Does it happen for all users?

this is a single user system.

System unstable. Blank Screen. Mouse & Keyboard Inoperative.

If user attempts to activate System > Preferences > Screensaver. this system will instantly freeze...

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (lucid).

Machine: Compaq Presario

Onboard Video: Intel 845

willing to try positive solution to resolve the bug.

Reinstall Ubuntu 10.04. lucid Desktop.
without UPDATES.
Stabilized System.
all bugs went away...

I did not Update the system at all.
First Installation Ubuntu 10.
System > Administration > Update Manager. Applied Updates. System became
unstable.

Update Package(s) issue...

System > Preferences > Screen Saver. Only intensified Blank Screen > no
mouse >
No Keyboard response. Update Package or Packages Caused this Scenario.

So far so good.

Wow. its still having issue. I did not break It.

I suspect more than one problem or Event Conflict.

1).ScreenSaver is one of the issue. its broke!
2).Firefox is another. I think that maybe due to Adobe. still broke!
3).Desktop will crash once in awhile also. broke!

Patching Kernel. was helpful, for a few hour...
Cpugroup, did not help either. only made /var/log/btmp, lack permissions. can't get that stable.

gconf-editor, /apps - gnome-screensaver. Is their light at the end of the tunnel??

Tony Rome (wilson3360) said : #7

btw. I did not break it.

Clicking and drag, Mouse can also cause the system freeze.

a bit curious. How stable is 10.10?

signed: send me and angel :)

Screensaver Ubuntu 10.04.

How do I remove the Screensaver, Module or Programs altogether?
:) or How do I remove The Screensaver Completely from the files system?

Signed: Some fun huh Bambi :)
