Linux Mint 10 on Asus K52J freezes sometimes
 
hello,

I've installed Linux Mint 10 on Asus-K52J laptop.
Everything works fine except sometimes, the system freezes for 20 seconds and unfreezes.

Here dmesg after the freeze.
Code:

Does anyone have an idea ?

Seems to me that your computer has problems with the harddisk. I would recommend to test the disk with the tool from the disk-manufacturer. If you don't know the manufacturer I would recommend the Hitachi Drive Fitness Test, it will test drives from all manufacturers. Burn it as an ISO-image and boot from it. I would recommend the Advanced test.

Thanks for the link...

do you think I could test the hard drive with smartctl.

That should also work, I just personally trust the tools from the manufacturers a little bit more (don't know why, just personal preference).
