Bug Description

Ok so this is what happens.

I can login to my Ubuntu desktop just fine etc but when I am watching a movie about 3 min into the movie all the sudden either a couple of things happen. My movie x's out and just crashes (I think?) or all the sudden X restarts (I think?) and I am back to my login page. I have no idea why this happens and I can repeat the bug every time I watch a movie in flash or just on my desktop from an .avi etc.

It is not a problem with my Graphics card because it would happen with my on board chip Intel graphics and so I purchase a new Nvidia 6200 card that works great.

It's not a problem with my Ram I have tested my 1gb of ram many times and it seems just fine.

Its not a problem with my CPU heating up because I have touched the heat sink while running and never seems to hot, actually seems quit cool. Also, it's a 3.4ghz Hypertheaded Intel processor.

The only two things I can image is my hard drive is some how faulty. I am using SATA cables instead of IDE. Not sure if this is effecting this. Could it effect it? The other thing, which I really think it is, is the firmware or the drivers that connect Ubuntu to my motherboard don't work properly. I am using an MSI motherboard :

MSI
VIA P4M800CE + VT8237R Plus Chipset Based
PM8M3-V

Thanks you for all your help, and hope this helps out. If you need me to do some testing, just email me.

As commented by jtholmes attach the following information so that we can help you better
~/.xsession-errors
/var/log/Xorg.0.log
Also tell us whether you are using the default drivers or the restricted ones? If you are using the latter then have you tried disabling them and reproducing the error?
kindly attach your kernel version too by using the command uname -a in the terminal and pasting the output here.

Sorry for not replying. I not longer have this system to test it one.
I apologize if this has upset anyone. I let this email thread slip :).
Will try to keep more up to day in the future. Thank you so much for
