Persistent crashing on lucid

Hello everyone... I am having persistent crashes on my Ubuntu system... Running Lucid and having sound issues and random crashes when playing SC2...

Eventually had an initramfs error... which magically cured itself on a reboot... eveything seemed fine for an hour then another crash...

I have attached a photo of the screen that is on at the moment. I keeps trying to do the last command and refreshes every minute...

If anyone can point me in a direction it would be much appreciated

Inspect the /var/log/messages file and /var/log/syslog for clues.

Perhaps use control-alt-F1, etc to start another window and watch the messages will SC2.. is playing.
