Only thing I'm running that isn't in the repo's is the nVidia driver for my
Geforce FX550.

Oh, Thnx for the reply!!


Please try to update your nVidia Driver to the current level version and see
if that solves your problem. Make sure you are using the X config file that
is generated by the driver and do not add anything to it (as in options).
Some options if your mother board can not handle or support it, it will
freeze lockup etc.

Let me Know how it goes..
