I have a similar freezing problem as described by Arthur Skirvin, though my hardware configuration is different and freezing symptoms vary slightly. Hence my post here on meta. I do not frequently participate in the Super User community and wanted to determine how you handle duplicate issues that feature differing hardware.
While my symptoms are the same the cause could be wildly different-- so is an additional post warranted? Would such a post be closed as an exact duplicate? Is there even a "policy" or do you guys go more on what feels right.
Mostly I am just curios as to how the community works, but it would be helpful to have some guidance if I should be creating a new question. For now I've added a bounty to Arthur's question in the hopes that it will garnish additional answers which might fix my problem.
