Here is the standard causes. I all most all cases this is a hardware problem.
Motherboard is overheating because of years of accumulated dust. Open box and use small paint brush to blow away dust on motherboard chips. Remove heat sink on CPU and clean out chocking dust and reinstall. Power supply's just go bad over time resulting in lower operating voltages to motherboard and hard drive. Hard drive will not spin as fast which causes the r/w heads not to fly above platter with out touching the surface. Hard disk starts going bad because of this and will need replacement along with the power supply. Power supply has cooling fan which can become plugged with dust. Cleaning out dust in power supply may result in output voltage to return to normal. Hard drive central bearing wears out over time and causes the platters to wobble allowing the r/w heads to rub on surface of platters causing surface damage and loss of data. What you may be experiencing is end-of-life of your PC. Back up your user data now or it may be gone for every. -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Behalf Of Laurence Sanford Sent: Sunday, April 09, 2006 8:57 AM To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: Panic/reboot - a little help. My desktop box, which has run very stable for a couple years now using which ever version of FreeBSD I've been running at the time, has developed a sudden and alarming need to panic. I have two vmcore files at this point, but I'm unsure how much actual help they'll be in figuring out what's happening because I don't have debugging compiled into the kernel (never needed it before!) nor do I actually know exactly how to gather any information from them if they *can* still be of use. I can tell you this has happened twice now in the past 5 hours. Once I was asleep, and once I was reading my email. I'm going to include what I can here, any suggestions or ideas what's happening will be a great help. [EMAIL PROTECTED](~)$ dmesg Copyright (c) 1992-2005 The FreeBSD Project.
