You should run memtest, just to rule out the memory problem.

With Respect to all the suggestion, I would request you to off the acpi and check. If it works the we can work in that context to find why acpi is giving this kind of problem.

It may not work in your case but there is no harm to give it a chance.

Actually As per my knowledge acpi creates this problem because of some wrong input from bios so I guess resting the bios will also solve the issue but before doing that you need to check whether it's working f9 after getting the acpi down or not.

Hey Hi guruprasad,

My I know the state of your system?? Does the problem persist or your have solved the issue???

I am asking this because the info will also be very helpful in my experiment.

previously i mentioned about capacitor bulge in motherboard. So now mother board is replaced, I think problem is now solved because yesterday system worked fine for whole day. But still I don't understand, if it is motherboard problem why only Linux giving me problem.

Oky, Now you have replaced your motherboard, Right????
In That case you have got a new bios set up and that has solved the problem not the motherboard. I still think the problem could have been solved only by making the acpi off.

Any ways good luck..

I'm pretty sure it was that capacitor. They are essential for dampening the noise created by various components and keeping them from interfering with each other.

What I would have did would be grab the soldering iron and replace that capacitor, or buy a new mobo.

Well, something will work less well than it did. This capacitor is probably on a power supply and that particular voltage rail will no longer be able to operate within specifications as the current used increases.

That is a problem, unless you have a plan to repair it, the board is probably not long for this world, and it may be the root-cause of this problem (although, towards the end of the life of a piece of hardware, they often get several problems).

No. If you had actually tried memtest, you would see all of the different patterns that it uses and you can very easily have a failure on one pattern and not others. Unless your operating systems access the memory in the same patterns (...and broadly you know that they don't, otherwise they'd be the same operating systems...) and at the same time intervals, it is clear that you can have failures in one and not the other.

And 'boot' proves even less; in boot you use much less than the total memory, so you can have areas of memory completely failing and still boot.

Having said that, the suggestion of testing memory is largely because it is the easiest test to do; it may not be the memory chips themselves, but memory, cpu, some of the voltage rails and a small amount of the chipset are all tested by the memory test, so there is a good chance that a failure shows up as a memory error of some kind.

Hardware is more fickle then platforms. I had a gentoo box that was a year old worked fine. Did some hardware upgrades to it and it worked for about 2 days. After that I started getting MEMDUMP issues.

I would run the memtest and see where that leads you. Also your logs are your friend.
