This may be a little off topic, but help would be appreciated.
I have a netbook running Ubuntu and Windows 10. It is fairly new. I
have replaced the HD with 500G SSD drive and increased the RAM from 4 to 8G.
It "hangs" (i.e. no response from touch screen, keyboard or external
mouse) in both Windows 10 and Ubuntu (Ubuntu seems to be a bit worse).
I have now booted into Ubuntu on an external USB thumb drive, and it has
not hung for many hours.
Thus, I suspect there might be something wrong with the SSD drive. Any
idea how I can verify this? It would be under warranty if it is faulty,
but how do I prove it to the manufacturer?
Could it be something else?
I guess the next thing I can do is put the original HD back into it (or
try to boot from that externally).
