Subject:   freezing with intel motherboard D865PERL 
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
Hello all,
I am having the following problem with a new system:
the system will install (minimal) fine from cd, after install when i am attempting to do anything cpu intensive (for example compiling a port or a custom kernal) the console freezes, I am not able to switch to another console, or ssh in, or ping the box after a ping.  I was wondering if anyone else has had this type of problem...and more importantly found a solution.

Box Specs:
Intel D865PERL motherboard
3.06 P4 CPU
40GB Maxtor HD (system)
2 x 250GB Western Digital HD (storage, not used or configured yet)
generic video card
onboard intel nic

other notes:
Generic 4.9 kernal
I have tried 5.1 and 5.2 and have experianced the same freezing problem, which makes me think the hardware route.

The box doesn't reboot when it freezes, so I don't think it is a temperature issue
I have switched out the power supply as well as the motherboard (same model)

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks for your time.
