Something looks strange to me.

Fedora is now working after reinstallation. I have another HD on this PC (not connected at the same time) with Fedora 17 and Ubuntu 12.04, both 64bit, installed (dual boot). It has been running for sometimes without problem.

I agree, mine worked too, for a while after reinstall, I'm not good enough to recover that, and frankly I don't have time to wade through the stuff people were saying to cure it, when half the time I couldn't even get to a command line, out of interest, were you running firefox?
I had this strange feeling that after installing firefox and installing some add ons, I had this ever so slight feeling that it might have been related to that, but never had the time to work out which one, reason being, I had a fresh install that seemed to work fine, all updated, fine, then I put in my add ons using the febe tool and within an hour a brand new install had died in the same way....as for mint....well it's still banging away, although I prefer Fedora a would like for someone to be able to explain to me the issue. Getting them to accept the issue....now there is another thing.
