Ubuntu 13.10 – Scrambled Screen Crash

I have been experiencing multiple crashes a day (some times more than 3 per hour) in Ubuntu since upgrading to 13.10 that results in a scrambled screen being shown. To recover I have to hard reset my laptop (Lenovo B590). I thought it was screen driver issues but could not get it resolved, so out of desperation I switched to Gnome3 and in 48 Hours I have had only one crash.

I have no intrest getting involved in the Unity vs The World debate, I just posted this here in the so that it might save some other poor Ubuntu user some frustration.

    After running Ubuntu updates today gnome3 is no longer a safe haven against these crashes. I am now experiencing multiple crashes per hour in gnome3 as well.

    Well I gave up and got a Lenovo G500 and have no more issues.
