need more info

Does it hang at boot? When does it hang? Does it hang about the same time daily?

How new is the load? What is the CPU Load?

Is the HD full?

need more info

well, it does not hang at boot time. it hangs when working on it or sometimes when nobody is working. There is no specific time for it to hang once a day or twice a day it hangs for 20-30 mins then it comes back to normal or we have to reboot the machine. Usage( cpu/memory) is not much . 40gb hdd is there and earlier /var was 98 % usage and now i hv created space . currently is is using only 34 % space. I ahve also stopped GUI (/etc/inittab to init level 3). what could be the raeson.

could possibly be a hardware problem? Can you trust that all the hardware in that comp is 100% reliable?

When things like this happen, you have to take everything into consideration.

I think jay may have hit it on the nose when he suggested "updatedb". Every day, around 4:20 PM, updatedb runs on my computer and uses up 35-50% of my processor.
