Default Re: Display freeze

The machine's processes continue to run (music still plays, mouse still moves).
so i'd imagine ssh would work to, sadly i have no way of connecting to it, at least until i get a new router.

I had a similar issue with the onboard ethernet in combination with an FX5200, had to use a pci ethernet card so I could assign it a different IRQ. The nvidia driver should be able to use a shared IRQ but I've never gotten it to work.

If the machine hangs are you able to log in remotely using ssh? That way you can at least reboot the machine properly
