Angry X-Server Crashes




I have faced loads of X-Server crashes on my Redhat Linux Release 9 box.

Is it cos of Nvidia card? Amazingly my windows keeps crashing too.


How do I get my Nvidia card tested? It is possible that I have blown my card?


HELP

Did you check the XFree86 logs?. It's something worth investigating.

In my opinion putting your card on any other computer around should sort out the matter.

Ok, I checked the logs, but they don't mean a thing to me. The only thing I can guess is that it fails to load the drivers for my nVidia. Ditto in windows. So I am just wondering if its a card related thingy.

I don't have another computer where I can try this out. I guess I will have to call the local hardware shop.
