Question Freshly Installed Ubuntu 9.10 freezing up

Hello. I am running a dual boot with Windows XP and Ubuntu 9.10. I have a Gateway Computer with a 2 GHz processor and 1.25 GB of RAM and a 40GB hard drive. My video driver is an integrated Intel variety.

I went to Salimane Adjao Moustapha's web site:

and copied and pasted all of his post-installation commands into my terminal to run them. Not sure if this guy knows what he is doing or not. He seems very intelligent and has a lot of good feedback on the site. Basically he seems to be upgrading/updating everything and adding apps for Video, Music, Utilities, Antivirus/Firewall, Open Office, GIMP etc...

Somehow my screen freezes up on a regular basis. I can't mouse click on anything and CTRL+ALT+F2 doesn't bring up an instance of my terminal so I can't kill the offending process. It also freezes up sometimes when I first power it up. In any event, my only recourse is to pull the plug on my computer and reboot.

Any suggestions? I've tried re-installing 3 times already and the problem remains.

Don't know, that could take quite a bit of troubleshooting. I had a similar problem with the previous release and it turned out the problem was one of the RAM settings in BIOS.
