ok, so if i understand correctly you installed the nvidia driver while
running in failsafe, then you booted again (not in failsafe) and
everything looked fine until you tried to contact these forums, which is
when the system ‘froze’ and you used the power button to shutdown–is
and, then when the machine was next booted (after the above power down)
then you were having ‘freeze’ problems no matter what screen you were
well, it could be that your desktop indexing stuff working in the
background is just hogging all the resources…and, maybe if you were
to just boot up and walk away for half an hour all that background stuff
would be finished and all your ‘freezes’ would be over…maybe.
do, that (just it sit a while) and then open a terminal and run top in
in, on the desktop where you can see it…open a browser and size it so
you can still see top, and try again to make a post (into this
thread)…if you get a freeze then just sit on your hands and watch
top…watch what jumps to the top (of top) and sucks up all the CPU
and/or RAM…watch it for several minutes…at least five…does the
CPU/RAM usage fall eventually, or just stay stuck…and, is everything
else frozen (can you move the mouse? move mouse but not click on
anything? is the hard drive light blinking…or steady, or off…do the
keyboard numlock or capslock light blink?)
while ‘frozen’ what happens if you Ctrl+Alt+F1? does it switch to a full
screen terminal? can you log in as yourself, run top and see the same
application stuck at the top of top? what is it?
