Re: 8.04 randomly freezing requiring hard shut down, caps and scroll lock flash
Have you tried monitoring temperature probes during hang and no hangs?
I did not have such trouble... But I did upgrade my D630's BIOS
I think trying out methods to cool down the guts of that Dell are cool... Perhaps a laptop cooler base could make you forget the problem. Specially, as you use the computer AC-only...
Perhaps you could try using something as cpulimit to try to lower the max revs on the computer and avoid overheating... however, I agree that if this comes from the GPU, this could not help at all...
I don't know any fix for this currently. I no longer use the D630...
Have you tried changing the video driver... I ended up not using the last version as it would drive the fans crazy... and it worked better.
I hope you continue to share your experience.
Regards and good luck.
