  1. box freezes without apparent rhyme or reason . . .

    Hi,
    ~
    my computer tends to freeze without any discernible pattern. It
    happens sometimes after a short time, but sometimes it happens after a
    long time
    ~
    I have run memtest after booting linux/knoppix and it all seems OK. No
    problems are detected whatsoever and sometimes right before it happens
    my box still shows more than 256MB of RAM as free
    ~
    The only thing I do always notice is that squarish patterns start
    appearing on the screen right before ti happens. You can see an example
    here (notice the (not-always) white square box, but almost always having
    the same size)

    Here is a dmesg dump from the box. What is wrong with it?

    I'm guessing it's heat-related. Does the freezing happen more (or less)
    predictably with the case open? Or maybe it's a dodgy card or DIMM.
    Try taking some out and see what changes.

    > Here is a dmesg dump from the box. What is wrong with it?


    What you need is a log with timestamps, so you can match the logged
    events up with what you see. /var/log/{messages,syslog} might do.

  3. Re: box freezes without apparent rhyme or reason . . .

    Does the machine freeze or just the I/O freezes ? (eg: when this
    happens can you ping this machine from another in the network ?)
    I can think of three things which may cause such symptoms.
    1. Overheating issue on you Graphics card or your Motherboard
    2. Screensaver and/or power savings issue (is the screen saver
    openGL ? is the power savings on ?)
    3. Power regulation on the motherboard issue (visually check your
    motherboard and see if any of the Capacitors have bursted or are
    swolen)

    Cheers

    P.S. I also noticed the following on your Dmsg log. Could this do
    it ?
    "Boot video device is 0000:00:02.0
