1 SATA WD 80Gb HD (Linux FC3)

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

kernel-2.6.9-1.681_FC3
kernel-2.6.9-1.724_FC3
kernel-2.6.10-1.741_FC3

I installed NVIDIA Video Drivers NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-6629-pkg2.run 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

This A64 was unstable at the shop before they put good ram in it. Check your ram with memtest86.

memtest86+ didn't report any errors

How did you come to this conclusion?? Is it something in the logs??

No... just my personal experience. And some confirmations by others in these forums. You might want to try using the "nv" driver to see if it's nvidia's ones causing you grief.
