List of symptoms: Screen and mouse become frozen Caps Lock LED BLINKING Scroll Lock LED BLINKING ...only way out is to reboot by unplugging batteries and power adapter. seems there is NO way to determine the cause of this issue.

Could not figure out how to solve it so I just installed gutsy's kernel and use it instead and it hasn't crashed at all.So the remedy is to install an old Using the keys makes the external monitor flash off for about one second and then back on so I guess there is a problem with the laptop's display as nothing Now coming to the fact, I experienced many FREEZE 3 weeks ago.

This is when it crashed, so I wonder if it something to do with either being on battery and/or using wlan for me. During the past week, I tried running my computer under AC practically at all times. I am going to try and see if another one... (let's give OpenSuse 11 a drive)... this contact form The DRI fix may work for others on Ubuntu but I hesitate to suggest it is the full solution.

I FLASHed my BIOS to the latest firmware, and it miraculously for the first time got to the install menu, as far as date-time - then froze, and when I exited, Thanks!! Well... I don't really believe this.
