It can take some time to find the right triaging advice with all the
links in there, but I always turn to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BugSquad/
when I want to find some tips on bug triage.

There is a page on Bug Triage, and a Knowledge Base page. Normally for
freezes and lockups that page points you to a page on Kernel triage & X

But of course, it could also be hardware. You could try running another
distro/release on a live CD or installed to a spare hard disk to try and
eliminate a software bug.

Keep us up to date. Someone else with more experience might have time to
help out when you report back.
