Hi !

I´m trying to install Redhat 5.1, and offcourse i have these signal 11
problem....
On this computer i have had redhat 4 before with no problems. My
processor a pentium90, have been overclocked to 100Mhz in 1.5 year, but
not the latest month. I also have win95, and after thath i purchase some
more RAM, and a cd-burner i got some problems. My damn win95 started to
hang more often then usual. When i took my processor down to 90 again it
did get a little better, but not much.
Ok i think you say, o its a memory problem, but i have four 60ns
16MB-modules, and i took away the new ones and tried to install it, same
thing again, and i have change RAM-places on the motherboard. Ok so i
have also borowed two 16 MB RAM´s from a friend and still the same
problem.
I have also disabled the cashememory both on the motherboard and also
the internal cashe memory in the processor, still have these signal 11
problem. :(

I should say that not all times i havent got the signal 11 failure,
instead the installation have just stopped, and nothing more happens.

The installations goes greate until the moment when the installation
detects my network adapter (a 3com-card), then after that i get som
realy wierd colors and ascii-text all over the screen.
It feels like i have tested everything, i have for exampel took out my
3dfx-card (orchid righteous 3D), but still have havent found any
solution, i thing it´s either the motherboard or the processor that is
corrupt....
Do you guys have any proposal ??

BTW
My system:

Motherboard: soyo 5va0 (vx430)
CPU: Intel 90 Mhz
graphic cirrus logic 5436 & orchid righteous 3D
RAM: 64 mb edo 60ns
harddrives: maxtor IDE 1200 mb and a IBM Deskstar5  4,3 GB (IDE)
networkadapter: 3com pci
soundcard: soundblaster 16
cd-burner: BTC cdr/rw (IDE)

sorry for my english :)
regards and thank´s in advance

This sounds more like a hardware problem. Can you borrow a CPU and memory of a friend and try again?

If win95 is unstable too, I would suspect hardware. I doubt that any of your cards would be the problem, but it has been known for graphics cards to screw things up.

ok i will try to borrow a processor and some RAM from a friend, but i dont think it could be the memory, because i have tested my own ie took out some ram moduls, and i dont think that all my memory moduls can be bad. I have noticed one more thing the latest two month, and that is in windows95 maybe tvo times in a hour, the system almost lock up, almost hangs for five to ten seconds everything is so slow, if a i play a game its like you have your most worst lagg in your whole life, then suddenly it´s like before....These can happen very often and somedays it could go several hours and everythings i okey..
