I have a Sony Vaio in which I'm dual booting XP and Mint on. XP is painfully slow, and Mint likes to lock up randomly, to the point I have to power off to unfreeze it.
The Windows issue is fixed by one thing. Wiping and re-installing. Though I'd rather just have Linux on it as it's faster, but I need to ensure it's going to be more stable than it is now.
Any advice on the Mint issue?
