I'm having a problem similar to a post previously on this board (I can't link to it because it says i have to have more than 5 posts, sorry)
and i have very similar issues. As in that post, my computer will just hang out of nowhere. It doesn't matter what program I use, it's even frozen on me when the screen saver went on. The only thing i'm able to do is move the mouse cursor around. I try CTRL+ALT+F2 and sometimes it works, other times i have to do a hard reset. I've had Mandrake 10.0 installed on this HDD before and that never happened. When i use XP or Knoppix, they don't freeze. My hardware is the following:
nvidia geforce2 mx 400
768 mb RAM
I am currently using Suse Linux 10.0. I also use another HDD with XP (Suse is for linux experimentation). I've done the following tests:
1.I've checked my RAM with memtest, no errors
2. I've checked my Suse HDD with e2fsck with no errors (the following is the result)
115110 inodes used (8%)
659 non-contiguous inodes (0.6%)
# of inodes with ind/dind/tind blocks: 5936/52/0
721964 blocks used (27%)
0 bad blocks
0 large files
I'm now down to the Graphics card driver. I believe i've updated the drivers using Yast, but I'm not sure how to check the driver version number.
Are there any suggestions as to what I can do? I might try out another distro if this I can't do anything about it, although I love how easy Suse is to use.
Thanks in advanced!
