My machine keeps locking up hard (between 10 minutes and 1 hour after boot) . No keyboard, no mouse, nadda - only the big red switch and reboot will recover.
This problem first surfaced some time ago for me - but subsequent updates seemed to have fixed the issue. Until yesterday when software updater told me there there were updates and i applied them.
I don't think it's flakey hardware as I was forced to run Windows all day today to get some stuff done and the system behaved fine. Memtest reports no problems
Problem is I don't know what information would best help track down the issue (still a noob ). I think it might be related to the Nvidia drivers. But after trying all the options in the additional drivers section (I'm now on the X.Org x server Nouveau) the problem doesn't seem to be going away.
Can anyone point me at the best logs to look for/at (none of the logs I can find (remember noob)) seem to shed much light on the issue for me. Is there some dump of 'stuff' I can post to help track down the issue?
It's so frustrating I'm even considering moving to an different flavour distro - and to be honest - I don't really want to do that.
