    ubuntu freeze

    hi all,
    i am using ubuntu hardy(8.04) on dell d520. it was working fine, but from few days back it has started freezing suddenly.there is no sound...nothing works... most of the time it is when i play amarok or vlc, and even when many tabs opened in firefox....
    i tried ctrl+alt+backspace or rather all combinations but nothing work that time. it only resume when i restart the laptop.
    my system has:
    -> dual OS ubuntu 8.04 and windows XP
    -> 1 gb ram and 60 gb hard disk

    this problem is really freaking me out..
    can someone get me out of this....

    Re: ubuntu freeze

    I got this problem too. When i start Pidgin, or sometimes when i'm just in firefox, ubuntu freezes. I can move the cursor, but nothing else. I need to restart my PC(it's a desktop, not laptop). I also have Dual Boot, WIn XP and Ubunt. I think the problem appeared when i installed the latest updates. Can someone help ?

    It could be a resource issue, what are the results of this command:
    Code:
    top
    Google Ventures / Prowl

    I have a (very) similar problem, and when I run
    Code:
    top
    , I get a list of all processess, data about the memory usage, cpu usage, and more. Is there something you'd need to know mor precisely?
