New Linux Mint 18.2 Sonya install on old Thinkpad T61 KEEPS HANGING UP


Hangs up, and I have yet to pinpoint the moment, except that Firefox is always running when it does, but then FF is always running!
Could it be the video drivers?
Brand new Crucial_CT275MX3 SSD.
What output would anyone like to see?

Thank you all...

Did it ever work?

The new ssd worries me most. Some are really too fast for some systems that were never designed to use them.

Can't hurt to run memtest for a day.

If only firefox then maybe I'd look there for some ideas. Also maybe ram use during. Performance monitor or top.

/var/logs may hold clues too.

It could be a graphics issue yes.

Your GPU is Nvidia:-

Code:
 NVIDIA G86M [Quadro NVS 140M] bus-ID: 01:00.0 chip-ID: 10de:0429
Try running the driver manager and install the Nvidia drivers. Once installed reboot the system.

I'm not an expert with Nvidia.

Here's an example:

sdb is a usb and that error is common. Doubt it has anything to do with your issue. Does this usb need to be attached for testing your problem?

I've installed the Nvidia driver, and Firefox was updated, so I'll see what happens.
Thanks all!

Don't forget to restart your pc after installing the Nvidia driver:-
