    Default HD 3300 GPU hang - hardware or software problem?

    Hi,

    I have 4 nearly identical machines (same brand and model of motherbaord)
    with AMD 790GX + SB750 Chipsets containing an (onbaord) Radeon HD 3300
    graphics chip.

    All of these run identical systems
    kernel 2.6.31-r4, xorg-server-1.6.5 and ati-drivers-9.10

    On one of these machines freezes after some hours with the
    following message in /var/log/messages

    Nov 5 11:35:48 numa-iii kernel: [fglrx] ASIC hang happened
    Nov 5 11:35:48 numa-iii kernel: Pid: 2698, comm: X Tainted: P W
    2.6.31-gentoo-r4 #2

    _ZN4Asic19PM4ElapsedTimeStampERK23PM4_TS_INTERRUPT _PARAMSj14_LARGE_INTEGER+0x134/0x1c0
    [fglrx]

    and so on.

    Shall I conclude that this motherboard is broken?
    Or is it bug in ati-drivers (not to recover from this).

    What can I do otherwise?

    Many thanks,
    Helmut.

    Default

    Switch to the opensource radeon driver, it's more stable and of better quality than fglrx. I doubt you'll see another asic hang again.
