Hi! Welcome to Ask Fedora! Can you please edit your question and add more information to help us better debug the issue - First, have you updated your system? Second - where exactly does it freeze? Third - Can you switch to a virtual terminal using ctrl + alt+ f2/3. If you can, can you login and check the last few lines of various log files and provide them to us?

You certainly need to add more information regarding your system. These freezing issues are often caused by graphics problem. You may want to look into it.

Try these things:

  • Switch to Xrender rendering instead of OpenGL
  • Turn off desktop effects
  • Switch to a lighter DM
  • Install the driver for the GPU (Nvidia, ATI, etc.)
