    Hello!

    In order for folks to have some idea how to approach this issue, it might be helpful to get a snapshot of the screen and to give a the specifications of your machine.

    Thanks!

    Does the system have a make and model?
    Do you have the latest BIOS?
    Is Ubuntu fully updated?

    I'm really not sure what it happening, some more information would be helpful, but it sort of sounds like a problem I had where the screen would suddenly display a very distorted pattern and lock up the computer. There was then no way to make a screen shot except taking a picture of it. If I'm right in my case it was the video driver and installing a different one eventually solved the problem.
