    Are you sure the computer actually hangs there? Something might be wrong with the graphics drivers since you can see the text mode. When you think the computer has hung up, try pushing Ctrl + Alt + F1 and see if it changes to a text terminal. If so, you'll probably need to install new graphics drivers using the command line. I installed Vector Linux on an old HP I had sitting around gathering dust and I had the same problem, but I downloaded the new drivers, put them on a USB drive and installed them with the command line and since then I haven't had any problems with it.
