Your symptom is also common to power supply going bad. Use small brush and clean/blow dust off motherboard and from inside of power supply. Replace power supply after first doing good cleaning. If you just added an new cpu chip to older box, recheck install instructions that you have motherboard jumpers correctly set.

Get something like healthd to monitor temp and the distributed.net client or Prime95, whatever can get that processor hot and see if it freezes up again.. Also, if you have something like a Knoppix boot CD available, try it and run the same things you do and see if the same happens. Considering it's a new processor, the BIOS should be set to either reboot or just boost the fans if the processor begins to overheat and I think it might even lower the power going to it to lower the temp. Try to get it to freeze again and reboot right away and check the temps in the BIOS. -- Elvedin T. sysadmin.ods.org <http://sysadmin.ods.org> ODS.org <http://www.ods.org> _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
