    Unhappy Ubunu 12.04 suddenly freeze at anytime


    I bought a new machine:
    - Mother Gigabyte GA-H87M-D3H
    - 8GB RAM Kingston HyperX red (DDR3, 1600 MHz)
    - Core i7 Haswell (4th generation)
    - GeForce GTX 650 Ti
    - Solid State Drive Kingston (60 GB)

    I have installed Ubuntu 12.04 64bit and Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64bit (both in the SSD). When I'm using Ubuntu, it suddenly hangs. The only thing I can do is to power off the PC. When using Windows, it happens but less frequently.
    In Windows I have the last drivers for USB 3.0, chipset and AHCI. In Ubuntu, I can not get them. I hope the kernel supports it all.
    When the computer freezes, dmesg shows something like "ata3.00: error". I am not sure what it said, and I can not read it again because after freezing, Ubuntu does not boot any more. So I think the problem comes from SSD.

    I need help please. I have a new machine and can not use it

    Maybe reading through this thread here at the forums can help you?
    Good site to search for guides & how-tos.

    I found that thread some days ago but it didn't help me. It isn't the same dmesg output than mine.

    Here is my dmesg output:

    ata6: exception Emask 0x50 SAct 0x0 SErr 0x4090800 action 0xe frozen
    ata6: irq_stat 0x00400040, connection status changed
    ata6: SError: { HostInt PHYRdyChg 10B8B DevExch }

    This page explains the libata errors:

    I tried to understand my situation but I can't. Please help me, my new computer is completely unusable
