So I've never had any problems with ubuntu for any other release.
However, since my upgrade to 8.10 my computer freezes quite frequently.
It varies what I'm doing when it freezes. Occasionally I'll be just typing out an email with just pidgin and ktorrent open in the background.

Most of the time when it does 'freeze' it's more of a hang. I can't do anything for anywhere between 10seconds and a few mins then everything comes back on. Occasionally it never comes back and I have to shut it down by holding the power button.
Essentially it's getting worse and becoming unusable. Is anyone else having this problem?

Any help or advice is appreciated.

I also had problems with 8.10 that I could not resolve. Both my Laptop and Desktop ran 8.04 faultlessly. So, I reinstalled 8.04 and all has been fine since.
