Thank you for the suggestion. I have tried this, but the computer is
actually not working anymore. For instance, I was in the process of a
pacman update, but the update terminated. I can tell because there was no
more hard drive activity, and the same package that was being downloaded
when the computer froze needed to be downloaded again.
