I'm running with 1gb of swap, i'll try 2gb this time.
I believe theres no problem with my disk, cause I did the check
and i think there was one bad sector marked by chkdsk.
Though my hdd works differently on linux and windows, maybe
it's the pagefile, maybe it's not.
Even though, what are pros and cons of arch comparing to debian sid?
Arch is much more flexible, IMO. It gives you much greater control of packages and configuration.

It really comes off as something iffy with the hardware setup, but I could be wrong, I could be overestimating that setup, but I doubt it.
