Whats this Lie-nix Thing?

hello everyone.

I have a debian server that appears to completely stop working after a random amount of time. I just got 2 months out of it, but now I'm barely getting a few days.

When I say it stops working, I mean it stops working. I can't get an image on the monitor, I can't toggle caps lock/num lock etc. I can't ping it at all, however the lights on the NIC stay on, indicating that there is a connection. The only thing I can do it reboot it. I have checked dmesg immediately after rebooting it when this happens, and as far as I can see, there is nothing wrong.

I have put my dmesg on

I'm thinking it's hardware though, but maybe I'm missing something. I have taken out all the hardware, and reseated it properly. As yet, I have not had an issue with it doing that, but that was only a few hours ago.

Thank you for any help smile.gif

Nothing obvious in the output of dmesg.
Might want enable smart and make sure nothing is wrong with the hard drive.
There could be power supply problems as well as some individual component on the mother board that is failing possibly due to heat.

Can you post the hardware specifications?
