    when something comes badly, the first thing you may think of is glancing to the logs: xorg.0.log inside /home, and /var/log/*
    you should find some usefull warnings/errors to work with

    Check your hard disk light. If it is on continuously, then perhaps you have run out of RAM and you are now using swap. Open a terminal (when you can--be patient):

    Code:
    free
    Don't shut down the computer, but let it finish whatever it is doing.
