Why don't you explain the problem?
I presume you're getting spontaneous reboots, but those an be caused by other
I'd think that if the power is marginal, starting a fredgen freezer or vacuuum
cleaner on the same circuit would trigger the problem.

Well ok, here goes. I recently did a post about X quiting out with a
sig11 a lot. Its usually about once or twice a week but the other day
it did it like 3 times in a row. The only responce I got was that it
could be bad ram. So I ran memtest on the machine. Nothin, I have
registered ECC ram (required for my board) I've pulled the sound card,
no effect. I havent had a spontaneous reboot since I got the new
video card. Which gives me the same effect weather I use the
comercial nvidia drivers or the open source nv drivers. I dont seem
to have the same problem in windows, but I run windows about as much
as I run in the street. The only thing I've come up with is that its
either the power supply, or I need to get some sort of line
conditioner for the plug its pluged into. I have a beautiful surge
protector, but I guess that wouldnt stop drops in the power level.
Thanks for all your help.
