So as soon as I log in, a few seconds later Ubuntu freezes. I booted with a live CD and checked var/crash/ and found out the following report:

Before too I used to get the same error but at random, not necessarily after login. After googling I found out that it could be a graphics driver issue, so I replaced the existing default driver with closed source Nvidia driver, but the problem persists.

I freshly installed Ubuntu and upgraded. And after using it for a day or so this problem comes up again.

I don't think it's a hardware issue as the machine works fine when booted with a Live CD, or on Windows.

Alt + PrtSc + REISUB doesn't work either.
