    Random Lockups of 13.10

    I keep experiencing random lockups on my Toshiba Notebook running 13.10 Development Release, Unity completely freezes even though the Num Lock key and Caps Lock Key still responds there is no way to do anything without doing a hard re-boot.

    Is this a bug in 13.10 or is it a sign that my Notebook is slowly dying?

    I've had the Notebook since November or December of 2010 and the Disks App reports that the HDD has got one bad sector and the only upgrade I've done other than Install Ubuntu to replace Windows is add a 2nd 2GB Stick of RAM.

    Fixed it, it turned out that there was a case screw from the HDD shield floating around inside the case, once shaken out everything works fine.
