Since I ran Mandrake 8.1 & the corresponding NVIDIA driver, I have experienced random freeze problems when using my PC.
I have moved from Mandrake 8.1, 8.2, 9.0, 9.1 & 9.2 with the same problem.
I first accused my ELSA ERAZOR IIILT graphic card (I have read that it overburned, which caused the crash)
Recently, I have purchased a HERCULES 3D PROPHET II MX (based on a geforce 2 MX chip) and I get the same behavior.
I have moved from the 4496 driver downloaded as a RPM from the Mandrake site to the 5328 one, downloaded from the NVIDIA site with no significative change.
My actual software configuration is linux mandrake 9.2 and gnome 2.4.
I begin considering killing myself !
I attach a text file describing all my configuration.
please, HELP !!
