Don't be. When I've had problems like this, it almost always turned out
to be hardware. I'd check memory first. Let memtest86 run for a while
I'm not familiar with memtest86, how would I run it?
on it. If that turns out OK, my next suggestion would be the power
supply. Unless you have a way to test it, putting another one in is
I am pretty sure it is not the power supply, because it has been running worry free for a while now.
about the easiest solution to see it the lockups go away. It could also
be a drive going bad.
I have a software RAID 1 array if this is the case, which I sure hope it isn't. When I hard reset the machine after lockup, it "replays transactions," which I think, from what I've heard, means that the hard drive was trying to written to, or something along those lines. It usually averages about 700 transactions "replayed" after a hard reset.
My system already boots with the noapic command normally.Also, if it is hardware, try giving the boot parameter of "noapic" when
your system boot. In a lot of situations I have found the "advanced
programmable interrupt controller" not to be very advanced at all.
The only other thing I could think of was maybe it was overheating, so I clocked the processor down a little bit. It is a sempron 2800+ machine running at 2.0 Ghz. (Stock 1.7 Ghz). The airflow on the machine isn't the best, but it hasn't choked out before. Could this be a valid reason for it to lock up?
Also, are there any logs or anything I can look at to tell me the source of the problem?
It decides randomly to lock up, with no particular pattern. The only thing I can think of that has been consistent is that the HDD light on the case is completely off whenever it freezes.
Thanks for your help!
