I've been using Linux for about half a year now-- MDK as of late-- but my system has gone totally crazy. While running KDE, if I left it idle for awhile, the whole system would hang. Soon after that, the system would get incredibly slow on the most basic things like... opening Mozilla or OOffice.
I formatted and things were okay for awhile, but I plugged my soundcard and tvtuner in. The NIC stopped working and then the system hanged again. And now it wont boot
Also, my HD is only abt half a year old but it makes all these lovely clicking noises- I suspect that may be part of the problem.
Oh, and one last thing. My keyboard (PS2) doesnt work in Windoze-- even right off the Windoze installation CD... but when I use a USB keyboard, everything is okay. Whats going on!?!
Here's my specs:
MDK 10/Win XP
Asus A7V600-X w/ 2600+ XP
512 Kingston RAM
200 GB Hitachi IDE HD
Leadtek WinFast 2000XP Deluxe
some crappy PCI soundcard
