I am a senior freelance software developer specialized in hardware near, industrial automation and desktop development.

I am a Linux user since the late nineties - have seen it grow and started giving back about 2006. Since May 2012, I don't have to do Windows to earn a living.

Best idea is to reduce the number of tabs, add the ad- flash- or script-blocker extensions to firefox, add exception rules for your work pages and experiment, perhaps even with other browsers.

I see the same on a Core 2 Duo from 2007 with an even older AMD 4350 passive card. The culprit is always flash content on a web page, even when nothing goes on. Closing all browser windows helps.

Probably the reason why your Windows died on you is that your drive is actually dead. Installing Ubuntu on top of a dead drive will not magically resurrect it.
