    Lol @ you 2

    Don't worry erayd, I know what you mean

    Anyway... regards overheating.. it shouldn't be. The heatsink is an XP90 with SilenX fan and AM2 bracket. Just checked fan is revolving, and air from fan is quite cool (though not compiling anything right now). What cli tools does Linux have to confirm this? (I don't have conky or gkrellm installed)

    Will run memtest now.
    Will let you know how that went after work

    I would suspect the memory as well, but it wouldn't hurt to check the hard drive too.

    Do you have lm-sensors installed?

    Yeah grab the lm_sensors package then run sensors-detect. It'll run through a scanning process, setup the relevant .conf files automatically, then just run: sensors

    +1 to Chill's reply

    Also if you want hard disk temps, install hddtemp. Gsmartcontrol is another package thats very good for checking disk health if you have a SMART enabled drive.

    Ok...
    Memtest reports (after 10 passes) there are no errors
    Smartmontools passed both SATA drives
    hddtemps reports both drives at about 48-50 degrees C
    sensors reports the cpu running at a cool 17 degrees C

    I dont have another linux box for ssh, so might use other XP box and throw something like putty on it. And wait....

    erayd, You mentioned some other things... keep an eye on your messenger tomorrow (too knackered tonight)

    This is a question as I know naff all about linux, esp when it goes wrong - But does Linux have the equivalent of windows event Viewer ?

    1 Thing that wouldn't change no matter what the OS is - does the HDD activity light on the case stay on solid when it locks - meaning the HDD is trying to work but cant ?

    How on Earth is your CPU running that cool?
    All the technology and software in the universe is useless when the end user has the IQ of a sack of hammers.
