I guess your X windows is incorrectly configured. However, my crystal ball is on the blink and I never was very good at extra sensory perception, so I'm not going to be able to tell you much more than that without a great deal more detail about symptoms -- what exactly do you see when the system hangs? What exactly did you do to try and configure things and so forth. Consult this article for guidance: http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html Some good things to check out: try looking at the /var/log/XFree86.0.log file -- there's usually some indication in there of what has gone wrong. Get hold of the manuals for your monitor and your video card and make sure that the HorizSync and VertRefresh frequency range settings in /etc/X11/XF86Config are within spec for both (look for the 'Section "Monitor"' stuff).
