I would agree with most that it can be hardware related. I will give my experience with Fedora 23. I first upgraded to 23 from 22 via command line, and it died. It wouldn't boot at all. I had later upgraded a desktop from 22 to 23 via a cdrom iso. This worked, however my screen became flaky and unresponsive. This was a Dell Vostro, but my laptop dell inspiron worked fine with fedora 23. My take on it is that fedor may not be that stable, or as stable as other distros.

Well, Fedora 23 is now Ubuntu 15.10. I'm not married to a distro. I was using Fedora because my company is on Red Hat. Since this isn't a vital machine, yet, I just threw another distro on it to test. No freeze yet. Further updates as they happen.
