lucid random hangups

Acer veriton 5000 pentium4 1.7mhz 2Gb ram. double booted with win2k
I had no trouble upgrading from Ubuntu 8.04 to 9.04. For some reason 9.04 would not upgrade to 9.10 so I installed from disc, with minor hics. Now works well but randomly hangs with no warning and I have to switch-off and restart to continue. Very annoying. I do not get any error alert it just hangs and when rebooted carries on quite unperturbed. How do I fix?? REcently installed lucid works well but same random hangups . How FIX???

First logical place would be to use your terminal and enter
to try and identify any startup problems or /var/log/faillog for any concurrent diffs.
