Well PC hardware trouble, i think it is that, what do U think?

Well I can start telling what hardware I have:

Dual Pentium II 350MHz CPU's with 512kb L2 ECC cache
Asus P2B-D motherboard with Award BIOS
Adaptec AHA-2940U2W SCSI card PCI(based on the Adaptec AIC 7890 chip)
LeadTek Winfast L2300 videoboard, 2D/3D OpenGL PCI(3D Labs Permedia2
chip)
Seagate Cheetah 9LP Ultra2 SCSI hdd, 9,1GB, 1MB cache, 5,2ms, 10000prm
256MB PC-100 SDRAM, 7ns, in 2x128MB configuration
PS/2 mouse, PS/2 keyboard
external PowerBit modem on COM1
with a normal floppydrive

SCSI CD-ROM from NEC: 6xi or something like that

All this in an Aopen ATX midi-tower box

The problem is:

While running Linux (Slackware 3.6, kernel 2.0.35):

Both with the AIC7890 boot kernel and with a kernel that I have compiled
(with the AIC7890 patch)
SMP or not it doesn't matter.

The system totally hangs, and takes no input from user.
or
The system hangs, and takes no input from user, except for changing
ttyX's (virtual consoles)
(ALT+F1, ALT+F2 etc...)

Sometimes the system prints out the following message:

IRQ DEADLOCK DETECTED BY CPU 0          <-- can't remember if it was CPU0 or CPU
0

It somethimes happends when I run:

ppp-go
mount /dev/scd0 /cdrom
umount /cdrom
tar zxvf filename
gunzip something
tar xvf something
copy a file from CD to HDD in MidnightCommander
once when I tried to install StarOffice 5.0 DeLuxe

also XF86 3.3.3 runs extremly slow on it and the system doesnt speed up
in tty mode until i reboot it, this does not appear with AccelX

I also have got this Kernel-OOPs when trying to run hdparm -t(or -T) on
/dev/sda(1,2 or just sda)

In MS-DOS 6.2 Quake 1.08 makes some error output, wich I havn't dumped,
i think the kernel-oops is more intresting
(I ran it just to test, I have got it running once, but not now
anymore.)

Windows 95 sometimes installs but won't start after that. The last time
I tried the Setup-program hanged just after the License.

When trying to start win95 I got a bluescreen, then something displays
in dos-mode (gery text on black background) and the computer truns of
the power.
No chanse to see what it prints to the screen.


about what it can be!!!


 
 
 

1. If you still think Y2K is BS... think again.

For those of you that still think that Y2K is
hype take a look at this article in ComputerWeekly.

NY IT blues (excerpts follow)

State halts new projects as report warns of
millennium meltdown

By Liam White

Governor George Pataki declared "a moratorium on
all new technology initiatives which impact an
agency's ability to achieve date compliance".

Both city and State governments must find hundreds
of millions of dollars to tackle the millennium bug...

The city's trouble is compounded by the recent
departure of the head of its year 2000 project
to a job in the private sector...

... expects the city's hospitals to be reduced
to accepting emergency cases only, and schools
to be closed for up to a month. Power supplies
and telecoms are only expected to be available
at half their normal levels, and banks and the
stock market will be shut for up to eight days...

...predictions for New York in 2000

 Electricity supply only 50% available 1-10 January
 Hospitals emergency-only for four weeks
 Schools closed for four weeks
 Stock market and banks closed for eight days
 Telecoms - 50% availability 1-10 January
 Post - 10 days disruption
 Transport (air/rail/bus) - 30 days disruption

Why do I think that they are still
underestimating the whole thing?
