    Toshiba Satellite 1135-s155 locksup

    Hello,

    The Knoppix 6.2 version boots and works for a few minutes then locks up. Maybe able to access the internet using a browser however the cursor stops and the system stalls or locks up.

    Any Suggestions?
    Sincerely,

    Mark Spalenka

    Well, if it's not a hardware problem (use F2/F3 to get help with hardware issues), then I think you have a marginal disk. Good news - it's not so hard to fix. Try the media self-test, i.e.
    Code:
    knoppix testcd
    or
    Code:
    knoppix testdvd
    at the boot prompt to check whether you have a good burn on the disk. There are a LARGE number of bad/marginal burns and/or downloads. If it isn't okay, check the md5-sum of your ISO file to make sure it's right, then re-burn at a slower speed, or use another media type if you have one, i.e. CDRW.

    Hope that helps!
