Can upgrade solve my problems?

Recommended Posts



I have now installed OSX 10.9 Mavericks on my pc. It works great till it totally freezes. I don't know how to fix it. The only thing i can do is move the mouse but nothing reacts to it. To solve this i need to reboot the system and everything works again. Sometimes for just halve a minute, sometimes for half an hour but it will freeze again.


The only thing i need OSX for is to use XCode. 


Can my problem being solved by upgrading to OSX Yosemite? Or is it just hardware that conflicts with OSX? Now i can use it (as long as it won't freeze, but will this improve with an update or could it also be much worse then?)

- CPU ( Intel Core i5 750 2,667GHz)

I had the same sort of problem on my AMD FX 8350 it would work for a few minutes maybe an hour and randomly freeze.

what fixed it for me was. i updated the bootloader and added the flags in the config file npci=0x2000.
