See if the crashes is fixed if not install select 4.13.0-32 see if this fixes the crash if not must go back to 4.10. how to install time...

Re: How to update your kernel for Meltdown

Not issues currently but I will keep the 4.4 as a back up just in case. Never had to change kernels before how do I change to another one? I ask because my T520 did it on it own which I find troubling.
