daniewicz Posted November 15, 2009 Report Share Posted November 15, 2009 My daughter recently received a new Toshiba laptop from Best Buy as a gift from the grandparents. She is 9, so her only computing need is web-based games. I tolerated Vista for awhile, but then one day the laptop had trouble booting and I used this event as an excuse to wipe the drive clean and install the KDE version of Mandriva 2010.0. All seemed to be fine for a week or so and then she began to have trouble with the laptop intermittently freezing for a minute or so. I ran fsck on the boot and home partitions and found errors which were repaired successfully. The freezing continue however, with dmesg showing hard disk errors. At this point I am ready for some warranty activity. For no reason at all, I asked my daughter log in using the xguest account instead of her own account. To my surprise, she has been playing for several hours with no freezes. :o [moved from Installing Mandriva by spinynorman] Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
