I tryed to install two times Ubuntu 5.04 amd-64 but the problem persist, the system completly freeze after a while, without doing something in particular, sometimes in the gdm screen, sometimes after some minutes of work.
Reading some forum and thinking that the problem was the video card I tryed doing those things:
Adding "vmalloc=256m" in the grub, but without success,
adding "acpi=off" in the grub, but the system not start, it freeze at the biginning of the boot process.
