I suggest for everyone to call dell and complain about this issue and see if they can resolve it.
I will be calling tomorrow.
I think I would look elsewhere for the problem; I have a 1010 running XP and it has never frozen up EVER. I even had it get wiped out by a bad Linux duel boot install. I reinstalled XP from the CD's and its running fine again; like it had never been wiped out.
Fact is it faster than ever. The only real problem I have ever had with the 1010 is the GMA 500 chip set. And that's that you have to be real selective in the Linux distro's you install on it. XP; Win 7 runs fine. But only Ubuntu (8.04,9.04,9.10,10.04,10.10); Jolicloud,and Mandriva (to a degree) run well on the 1010. And believe you me I have tried them all. fdalbor
