I read that the 9400m is unusable in windows, and the 9600m gt is the only option. I was wondering if I could use just the 9400m in 9.04 to get better battery life, as I do not need powerful graphics in ubuntu.

Dell :: E6400 Freeze

Feb 4, 2010

I haven't set my E6400 to sleep or hibernate or anything, just the screen switches off after 5min of no activity.

When i get back to the laptop it freezes/hangs a LOT. It can be anything from blue screen, complete freeze needing a hard reboot, hang for a while before active again, nvidia driver unresponsive and reloading. It changes from happening couple of times a day to not at all for nearly a week.

I had this with the last 3 BIOS versions and i've tried ALL of the nvidia drivers available.

I kept thinking it was the nvidia drivers somehow but it just doesnt matter which ones i'm running.

Acer :: Aspire USB And Freeze

Mar 22, 2010

The USB ports on my 8735G are messed. Everything with my system is fine until I plug something into the USB. After about 30 seconds, the whole computer freezes without any hope of recovery. Only a hard restart fixes it. This happens with mice, USB drives, UDB keys, anything. I tried disabling the power management on USB (selective suspend) and it doesn't help. I've googled the crap outta this and I've tried all the possible fixes and solutions and suggestions I've found. I know the ports or hub are not defective as they will transfer data in small amounts before freezing. However, it will freeze right away (before 30 seconds) if I attempt to transfer anything bigger than 300 MB.

Dell :: Mini 9moving From Ubuntu To XP?

Feb 15, 2009

I'm looking at ordering a Mini 9 but am disappointed to see that I can't get the fully loaded model (2gb RAM, 64gb drive) with XP.

If I were to order the Ubuntu model with all the bells and whistles (including Bluetooth and 1.3 webcam),

how hard would it be to install XP on it? I've heard that the webcam on the Linux version is not the same as on the XP version so I'm wondering if there'd be a problem with drivers, etc

Dell :: Ubuntu 9.10 Released ... And Its The Most Polished Ever ....

Oct 30, 2009

Ubuntu 9.10 is perfect and to be true it too just works out of the box , given the fact that it has to support infinite pc configurations it is great !!!

Hail 9.10 .. and if you wont try you will surely miss something great. Where else do you have a resume and sleep time of 2-4 seconds. bootup time of less than 15 seconds ..

It doesnt have a lot more to take to catch up .. i am certain that in a year or so you will see emergence of linux everywhere .. Just that volume is what promotes things,

if a lot of people start using linux, a lot of hardware manufacturers will be forced to give better drivers and support.

Dell :: Freeze + Loud Beep?

Jan 7, 2009

I got a new laptop in about June or so, and it ran great. I have McAfee for anti-virus, if that helps.

About 2 weeks ago, my computer started to slow down. A lot. My typing would lag on the screen, and some of the letters won't even show up.

I also seem to get an insane amount of pop ups on whatever sites I go on, and I get about 5 popups every hour, on the hour. When I scan, though, I get nothing.

Now, this is the worst part. My computer will completely freeze a lot. When it does, I'll wait a minute to see what happens.

Then, if I click the screen a few times, a single, insanely loud beep will come from the computer. This will happen a few times before I can actually use my computer, and I have to re-boot often.

My computer is insanely slow, like I said before, and it takes forever for it to finish starting up. Half the time, it'll freeze before I can even log in.

If it helps, this started around the time when I signed up for Facebook, if that has to do with anything. I've tried to do virus scans many many times, and I used the Dell Automated PC TuneUp tool. But, nothing seems to work.

Dell :: Studio XPS 13 Freeze On Wake

Mar 15, 2010

My SXPS 13 just freezes on wake up randomly. I am running Windows 7 x64. I recently had the motherboard replaced for a different issue but I can not remember if the freezing problem happened before the motherboard replacement.

Did anyone figure out how to fix the freezing issue? Is it hardware related? I have one month left on my warranty.

Dell :: Windows 7 Random Freeze

May 27, 2010

I have a less than a week old Latitude E6510.

I had four freezes while watching flash videos. I thought the adobe software was bad, so did uninstall and fresh install.

Now I've experienced a couple of more random freezes:
1. system was idle
2. surfing the web on google chrome

I have windows 7 Ultimate x64 and it seems like many people out there with vista and windows 7 are experiencing the same problem. I personally used both and on my other machine with win7 Ultimate x64, haven't had any random freeze at all.

I also have 1333mhz ram, and I know my system only supports 1066. Then I found this thread:
Random Lockups, Intel Chipset

Diagnostics and Dell are telling me there's no problem with hardwares. So I'd like to give a shot at dropping the memory speed. How should I do this?

Anyone having random system lockups with windows 7 x64?

Acer :: Random Laptop Freeze

Feb 25, 2008

I have a random ( to me atleast) with my Acer Aspire 5020. Sometimes it just randomly freezes, and not inside windows or bluescreen or anything like that, the screen goes black or turns off and the whole computer freezes with all the lights on for the power, the battery, the poweradapter if in and also the statusindicator light.

First time it happened out of the blue for like 3 weeks ago, and it scared me, manly becasue i though I would everything on it. After that it happens more often, more randomly, sometimes nothing for a few days, and then a couple of times a day.

When it freezes, i can't even reboot the the only way then is to unplug it and also remove the battery to be able to restart.

At first i though it was something with the power or something like that, so i tried just with the battery on, and it happened again. Then the reverse, took out the battery and power only with the adapter and it happened again. So i don't know whats wrong with it.

The weird thing is that sometimes when it freezes, if i randomly touch or pres on certain parts of the computer, it shuts of or reboots it self, which makes me wonder if it might be a hardware problem. Maybe something is glitching or what ever.

Also i though that it might have something to do with heating, but since sometimes it happens just minutes after I turn on the computer, i have somehow ruled that one out.
