Installed ubuntu 14.04 and the system freezes at least once a day at what seems to be random times.

By Freezing I mean the mouse keyboard and screen won't react at all. This will happen no matter if the system is being , or it is idle with lockscreen on.

I have been having to hold the power button to my dektop (powerwash) in order to restart every time.

In my log var/logs/syslog it looks like there were processes running even after the screen froze. Considering what tasks were completed I believe the system froze last somewhere between 11 and 12. 12:50 is when I restarted the desktop.

If anyone can see the problem in my syslog or tell me where else to look it would be a great help. I don't even know where to begin.

  • /var/logs/syslog might not be the proper log. Vishnu's link lists useful instructions. You also don't know whether your mouse and keyboard freeze, maybe your screen stop refresh but everything else is fine. – Tianren Liu Mar 8 '16 at 22:51

Try troubleshooting it with a little help from here.

  • Thanks, but those instructions are more than I can handle. Any noob ways to fix the error? any default software I can disable that might be causing this? – user695695 Mar 8 '16 at 18:51
  • @VishnuNK 's guide in the comment is about boot repair, which doesn't seems to be related. – Tianren Liu Mar 8 '16 at 22:43

Alt+Ctrl+F1 would lead you to a full functional command line interface, you could login, do whatever you want. And it's much more stable than the graphical part of Ubuntu. Alt+Ctrl+F7 would takes you back to the graphical interface.

Although the GUI freezes, you can still use the command line interface. This enable you better diagnose your system. You can kill problematic process. Restarting Xserver can solve the problem temporarily. In the worst case, you could safely shutdown your computer.
