If in doubt, run MemCheck86. Try it wit Slax. That's fairly failsafe.
The emergency keys are not Ctrl-Del but Alt-Ctrl-Del and Alt-Ctrl-Bkspace.
The emergency exit to try is:
Press and KEEP DEPRESSED Alt-Ctrl-PrtScreen
Press and release 'S'
Press and release 'U'
Press and release 'B'
thank you: Ctrl-Alt-Del etc. do not work; Alt-Ctrl-PrtScreen SUB
also does not.
The pc is frozen. I suspect it goes into hibernation and remains there.
Unusable. The memory is 8 Gb RAM, as "top" recognizes. The OS is a 64 bit ubuntu 9.10 OS.
Can you see what is this problem? (is it possible that the xorg.conf files are incorrect: I cannot locate them as the last time (pre-ubuntu times) I looked at them they were called something like XF86Config.
