I am running Ubuntu on a Dell Latitude D620 and today I performed an upgrade in which for me the new kernel was installed (2.6.24-19-generic).
Since this upgrade I have been experiencing the same issue as is described in the (archived) thread 7.10 randomly freezing requiring hard shut down, caps and scroll lock flash.
Due to the fact that I am running Hardy and the fact that the other thread is archived I decided to start this new thread.
What I would like to know is how I could diagnose this issue. Are there -- for example -- any log files I could look into to see what happens just before the freeze?.
Any help to resolve this very annoying issue would be highly appreciated.
