Unhappy Debian crashes and freezes periodically on ACER ASPIRE 4736Z

I have been using debian for about a month now. At first the freezing problem was rare but now it is very periodic. It often happens when I am browsing the web. I used to use firefox and I thought that system freezes because of some memory leaks, maybe firefox takes up too much RAM and hence even virtual console is slow. I had no way to check this hypothesis because even the terminal does not open when the system freezes. Then today I downloaded chrome thinking that it might handle my limited RAM (1GB) well but it freezes even faster, almost after about 30 minutes of browsing. Now I have really limited knowledge of how the kernel handles memory or allocates the RAM so please inform me about what I should do. I am really clueless and have used all of my googling skills to no avail.
Thank you

After launching the chrome from terminal I get the following message:
'ATTENTION: default value of option force_s3tc_enable overridden by environment.
[4221:4221:1117/] Not implemented reached in void views: Desktop WindowTreeHostX11::MapWindow(ui::WindowShowState)
getrlimit(RLIMIT_NOFILE) failed'
Even after this chrome starts and works normally. Now I would think this error has something to do with freezing but then again firefox launches itself quite normally from the terminal.
