I have PS2 Keyboard and Mouse...
I have a USB D-Link WebCam with integrated mic.
I'm useing sound on board.

Ok, here is what's going on!

I installed FC3 x86_64 from the 4 CDs I downloaded, seens then it's been freezen to death, it only freezes on Linux, I checked Tempertures and everyting seems fine, Voltages are wierd in Linux but Win XP report them OK, I decided to update the kernel from kernel-2.6.9-1.667 to


I installed NVIDIA Video Drivers and the problem didn't stopped, the freezes are very random (minutes, hours, days, 3D playing, blackbox...anything goes 'til I know) and I don't get any clue from the logs of the system, it freezes entirly, it doesn't accept ssh nor pings...

One time when I was upgradeing from kernel 681 to 724 I got a freeze, then I just turnoff the PC from the Power Button and went to sleep, next day I turned the PC on and I got no mouse nos keyboard, I tryed rebooting and getting to my BIOS but the KB just wouldn't work, then I dicided to turn of the PC and noticed that the KB lights [Caps, Num, Scroll] kept on, so I turn off the Power Source 'til the lights went off, then I turned on again, turned the PC on and I got KB and Mouse working again.

I Attached several info from my Linux session, some logs an commands output...

My Mobo only have 2 Fan Sensors (CPU and System) and only CPU Temp sensors, the other ones are out of place (M/B and System Temp) I think lm_sensors it's not getting my voltage right 'cos WinXP doesn't report any problems with that.

Well... Hope anyone my help... thanksfor your time
