Mysterious hardlock

    Hi,

    I've been plagued by a mysterious, unpredictable hard-locking condition for
    about two months now. It is OS neutral--even attacking while FreeDOS is
    idling! (I've tested with Linux 2.4 & 2.6, FreeBSD 5.2.1, FreeDOS, and
    whatever memtest86 is) It doesn't seem to be related to any particular
    memory stick, or the whether the sound card or graphics are is
    initialized... I can compile the Linux kernel, or make world with FreeBSD,
    so my system *seems* ok. A friend of mine lent me a copy of Eurosoft's
    PC-Check. All the tests show green. I suspect a power-supply issue.

    Does anyone have any idea how to debug power issues? (not necessarily PSU)
    Does this sound like dirty A/C? Has anyone had any experience with
    brownouts?
