disable your screensaveers and see if that helps

 

ive seen some screensavers cause problems in X before, of course that might not be it, becuase you didnt give us much information

 

cheers

Two of the most common PC problems are:

 

1. Your CPU is too hot (or the main board in general). Make sure to clean out all the airducts and open that bad boy up and blow some compressed air around. Also make sure all those fans are spinning like they should.

 

2. Bad memory. Buy cheap, get crap. Like most things in life, if it's cheap it probably sucks. Run over to http://www.memtest86.com/ download their program and let it run on your machine over night. It should help you diagnose those types of problems (or at least isolate them).

 

I have a feeling it's likely the hardware and not the software.

 

I do have one question though. When it's "locked" are you able to press your numlock key and have the light go on and off?
