System hangs up or restarts


Hi,

I this problem where my laptop hangs up or suddenly restarts. Currently Iam using Fedora 15 but I had this problem when I was using fedora 13. I upgraded to 15 thinking that may be its been resolved in 15.

I have searched for possible solutions. my system software is up-to-date including the kernel which I took from the test repositeries..

I checked /var/log/messages for possible clues but I have not been able to figure it out. Below is the output of /var/log/messages files just before the laptop freezes or restarts.. so far the below output has been consistent with the event...

Code:
May 10 22:44:11 localhost ntpd[1622]: Listening on routing socket on fd #22 for interface updates
May 10 22:44:11 localhost ntpd[1622]: 0.0.0.0 c016 06 restart
May 10 22:44:11 localhost ntpd[1622]: 0.0.0.0 c012 02 freq_set kernel 16.857 PPM
May 10 22:44:18 localhost ntpd[1622]: 0.0.0.0 c61c 0c clock_step +0.160289 s
May 10 22:44:19 localhost ntpd[1622]: 0.0.0.0 c614 04 freq_mode
May 10 22:44:20 localhost ntpd[1622]: 0.0.0.0 c618 08 no_sys_peer
May 10 22:46:01 localhost dbus: [system] Activating service name='net.reactivated.Fprint' (using servicehelper)
May 10 22:46:01 localhost dbus: [system] Successfully activated service 'net.reactivated.Fprint'
May 10 22:49:07 localhost dbus: [system] Activating service name='org.freedesktop.PackageKit' (using servicehelper)
May 10 22:49:07 localhost dbus: [system] Successfully activated service 'org.freedesktop.PackageKit'
May 10 22:49:13 localhost kernel: [  358.468092] TCP lp registered

thanks in advance. I hope this gets sorted out. its really annoying. I am struggling with this prob since a month now..

currently I am using fedora 15 on toshiba m200 satellite laptop.

Can't see any nasty errors there.
Do you know that Fedora is the R&D / unstable testbed for future RHEL releases? The 'test' repos are even more unstable...
If you want free & stable RHEL, go Centos.

thanks chris.. but Iam not looking to change distros rite now..

I think more related to hardware than software.. can bad sectors on the hard disk cause such errors? or maybe a latop is heating up.. Iam not able to quite pin point the problem..
