Frozen, then dead. Can MPGuino be resurrected?

Having this recurring problem of freezing. The screen freezes and no buttons work. the only way to reset is to unplug and replug. Problem is today I unplugged and it wouldnt restart. dead screen. Even on the USB at home. Is this possibly the brownout thing being discussed here?

If so do I need to bootload it? I'm reading voltage on the board so it does not seem to be a power issue.

I'm running without alternator so perhaps I need a separate battery for it so this does not happen.


P.S. I know there is a lot to do here but perhaps we could set up a known issues page on the wiki to keep this all in one place. I'm willing to do some work on that if I knew where to start.
