Re: My laptop keeps crashing

Have you tried disabling APM? This kills me every time on my GW Solo 2100. I
have to disable it during booting otherwise the machine will crash. You may be
able to compile support into the kernel which would be the preferable solution.
This doesn't work for me because apparently the BIOS implementation does
something it isn't supposed to.
