Default Re: FC6 on Dell XPS710 H2C - OS "loses" hard drives

After running for a few hours the OS will lose the ability to write to the disks. The kernel errors with "journal commit I/O error" when it can't write the ext3 journal to the disk. After this any command will generally result in "end_request: I/O error, dev sda".

At this point I can't even shutdown cleanly and a hard restart is necessary.
All,

I have managed to capture the death of my box using an offboard USB hard drive (attached).

I think you may be able to ignore the USB errors - the OS seems to have a hard time with the card readers in my Dell monitor - but maybe I need a better driver for the MCP55?. I'll also attach the lspci output.

Please take a look and let me know if I can collect more information which would help. This happens VERY frequently: 8-10 times a week!

Thanks,
Dr. Ock.
