The computer downstairs won't stay up for more than four hours at a time. Its primary job is to be the Internet connexion for my Toronto home; as well as provide essential services like e-mail. But it doesn't do that now, it just hangs, with no kernel oopses or anything.

I wonder what could be wrong? I did a block-scan fsck, and now I'm running memtest86 overnight.

First thing I did. Nothing seems to be stopped, and the system runs cool as a cucumber.

Memory or heat.

I was guessing memory as well, but it appears that the motherboard is broken. My current theory is that the memory controller has given up the ghost.

I had similar problems because of a borken ide controller.
