Re: Ubuntu 10.04 crashes. (Programs,applications stop automatically)
What you describe sounds like an hardware failure.
Can you run a live CD? If so, do a memtest to see if your ram is corrupted.
Also, why are you installing a 32 bit distro on a 64 bit processor? It takes away the advantage of having 64 bit (someone may disagree, but they are a minority )
PS: the screen resolution issue was probably caused by GPU drivers. Post the maker and model of you GPU, I can probably help with that
