    Freezing from hardware.


    I'm having trouble finding the root of my problem. My comp keeps freezing or rebooting and it did the same under every distro I used and windows. It worked fine for almost 2 years now. I have know (or believe) it's either faulty memory or the video card. I've had a couple of paging erros at boot but the freezing has gotten worse since I installed the nvidia drivers. I would really like to have a figure out what is wrong. If I could find a log file that saves the kernel data(suse 9.3) it would be helpful, to pin point this error. Update me with some advice.

    suse has an option in grub to run memtest, see if that returns some errors. Also, you could take a look at /var/log/messages to see what the errors are.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
