View Full Version : [ubuntu] 10.04 stability problem

May 22nd, 2010, 08:18 PM
I have a desktop system with an ECS 945 GCT-M motherboard and an Intel Pentium Dual Core E2200 CPU running at 1.8 GHZ with 4GB DDR2/667 RAM. This system is stable under Ubuntu 9.04 and Windows 7, but is unstable under Ubuntu 10.04. It will boot, log me in and run for anywhere from 30 seconds to 15 minutes before is seizes. When it seizes, the only course of action is to do a hard restart or turn off the power. There appears to be no pattern to this behavior. It can happen any time, with any application or utility.

Any one with ideas?

This is the first time I've read of an Elitegroup stability problem with chipsets other than the nVIDIA nForce family that kept doing uncommanded shutdowns on me under 8.04.2 (I now use the Advance Micro Devices 780G and accompanying ATI Radeon HD3200 under 10.04). Apparently Elitegroup Computer Systems puts serious problems for LinUX users into their products, as they use a Microsoft ACPI firmware tool for their BIOS; more information is at The DSDT Thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1147474). Both ASUStek and Gigabyte still use the proven Intel IASL compiler for their mobo's.

something that is dynamic to any OS? well here we go with the
classic Microsoft vs Linux thing.
