I can give you more information the next time I'm home. The info I have know is what i remember.
It's running the main Edition of Linux Mint 6: Felicia. It happens in any desktop environment I use with the default Gnome one being the one I use most of the time.
Pentium III@ 1 Ghz
256 Mb of Sdram (2x 128's)
Radeon 9200SE Graphics card
The motherboard has integrated graphics from Intel which I don't use, and I'm sure the sound is Intel as well. I can give that later when I get the chance.
the Hard drive now is a 160 GB Western Digital 7200 RPM ATA drive.
A PCI Wireless card from Linksys (the problem existed ebfore and after I installed the card)
A generic network interface card
1x IDE CDROM Drive, 24x (Master)
1x IDE DVD-ROM drive, 12x I think. (Slave)
3x USB ports, with only two of them being useable at any time. (1 in the front, two in the back).
The standard serial, parallel, ps/2, and vga ports are on the back. The serial is actually on the front.
My keyboard and mouse connect through a usb hub along with my dvd burner. The mouse is an optical mouse, the keyboard generic. The drive is LG. The problem existed before and after I used the usb hub and LG Drive. The mouse I'm using is my second one for the system and the keyboard my thrid. The other didn't die, I just find different looks and set-ups that change my comfort and switch to them.
The pc is an HP Pavilion 7940. I connect it to my monitor via the vga port on my graphics card. M y screen resolution is 1360x768@60hz. The problem exists on a fresh install as well as an old one loaded with many programs. I don't know if I enabled dri yet on this install or even messed with Xorg. Whichever drivers come with Felicia will be the ones installed. their during their job so I'm not messing with them at the moment. At least not until I start to mess with games again.
