http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi all, I am using Ubuntu 9.10 and I am getting lock ups after logging in usually within a minute at the desktop. Mousing around through the menus is enough to make it lock up. The system is totally frozen and I can't do anything but hard reboot. It seems to be video related, how might I troubleshoot the cause? This system is a Compaq Presario with the Intel GMA 950 video chipset integrated on the motherboard and I just used the auto-detected video settings per the Ubuntu setup program. Is there a crash log or anything else that I can post to help narrow the problem? Thanks! Adam (Hardware)
