    Add the PSU to list of suspects, especially after a recent h/w upgrade,
    a PSU without enough power will make everything look OK when idle but
    push the machine a bit... components start drawing more power than the
    PSU can supply, it will no longer be able to supply it.

    Seems after 2 years of good conduct my Crucial memory has decided to self
    destruct.

    I ran memtest on boot and had a very large row of red blocks when I came
    back in the morning.

    Also noticed that Firefox crashes now when I try to open properties as well.

    Think it might need stripping out and re installing again.

    or maybe there has been so many updates its a mess in there. Might download
    the full Gutsy CD and re install from clean.

    Is that before or after replacing the faulty RAM?

    I'd go with replacing the RAM first and see how it goes from there.

    Errorfree memory is crucial. And apparently NOT: Crucial memory is
    errorfree.

    Easy: take out one memory module and rerun memtest. If OK, be happy. If not
    OK, swap the modules and rerun memtest on the other memory modules.
    I'm quite confident only one memory module is faulty as chances are very
    little that two modules turn faulty.

    Well, memory is cheap, so buy new stuff if needed.

    do i have: iceape =~ seamonkey, no, i have firefox 15012 (thunderbird),
    thats xubuntu 6 lts "default"
    both are not on the dapper repository. Seamonkey is supposed to be "to
    much different" for xu 6 lts.

    about the plugin, i have: libflash-mozplugin while there also is:
    flashplugin-nonfree.

    I think it is sound related, on my employers ms winxp box, after about
    12 seconds or so a "stamp", with sound, is "put" on the www.lowcall.nl
    site, which was not there a month ago. No hang back then either.

    By the way, i do appreciate help. But it does not mean i do things
    suggested "just like that" ... ;-)

    Or: install Mandriva instead of (k)ubuntu on your system will all the memory
    (including faulty) in it: Mandriva uses BADRAM to handle ... well ...Bad
    RAM. This worked great for me for years; only after installin kubuntu I
    painfully discovered I had a bad RAM module in my system.

    Or compile BADRAM into your Ubuntu. See
    http://rick.vanrein.org/linux/badram/

    Or: shuffle the faulty module into the upper bank, use memtest to discover
    where the problem starts, and then use something like "mem=420" to block
    usage of faulty memory above 420 MB

    Except if the motherboard has gone bad, when the RAM will probably test OK
    in other machines. That's how I learnt to check my power suppply fans

    I've never had any bad RAM in my 50 computers over 30+ years. I have
    never worn any static grounding wrist bands, etc., simply discharging
    myself before handling memory. And in the winter, I can normally pull a
    good-length arc of static after walking on some of my carpets.

    However, I have had memory tests showing bad memory.

    When I pull some of the SIMMS, DIMMS, etc. to test the others, by the
    time I finish I usually have cleared the problem -- corroded memory
    socket contacts or RAM card-edge connectors.

    Pull the sticks, "erase" the contacts with a rubber eraser, blow away
    the rubber residue, then reseat the sticks. Might solve the problem,
    saving your time and expense.

    reply on "myself," found suggestions in newsgroups:

    avifile-win32-plugin:
    apt-get show: In general you do not need this plugin
    avifile-mjpeg-plugin:
    apt-get show: NOTICE:
    Win32 codecs are NOT part of this package and have to be downloaded
    separately!
    are both missing, but not really, I suppose ...


    suggestions on:

    totem-gstreamer-firefox-plugin:
    Depends: totem-gstreamer (which i do not have installed, yet)
    Conflicts: totem-xine-firefox-plugin

    Nice, but,
    what I consider to do:

    flashplugin-nonfree
    sudo update-flashplugin

    sun-java5-jre
    sun-java5-plugin
    sudo update-alternatives --config java

    Any suggestions before I try this serious delete / install actions?
