Not so long ago I aquired a new laptop. Appart from some issues which were to be expected everything works fine; appart from one thing: When playing videos with mplayer it hangs up my system at random times( Mostly within half an hour of videplayback though ) . The video-playback stops, sound blocks and I can't acces my laptop anymore; not even switch to tty0 to check for debug messages.

My guess is it has something to do with either the audio or the videodriver, respectively snd_hda and the "intel" driver in Xorg. So I did 2 tests, without gaining any additional knowlege however:

I tried unloading the snd_hda module and sound modules and play the video to see if there was a problem with the video-part. I let it ran for a couple of hours and everything seemed to be fine

The second thing I tried was just using mplayer -vo null and playing the video. Same as the above test; it ran fine for a couple of hours straight.

So no I have no Idea anymore what I could do to determine whatever is going wrong. I hope someone else has an idea or might have a pointer to what I could do to gain more information about this. The relevant system data:
