Specs of my PC:
CPU~Quad core Intel Core2 Quad Q8300 (-MCP-) speed/max~2088/2499 MHz Kernel~4.13.0-39-generic x86_64 Up~7:08 Mem~2843.0/3944.9MB HDD~1000.2GB(38.7% used) Procs~238 Client~Shell inxi~2.2.35
I thought it was an issue with Mint, but last week I got a loan of a better system with 8GB RAM and an i5 processor. I removed my HDD and put it in the other PC and I tried doing some heavy duty video editing and lots of concurrent work and I never managed to get the system to freeze in a week of testing. Thus I am assuming this is a hardware issue (I shouldn't be getting huge freezes just with three Chrome tabs open and a few extensions running, Slack client and nothing else running on my hardware, or should I?)
I noticed that these problems occur the most when either Twitter or Google Maps is open.
So, I am hoping that I will find an answer here about what I could do to avoid these freezes. Thanks for any tips.
