Default System crashes at random intervals.

Hey, I've been using Ubuntu for some time now, (Since Gutsy) and I'm
currently running 8.04.2, and I used to run it under a dual-boot with
windows XP, but after my hard drive failed, I nuked it and Put Ubuntu on
it as my only OS. One problem I have had, and am still having, is that
it freezes at random intervals, mostly when the mouse is used. (Never
whilst typing though). What happens is that the mouse and keyboard don't
respond, the sound sticks, and there is no activity on the screen. It
just hangs there. I read on the Ubuntu forums that it is usually a
problem with X, so I followed this [1] guide, but to no avail, it still
occurs. Please find attached a copy of the output from
'lshw -short',
'etc/X11/xorg.conf', and
'top'

Any help would be greatly appreciated, as it's a real problem now, not
just for me, but for all users of this computer. It never happened in
windows;

Thanks in advance,
Liam Wilson

Could this be related to your other post regarding the numbers
keypad/accessibility?
