Looking for ideas to solve a long term problem... (to be exact Feb.2016)
A overseas friend and I build exactly the same computer system's ( It was my first time to build a Low Power Computer)
We were both getting away from Windows 7 trying to update to Win10 (I know you all remember)
We both choose to go with MX-15 and we both had the same issue and that was our builds were Freezing/Locking up..
We finally changed to a Kernel of 3.16.0-4-amd64 x86_64... and that solved the problem for both of us..All was good..
My Friend is still using MX-15 with the Kernel mentioned above...
Then I had a Harddrive failure ...installed a SSD but by this time MX-17 was the going Version..and it Froze up..
So I installed the latest in the last few weeks MX-18.3... and yes it freezes up also...
Now I am having to force shutdown and while most of the time it will reboot ... But sometimes I get a Corrupted SSD and Install a fresh version..
Now I am feed up enough to take out the memory and the drive and put it in the trash...(Which is my way of saying I am willing to try most things)
My Overseas friend wanted me to at-least ask the forum for help... So that is what I am doing....
If your response is to go back to Kernel 3.16.0-4 then would you please explain how to do this in MX-18..
Thanks in Advance..
Here is a copy of the system....
