- Code: Select all
But first and foremost start investigating your /var/log/syslog file (or syslog.1 if you can't find the right time in your syslog file). Look for the time of your crash and check for errors or warnings. At least on the problems I've had, the syslog file had the errors that were occurring just before the crash and those helped find the solution.

Then you mount your HD, and read the logs.
