View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 12.04.1(64bit) Freezes

November 3rd, 2012, 09:06 AM
I am having an issue with Ubuntu 12.04.1(64/32 bit). Some peoples said it maybe problem of x-manager or other applications related UNITY or Gnome so i removed most of them such as Compize and installed KDE + . Let me explain the issue,

What i use most of time :
1. Vmware Workstation.
2. Firefox.
3. Konqueror.
4. Konsole.

But Ubuntu is getting freezes when my Laptop is turn on for more than 12-24 hours. First it happened on 32 bit. So I installed 64 bit but again freeze after 12-24 hours. Some peoples recommended to install Newest kernel So i installed Kernel 3.4(the deb package from Ubuntu Kernel) and tested again , But The UBUNTU still same. I did not able to take any Screenshot myself but some posted the same issue(Perhaps) , The screen Shot: http://csweb.ucc.ie/~dongen/Ubuntu/Example.png (http://csweb.ucc.ie/%7Edongen/Ubuntu/Example.png) , And the Post: http://askubuntu.com/questions/203465/ubuntu-12-04-12-10-keeps-on-freezing

I can't click on K menu, All applications gets ugly.

The Freezes happen suddenly if it is running for more than 12-24 hours and 4 applications above. there is no any weird logs on Kernel or syslog. I don't know where the bug/issue is. But i tried my best to make a little stable :
1. Installed other kwine with KDE GDE.
2. Installed Kernel 3.4 .

I really need to work for long time, sometime my Laptop should be idle for week even month since it will do some automated things for me. I also installed the bumblebee but i did not test after installing this software.

My Hardware Information:

I am using DELL XPS L502x. Processor core i7 2.20, Ram is 8GB, It is Optimus. dmesg: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1328537/ and lspci: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1328540/ & lspci -vvnn: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1328693/

I don't know what i should do now since i love Ubuntu. I am confused . Is there any way to solve this or won't fix?

Thanks everybody!

I don't understand a lot of what the original poster said, but my system suffers freezes more regularly than that.

Copied from http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...7#post12378267

OS: 12.10 32 bit
Laptop: Asus B53J
Processor: Intel I5
Graphics card: ATK, I think.

System freezes every time I use it.


- Sometimes I can move the mouse, sometimes I can't.
- It happens randomly, even while browsing the internet.
- It can be a few hours after I start it up, or sooner.
- It happens invariably if I try to load music to a music player through Rhythm Box
