ALL kernels, black screen, sometimes prints ASCII
 
1 Attachment(s)
The screen used to go black, and flicker blue once, and stop responding. number lock works... i can SSH into machine to get logs.. if i try and kill X it crashes the machine hard... complete lock out...

when i run ps aux i can see X is running 99% of CPU

All the options enabled in XFConfig below have been added (when options are removed the flicker happens.. if not:) I now get a screen with ASCII printed.. just junk.. no flicker.

I have:
Athlon XP 2200
Soyo Ultra Platinum, KT333
PNY GeForce 3 Ti200
Crucial 512 DDR-333
ALL tested kernels (2.4.22+, 2.6.x)
ALL distributions (Fedora, Redhat, Debian)

I have tested with following kernel options on and off:
ACPI/APM
Fb-Nvidia/Riva
Pre-empt


The Log is attached below and this is my XFConfig File:

# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of

# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the

# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"

# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:

# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"

# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
