System locks up randomly

Asked by MTMartin on 2009-02-03

Beginning after my last update, the system randomly slows to an unusable crawl. To be specific, I can move the mouse about 1 inch every 5-10 seconds but can't click on anything and keyboard shortcuts don't work. Have to do a hard reset. The following is posted in the sys log prior to every restart. Maybe that will help.

On most logs I see this prior to the lockup:

Any Wine or Propietary software running on this PC?, Have you check your RAMs?

MTMartin (pilotguy777) said : #2

below is the terminal text. Not sure what you mean by Wine or Propietary. I have not installed anything outside of updates since the problem started. Also, what do you mean by "check your RAMs"?

The watchdog program writes to /dev/watchdog every ten seconds.
If the device is opened but not written to within a minute, the machine will reboot.
The ability to reboot will depend on the state of the machine and interrupts.

result from my Ubuntu Package Search : http://packages.ubuntu.com/intrepid/watchdog

so..., uninstall Watchdog
