System hangs up or restarts

Hi,

I this problem where my laptop hangs up or suddenly restarts. Currently Iam using Fedora 15 but I had this problem when I was using fedora 13. I upgraded to 15 thinking that may be its been resolved in 15.

I have searched for possible solutions. my system software is up-to-date including the kernel which I took from the test repositeries..

I checked /var/log/messages for possible clues but I have not been able to figure it out. Below is the output of /var/log/messages files just before the laptop freezes or restarts.. so far the below output has been consistent with the event...

Code:
May 10 22:44:11 localhost ntpd[1622]: Listening on routing socket on fd #22 for interface updates
May 10 22:44:11 localhost ntpd[1622]: 0.0.0.0 c016 06 restart
May 10 22:44:11 localhost ntpd[1622]: 0.0.0.0 c012 02 freq_set kernel 16.857 PPM
May 10 22:44:18 localhost ntpd[1622]: 0.0.0.0 c61c 0c clock_step +0.160289 s
May 10 22:44:19 localhost ntpd[1622]: 0.0.0.0 c614 04 freq_mode
May 10 22:44:20 localhost ntpd[1622]: 0.0.0.0 c618 08 no_sys_peer
May 10 22:46:01 localhost dbus: [system] Activating service name='net.reactivated.Fprint' (using servicehelper)
May 10 22:46:01 localhost dbus: [system] Successfully activated service 'net.reactivated.Fprint'
May 10 22:49:07 localhost dbus: [system] Activating service name='org.freedesktop.PackageKit' (using servicehelper)
May 10 22:49:07 localhost dbus: [system] Successfully activated service 'org.freedesktop.PackageKit'
May 10 22:49:13 localhost kernel: [  358.468092] TCP lp registered

thanks in advance. I hope this gets sorted out. its really annoying. I am struggling with this prob since a month now..

currently I am using fedora 15 on toshiba m200 satellite laptop.

Re: System hangs up or restarts

Is it possible that you are having a heat related problem with your laptop?

Laptops are notorious for get dustbunnies caked up inside and then they start running really hot.

IF they overheat, then they lockup or shutdown or if you are lucky, they just thermal throttle and slow to a crawl.

Re: System hangs up or restarts

Im not sure if heating of the laptop is a problem becoz sometimes it works just fine for 2 hrs.

can bad sectors in the hard disk be responsible for such a behaviour?
