that active memory might be a problem. I also had indications that the hard
drive was corrupted. I work for Alpine School District. I took the machine
into the district to have them look at it. They replaced the hard drive but
I don't think they looked at active memory. Could it be a memory problem?
I've only got Linux on the machine right now. As a last resort, I may try
duel booting Windows and Linux to see if that fixes the problem.
