Rebooted came back into kubuntu FF opened the same tabs.. boom did it again................

Forgot to say I also installed SUSE 12.03 KDE 4.10 it was like a ROCK so that is very odd Kubuntu ( which ive always used ) started acting up :(

What if your run memtest86 (from the GRUB Ubuntu boot menu) for a few hours?

On a brand new computer straight out the box? I don't know why OPEN SUSE KDE 4.10 ran perfect no flaws?

I was just thinking... I did turn something on I am not sure I should have... Something about Intel graphics enhancer or something... VMM or something... Could that be apart of the problem? I couldn't remember if it was on or off so I just flipped it to ON.... I wonder if that is what was giving me the kernel panics in Kubuntu 12.04.02

sorry it took me so long to get back......... MEMTEST ran fine.. no errors

I have been using OpenSUSE 12.3 KDE 4.10 and its been up for over 6 days but for some reason having Firefox open and a youtube vid and switching tabs thats when everything goes to pot...

I liked Kubuntu better alot easier than opensuse... I am finding OS a bit harder but asking around I am slowly finding my way round it...

I dont understand why OS works fine but KUbuntu kept having kernel panics :(
