I am facing a huge problem with my ubuntu 10.10 on my 1 year old Dell inspiron laptop. My laptop crashed repeatedly yesterday when browsing. It used to carsh once in a while when watching videos. But yesterday it was worse. If I force shutdown and start it again after the carsh, again ubuntu crashes when loading the desktop itself. This happened for 3 to 4 times. I got frustated and switched to Windows 7 and I didn't face any issue in Windows 7.
It could be laptop heat issue, but why is that Windows 7 works fine but Ubuntu carshes if the laptop is hot. Or is it becauase of some other issue?
I could not take any logs because, i lose control over keyboard and monitor. Only a loud raining sound alone comes during the crashes.
It seems i am not lucky enough to use Ubuntu. Someone please help
