I'm using Ubuntu Dapper .
I had system freeze when I had Windows some years ago, but when I switched to linux there were no
freeze up 3 week ago, system freezes very frequent .
When system freezes none of keyboard, mouse, ... works, even I don't have monitor refresh.
I know that it's not kernel problem, SysRq
is enabled but doesn't work when system freezes, so there is something with hardware.
I've tested RAM with memtest86 and after 3 passes no error found .
Now I think its something with VGA .
I have a S3 Savage2000
card that hase a broken fan on it!!
and as you know linux S3 driver doesn't support Savage2000.
my mainboard is GA-8IR533
What's your Opinion?
Is it VGA problem? or can be something else?
