    Hey guys.

    I've been experiencing some random freezing on my Acer R11 netbook. I haven't been able to find any pattern to it, it occurs sometimes after hours of use and sometimes after a couple of minutes.

    I had windows installed on this before without any issues so I don't think it's a hardware problem. I've looked for anything weird being reported in dmesg and the syslog but everything looks normal.

    I've tried a solution posted here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/761706/ubuntu-15-10-and-16-04-keep-freezing-randomly. But this has just resulted in sketchy booting. Sometimes it boots, other times it gets passed the POST but seems to freeze when trying to deal with grub.

    Any ideas?

    I had simiilar problems. I solved it like this -
    try add this to grub:
    Code (Text):
    sudo nano /etc/default/grub
    change:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
    to
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash intel_idle.max_cstate=1"

    save= <ctrl>+<o>
    exit= <cttrl>+<x>

    EDIT: sorry didn't see you had tried this way (from the llink)

    Yeah, any other ideas on where to look to fix this? I literally can't use the laptop reliably for long periods of time.

    My last suggestion would be try upgrade the kernel to 4.10 and see if it helps.
