Xorg restarts frequently at random times

So this is my first post on these forums… I’ve tried finding an appropriate section for this but I can’t seem to find any linux section on here so I’ve defaulted to the Cuda on Linux section in hopes that someone else has seen this error here.

ubuntu 64bit 9.04 Jaunty
ubuntu 64bit 9.10 Karmic

Nvidia hardware:
Nvidia nvs 140m

General Hardware:
IBM T61 Thinkpad
2gb mem
160gig HD

Nvidia Software:
180.xx linux drivers
185.xx linux drivers
190.42 linux drivers

The Problem:
During normal use Xorg randomly restarts and spits the following into the GDM log files…

0: /usr/bin/X(xorg_backtrace+0x26) [0x4f00c6]

This is horrible as I usually have multiple documents open which may or may-not be fully saved. I have a feeling this is a Nvidia driver error but I don’t have the know-how to test for it. If anyone needs any other data about my system please let me know.

I don’t know about your problem, but I think this is the best forum for it: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/forumdispl…&forumid=14

Or ubuntus own forum.

Good luck
