I have Acer Aspire E5 laptop . From Ubuntu I shifted to fedora 23 . Thene sometimes I faced the problems of freezing . Recently I upgraded to fedora 24 . After some days same problem is arising in much more severe form . After using 20 to 30 minutes hardly system goes to freeze . Keyboard is not working nor touchpad .

Now my question is , Is it hardware problem of my laptop ? Or some software issue caused by improper installing . Please help me . I am in serious condition .

the color should be red and during the freeze , so before reboot you maybe see some line/warning/error repeated.

if you want to share your log , use

Is it an Intel BayTrail processor? I had similar issues with one of my tablets with Fedora on it. I've managed to solve it (after countless hours) with the following kernel parameters: intel_idle.max_cstate=0 clocksource=tsc

Try and see if it helps.
