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

What linux distribution are you running?
If all you see is a cursor and a blank screen and not even a tool bar then x windows desktop GUI) may not be functioning correctly. Also are you logged in as root or a regular user?
Most distributions disable root login via the desktop vut if enabled are only setup with a min configuration.
