Recently, Ubuntu 8.10 was installed on the computer that I use, and since then it pretty much freezes every chance it gets. Pidgin doesn't work anymore for me (the Pidgin window just turns black when I use it; any help on that would be appreciated), so I use Emesene, and Ubuntu occasionally crashes while using that. The computer sometimes freezes while I hover over hyperlinks. The odd thing about all these times, though, is that the cursor of the mouse can still be moved, but when I try clicking on something, it doesn't activate what I click on. Hopefully the above can be understood clearly enough, and any help would be greatly appreciated.
