Hi:

This article at Linux Mint might help.

You could try using Disc Utility (G-parted) to check the partitioning (if that's the issue)

If all of the sudden you think your having a hardware/RAM problem you can run:
Memtest86 http://www.memtest86.com/download.html
http://www.memtest86.com/

I'm not the expert here but what is the output to?
Code:

lspci
Your laptop; how old is it?
I'll keep researching to try to help you. This is perplexing-

I've already tried memtest86 and it was ok.

Hi:

Here's the website for Realtek your Semiconductor card RTL8111/8168B
Readig about this driver for your Realtek Card might help.
http://driverscollection.com/?H=RTL8111B&By=RealTek
Here is the Linux driver for your Realtek card:
http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/rt73usb

You have a Nvidia Corporation Graphics card and it looks like model # 110m Geforce (G72m)
Not sure if your graphics card is causing the "freezing or not"...but it can't hurt to install a driver for you Nvidia Graphics card. I looked for a driver for your card and I could not find one. Sorry-
http://www.geforce.com/drivers
http://www.gpureview.com/nvidia-g72m-chip-113.html

I know you said that you would rather fix your laptop instead of purchasing a new one.
You may have to purchase a new one because I was not able to find drivers that I'm pretty sure that you need in order for your system to work.

You could contact Asus or a computer repair shop and have a tech put new cards in your laptop for a fee.
Or you could put in new cards yourself.

What Causes Computers To Freeze:
I found several articles to help you to possibly diagnose:
http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=107636
http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopi...03054&start=80 (This is Solved)

I noticed that you had a buffer error in the output of 'lspci"
This man discusses what happened with his and how he Solved it-
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=99887

If it were me waseq; I would try purchasing new hardware and have it installed by a computer tech.
That way you haven't spent more than what it would cost to purchase a new laptop.

Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance.
