Freezing constantly...

Anyone have an idea of what it could be? I just seem to freeze at random times when messing around online or trying to download something.

Running RH 9.0 with the most recent kernel, KM2M MS-6738 motherboard, Athlon AMD 1800x processor with 768ram.

I dont think the freezing it being caused by my system overheating... I have the air down to 60, my box is open and a fan is blowing on it.

blah blah blah... sick of problem, please help

Thank you,

How is the system locking up? Does it require you to power down and restart? From what you said, it sounds like a hardware issue, like something's up with some of your RAM. But without more details, it's hard to guess.

Do you have an inbuilt Network card? . The very same happened with me when I had one...

By 'freezing' I mean everything locks up, I cant move my mouse and keyboard stops functioning.... I dont think my RAM is the problem here. It was doing it ( freezing ) before and after I installed/configured my ram.

My network card seemed to be supported when I installed originally... It had installed the driver already before I even logged into my user profile after installing.

Im using a VT86c100A Rhine-II PCI network card.
