Hey guys hoping someone might be able to help me out here.
Recently bought this laptop.
I have been running Linux Mint on a few older machines and was really looking forward to trying it on a new machine. I have had some issues where I get Cinnamon installed and running well for a little bit but then seemingly randomly locks up. I am able to reset it by holding the power button in. Once this happens it seems to then happen each time I try to open Chrome. I have reinstalled several times a few times tried Chromium instead but keep coming up with the same results. The most recent time tonight it happened running Chromium I rebooted and it locked up when I opened it again. When I rebooted I opened the software center and installed Firefox. I was then able to use that to download Chrome since it isn’t in the default repository. Opened Chrome and found it locked up right when I attempted to log in.
I have used mint enough to use it and know my way around but I don’t know how to look into logs or what I should do to try and figure out why this might be happening.
