    Re: how to diagnose and deal with random crashes?

    In my case the culprit proved to be compiz after all. After my previous message I went back to unity, disabled windows previews and animations and updated my nvidia drivers.
    After a few days without incident, I re-enabled animations and 10 minutes ago, windows previews.
    Sure enough a few seconds later, after playing around with firing up applications and hovering over their launcher icons my system froze completely, so in my case it was this one compiz plugin.

    With all those programs crashing, if you can't get a crash report, I would look for something in common. First, I suggest that you do a memory test. There's a test on the installation CD. Second, I would uninstall any proprietary drivers.
