I'm running Linux Mint 17 and am finding that after 30 - 180 minutes (approx) I experience random crashes which persist until I restart. Games will suddenly exit to desktop while browser windows will display a dead page error while the browser remains up.
I wondered if it might be software related and have tried installing Mint 18 on a new hard drive but I keep getting the IO Error 5 as in this question here. I'm not sure if that's related or not (I've also not managed to fix it).
My question: How do I go about debugging this issue and discovering where the problem lies? I'm very confident with the terminal.
