Re: Mint Freezes with no Keyboard/Mouse response

Good suggestion. It seems I was using the open source version, but not the recommended version. Changed over to Nvidia's driver and we'll see what happens. *fingers crossed*

I'll be sure to update with the results.

Re: Mint Freezes with no Keyboard/Mouse response

It has been open in many but not all cases. I have also used both Firefox and Chrome with the same results. It really does just seem to be a random occurrence.

Re: Mint Freezes with no Keyboard/Mouse response

Re: Mv command giving unexpected error

Was happy to see so many helpful replies after getting home from work. Thanks so much everyone! After I saw the suggestion that one of the file names might start with '-N' I searched (there are around 2000 files) and sure enough there were actually a handful of them that had that.
