Hi, are you using 32 or 64 bit Ubuntu?

When getting random crashes, the first easy tests is to do a memory test just to make sure it's not a memory problem - there is memtest86 on the CD menu - I recommend booting this and trying it out first.

Did Already mem test and also check disk no errors found but still the problem persists the pc is running under 32 bit atm

Does the system unfreeze? if so, run:

dmesg | tail -n 20

It will hopefully give clues

nop it dosent unfreeze i've been waiting more than 1 hour to unfreeze still no sing

Does ALT+K+PrintScreen make the X server reset and unfreeze the system?

Do you have another machine? - if so, can you use it with the ping command to send packets to the frozen machine when it does a freeze - if you can ping it then it suggests the lock up is a GPU hang. If not, are the keyboard LEDs flashing on/off. If they flash, it indicates a fatal kernel panic.

Can you help with this problem?
