Hey guys,

I installed Ubuntu a few days ago, and it works fine, but every now and then (as in, it happened 3 times since I installed it) the OS just gets totally unresponsive out of nowhere. This last time, for instance, I was working on Eclipse and did a search on Chrome, and suddenly nothing worked anymore. It doesn't totally freeze up, I can see the mouse moving a little bit (and much later than the actual mouse movement), but I can't even Ctrl-Alt-F1 to jump to a terminal. One of the previous times this happened I did manage to get to a terminal, and "top" didn't show any crazy memory/CPU hogging processes, everything seemed normal, but it was super slow and I was forced to reboot.

I had a look at the syslog right after I rebooted and I can see this line showing up many many times:

Mar 12 13:38:09 dgomes kernel: [15861.202889] m9x: CreateSurface Failed !m_poBrdgDirectRequester->RequestSurfaceCreation() !!

By "many times" I really mean A LOT: the file had 1,195,993 lines, from which 1,194,918 were that error...

I'm running Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS and this is my cpuinfo:
