I've been having a problem since I installed Natty. Every couple of days, when performing mundane tasks like opening a new browser window or starting a program, the screen will suddenly go blank and show a text module. (Command prompt/terminal? Newbie alert.)
When this happens, I have to do a hard reboot, which is obviously not good when I'm working on things, and I can't even move the mouse.
I'm only a rookie when it comes to the inner workings of computers, and am still a relatively new user of Ubuntu, so I'm not entirely sure what it was saying, and I couldn't get a good picture of the computer screen, so I copied down a few of the lines that seemed to possibly be indicative of the problem:
Kernal panic - not syncing: fatal exception in interrupt
Panic occurred, switching back to text console
BUG: scheduling while atomic: chrome/1606/0x00000100
Don't know how common this is or if it's a glitch solely in my system, but any help with explaining it / telling how to resolve the problem, if possible, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
