I think that you're refering to Apport

Apport is an Error Reporting Service provided by Ubuntu to intercept and analyse crashes and bugs as and when they occur. Crashes and Bugs may sound like bad things, but actually most operating systems will have several a day, and it doesn't mean your computer is broken, nor does it necessarily stop working. As such, Apport can usually be safely disabled, as it doesn't fix anything, it just tells developers that something went wrong.

All the commands below require that you open Terminal to run the commands. To open Terminal, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

You can stop Apport for the running session with:

sudo service apport stop

To disable, you have to edit the apport file, and Change the line that says enabled=1 to enabled=0

sudo gedit /etc/default/apport

Or you can remove Apport:

sudo apt-get purge apport

Note: I personally don't recommend that you disable it.

I been trying to find the error but the only thing wrong with it is just a flashing screen in the display. – Marth Neo May 28 '13 at 6:37
You can try looking in the log file ` /var/log/apport.log` – Mitch May 28 '13 at 6:54
