Are you using Compiz? I have locked up X a few times while the system
was under some sort of load. I am also running Unbuntu 7.10 on an AMD
cpu with Nvidia chipset. However I am using an ATI video card. I have
not had any issues with Ubuntu 7.10 on a Intel machine with the same
ATI video card.

I would recommend that you disable X (sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop) and
see if the problem persists.
