I'm getting random freezing issues on my PC running 12.04 (Core i5 3450 w/ integrated graphics) and haven't been able to pinpoint the exact cause of the problem. However I have been getting "Sorry, Ubuntu 12.04 has experienced an internal error" messages regarding "Xorg".

Here's a screenshot of the error window: http://i.imgur.com/5nh5B.png

This is on a clean install of Ubuntu as well. One thing I noticed is these issues start happening the moment I connect my PC to the Internet and attempt to install updates which always results in an error.

Here's a screenshot of the update manager error: http://i.imgur.com/2fGk4.png

Any ideas on what could be causing this issue? Thanks for any help.

"random freeze" - could be anything, you need to follow the freeze troubleshooting guide in order to see what error number your GPU is getting.

"error window" - that actually shows a crash not a freeze. For crashes you need the backtrace. unfortunately you didn't expand it in your dialog screenshot so it's anyone's guess what's wrong.

"update manager error" - it looks to me like your network connection has failed. mx.archive.ubuntu.com responds fine for me.

Is there a way for me to save the error report and post it here? Also this PC has a stable network connection but for some reason always gets stuck on those Release.gpg files. The rest appear to download fine. I even tried downloading them via terminal and got the same error. –  BukToof Jun 26 '12 at 20:14
    
There is, but this isn't the place to post it. There's a plethora of troubleshooting documents on how to solve X crash and GPU freeze issues. –  Bryce Jun 26 '12 at 20:26
