Not sure if general help or installing best fit, I think general as I did manage to get Zorin lite installed 2-3 times and it was a short while before it locked up/ froze
Purchased a micro PC, intel n95 I think.
It has no ps/2 connectors, shouldn’t be an issue but worth remarking on.
I installed Zorin lite 16.3 after wiping off the windows OS
I find it keeps locking up/ freezing, thinking it is the new PC faulty
also I ran memtest 86+ and it passed that.
I reinstalled windows again, this doesn’t lock up.
Ran Zorin as a live USB and it locks up.
Reinstalled Zorin again, locks up.
Reinstalled windows works fine.
Installed Linux Mint, doesn’t lock up but screen resolution as VGA!
Installed Linux Mint Edge doesn’t lock up and screen resolution better
but I don’t like the look of it (Cinnamon)
so I have now installed Solas Budgie
this also appears to work, as all other devices I use use Zorin I would prefer to use Zorin on this new micro PC.
all I can think of is it is something to do with the kernel so I would appreciate some feedback as to if you also think this is due to the older kernel being used?
Then I might try to upgrade the kernel to a newer version
If that doesn’t work I might have to stick with Solas Budgie, which will be a bit of a pain as I try to keep all devices the same.
Looking forward to some good advice!
