    I had that once. The graphics card was overheating.
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    it can be due to a driver conflict or because you upgraded your kernel and need to reinstall the driver? Need more information. What version of ubuntu are you using? What is the graphics card be used and what driver are you using?

    to find out graphics card there are several ways, one is to run this command within a terminal session
    Code:
    lspci
    to find out what graphics driver you can try this command
    Code:
    cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | grep Driver
    also, you can copy and paste the entire contents of this file /var/log/Xorg.0.log at pastebin and then paste the link here (forums don't like it when you paste a ton of code directly so that's what pastebin is for)

    They are running 10.04 LTS.

    lspci output:
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82945G/GZ Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)
    00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation 82945G/GZ Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)

    shop@shop-computer:~$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | grep Driver
    cat: /etc/X11/xorg.conf: No such file or directory

    shop@shop-computer:/etc/X11$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.failsafe | grep Driver
    Returns Driver "fbdev"
