Default 7300GS locks using nvidia drivers

Hi to all,
I am experiencing hard lockups on my machine using nvidia drivers (hope to end this e-mail before it does happen again).
Things frustrating is that this problems are completely random, and seems unrelated to the load. Sometimes I can run glxgears for hours without any problem, sometimes the machine freezes some minutes after boot.
The machine locks and only resort is hard reboot. No oops or messages in logs after reboot.

PC: Aopen XCcube
Distro Archlinux
kernel 2.6.19-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Jan 11 20:36:34 UTC 2007 x86_64 AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3200+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux
NVIDIA 9746

Attached related logs.

Thanks.

Things to do: run memtest to check ram; watch cpu/gpu temps - too high and they can lock the pc; try another distro for a day - does Windows lock too?

I also have an ATI based motherboard, with a RS480 PCI-X root port and a 7300GS like you and i'm also experiencing frequent lockups. I don't know if this is true, but it seem to often happen when my swap usage gets high. And yes, this happens with or without the composite extension

Remove this from xorg.conf, retest.
Code:
    Load       "dri"

Is this problem related to the past one with GF6200 together with RS480 chip?

About removing dri, it does not help. I have just crashed again (well, on friday it was a whole day without crash, today already two).

Any more hint?

Your problem might not be nvidia related but somewhere else in linux or configuration. To test this theory switch to the basic "vesa" X driver (or "nv") for a good number of hours. Those drivers are not 3D

Using nv drivers from stock xorg does not have issues (apart from no 3D). The system runs flawlessy for days, while I did wait for 9746 version of the driver (the 9631 I did test had problems as I did read on the 6200/ati rs480/turbocache thread, so I resorted back to nv until Xmas, when on that thread nvidia said bug was corrected.).
And the temp for the nvidia GPU remains under 45 deg. Locking happen at random, not related to the GPU usage. The system just freezes.
