Got a problem that 8 cant quite figure out

Recommended Posts

Ive recently got my hands on a Acer Aspire X1700-U3700A.

 

Pentium E2220 / 2.4 GHz Dual-Core CPU

NVIDIA GeForce 7100 / nForce 630i GPU

4GB DDR2 ram

250GB HDD - 2 ram slots

 

The problem is that it will randomly lock up im ubuntu user and randomly the system will just lock up.

 

Have you any ideas what could be causing this, ive changed the hard drive and ram sticks i dont have a gpu for the pci express which wont help much

 

Also do you think it will be able to handle running a personal cloud with 7 users connecting via webdav?

Well Ubuntu is pretty stable. Is it locking up when under load or idle?

Sometimes i have a terminal open n open a web browser n its will lock up or it can go a few hours under load n then lock up that's what gave me the impression its a hardware issue

I would agree. However I do not have any experience with stability testing in Ubuntu. I don't want to suggest possible issues that are unrelated. I have a bunch of stuff laying around so if I am being lazy i'll swap parts left and right. But not everyone has that option.

From what ive read on the web it could be my WiFi dongle, but that's caused a issue i cant use Ethernet at the moment as my router has 2 eth ports, need a switch or something.

Might have to give it a whirl without the WiFi dongle do you know any good ways of testing the system benchmarks or diagnostic software
