are the keyboard/mouse ps/2 ?


what you could try doing (as a test) is to disable hyperthreading in the bios and use (when you see the grub menu) the NON-smp kernel listed


does it work ok then ?




hi thanks4 reply.... ya my mouse nd keyboard bot are ps/2. actualy i m very new to linux .. i m learning c on linux so i dnt know nything abt linux exept vi editor nd all. Can u pls explain me how to disable hyperthreading in bios... i didn't find any such option there.....

hyperthreading or dual core is normally listed under 'performance' in the bios, press F2 or DELete to enter the bios






hi..... i have searched for hyperthreading, but there is no such option in the bios........

I had the same problem. With distros like debian etch, fedora .

system configuration : intel pentium D processor, intel D102ggc mother board 512MB DDR2, 80 GB seagate Sata hardisk.

Currently i am havin fedora core 8. The same problem of system hangin after bootup sequence persisted.


On turning on single processor mode in BIOS things were fine........ so to once again make sure i changed the BIOS once again after rebooting this time i turned on off single processor mode......

again fedora won't boot....... o_O

on turning single processor mode on things seems to work fine.... [img]<___base_url___>/uploads/emoticons/default_rolleyes.gif[/img]


steps : Press F2 while booting. In Main menu just Enable the single processor mode.


hopefully things might work fine.


I had not tried the same with Debian.
