I've been trying different distros on my laptop because I'd really like to switch to Linux but I can't seem to make it work.
I installed Fedora and elementary OS (which worked before) on my laptop and after a whole day of installing both of them crash randomly. elementary OS crashed during installation few times and the only thing I saw was a block of text from where I only understood that the process is
install.py and it said Bad RIP value.
Once I managed to install elementary OS I tried updating it and then it crashed again, this time the process was
dpkg and again, Bad RIP value.
The laptop is Acer Aspire 5741G (latest BIOS and VGA BIOS) with i5 430M, 3GB of DDR3 and HD5470 512MB.
