How many?

Can you switch to a ttyv when it's frozen (pressing ctrl+alt+f1)?

Yes. but Nothing happens, when i try to install PcBSD the same problem. i did a bios update after reading this information about Nvidia GPUs but the problem still. i dont know if i need to reinstall nvidia driver.

the information in Pcdoctor say :

If you own one of the following Dell notebooks then you need to read on:
Inspiron 1420
Latitude D630
Latitude D630c
Dell Precision M2300
Vostro Notebook 1310
Vostro Notebook 1400
Vostro Notebook 1510
Vostro Notebook 1710
XPS M1330
XPS M1530

In response to a potential issue with some of NVIDIA's GPUs (Graphics Processing Units) used in the above notebooks (more info on this issue here, here and here) Dell has released a BIOS update that modifies the fan profile to help keep the GPU cooler and prevent future failures.

Links to BIOS update downloads can be found here.
