Laptop freezes, mouse only moving, hard reboot only answer


The above issue is on an Acer Aspire E-15 AMD A6-9210 R4 Grahpics.

After hard reboot often goes to initramfs, go through exit, fcsk etc to fix and reboot to grub.

I have Lubuntu installed, was unable to install Ubuntu, I used the "fix" here https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2289346, but the PC is still freezing.
Not sure what else I can do than revert this PC to Windows, which I do not want to do, any suggestions?

No one can can guess if a system could run linux. The system would have to have been fully tested at factory so it could be an issue that won't easily go away. Not sure if it would have had problems on windows either for that matter.

You say you had problems trying ubuntu, what were they?

Can you try other minimal distro or a very current distro like Fedora 27 to test?

Can we assume you have enough ram?
