- What should I do when Ubuntu freezes? 40 answers
For the last 3-4 months I have been experiencing random system crashes: the screen just hangs and nothing can move. Also I can't ssh into my box.
On some days it doesn't happen at all, and on others it can happen up to 3-4 times. Sometimes It'll hang, I'll immediately restart my machine, and then it'll crash again as soon as the desktop appears.
I have a very strong feeling that it's the Google Chrome browser that is somehow causing the crash, as Chrome is usually running when it happens.
Is there anything I can do to try and diagnose what the issue might be?
I also get occasional ubuntu messages telling me that something has crashed in the background.
