Ok have this problem with linux mce in both RC1 Beta 3 & 4 ,I install it grand and about 10 to 20 minutes it become unstable .doesn't respond to keyboard or mouse or remote control. all i can do is a reboot .now i was told to install the latest drivers for nvidia graphics card,i did that and it still the same .i have uploaded pictures of my screen before and about 10 minutes after .

any ideas what is causing the system to crash.

I've had this when i used the DVD install image with 710b4 and a Nvidia 6600Gt APG card
i went round in circles as it looked like a possable bad system ram/heat issue. Found info on the web todo with the nvidia agp settings (google for nvagp issues)

In the end i did a full reload with the CD install method.
Works a treat now.
So...
What hardware you using,
What install method you using etc......
