OK, so I've been trying to track this down. So far, I've tried a
replacement PS; no joy. Temp's OK, disabling ACPI for CPU didn't help...
Memtest didn't show any errors at first. Then I happened to catch the
lockup as I was sitting at the console, and ran memtest after a warm
boot. Almost immediately the screen turned red. Powercycle machine,
run memtest, memory is fine... Let it run until the next lockup, memory
So I have a stick of memory that fails after being on for some hours...
Never seen that before. I've now replaced the memory with some I had on
hand; we'll see if that helps.
Support my bid for the 4J School Board.
