Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia freezes

Post by Chadley B » Fri May 25, 2018 7:00 am

Hey Users,
I've had Linux mint before on an older Asus notebook with a dual boot option alongside windows 8.1, never had a problem.
Since, I've bought a new laptop, ASUS F555B series. Ever since following Foss's tutorial to partition the disk drives and dual boot alongside Windows 10 again, Linux has been unsuccessful to run for longer than 10 mins before it freezes, I've had some time before it happens to install some updates, drivers, and missing Codecs etc.
There is also a problem with the internet, Firefox has been totally slow and often didn't open pages either, have tried to update it, drop the firewall etc even went into the v6 to do with the IP settings -still all painful and slow.
I've read it is to do with the graphics cards on these newer machines and or something else?
Any info and steps to get this sorted out would be gold...It's been a few days on it...reinstalled from a live CD session twice again, and have used the recovery mode often - still it all freezes even before 10 minutes now. Would a hard disk recovery Ubuntu CD do much help in seeing if the disk is damaged too?

I encountered similar issues that were caused by customising themes and icons. It could be a bug here if you have changed these. Restore the desktop theme and icons to default, solved the issue for me.
