I have a Dell D420 on which I run Linux Mint Gloria. However every once in a while the laptop completely freezes up. First the GUI freezes, then a minute later the ssh session I had with the computer dies. I've heard of strange issues with the Intel GMA 950 chipset before and am now a little suspicious that it is the reason for the issues. In addition, every once in a while when I try to bring the computer back from sleep, it simply flashes its status lights at me like a BIOS error until I reboot.
Anyone have any thoughts on how I can go about narrowing down the issue, maybe go as far as resolving it?
