I have recently installed Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit on a Dell 3520 Inspiron. A window pops up quite frequently telling me a system program problem has been detected. Sometimes the pc hangs and the only way out is a hard power off.

I would like to give more info but not sure what to look for. Can someone tell me what log file to look at and what to search for so I can post some more information?

I've done all my updates and the problem persists.

Hope someone can help.

Thanks.

Since updated to 13.04 and window keeps popping up. Is there anyway I can stop the notification of system program problem? It's very annoying.

Thanks,

instead of hard power off, try this left-ctrl+altgr+printscreen+r left-ctrl+altgr+printscreen+e left-ctrl+altgr+printscreen+i left-ctrl+altgr+printscreen+s left-ctrl+altgr+printscreen+u left-ctrl+altgr+printscreen+b this should reboot your computer if it has a hang This page looks helpful:askubuntu.com/questions/11002/… –  j0h May 2 '13 at 11:39
