i installled suse 10  one month ago, but recently It is always  hang. no matter what i was doing. it was hang when i was opening new website , reading website, typing command or etc.   I tried Ctrl+Alt +Esc or Ctrl+Alt +Fn , sometime they didnot work at all---- no respond. i am fair new in Linux, most of time I just do very basic operation in Linux. I cannot understand why it is always hang and someone tell me Linux is never dead. every time i had to push reset.

This implies a hardware probelm to me. First port of call would be memtest:

It doesn't take that long, and testing memeory is a good idea.

>my winxp is never hang in the situation

Windows operating systems tend to be a bit 'sloppy' in the way they handle errors. The particular situation that you have with everything freezing implies a faily serious problem.

Worth looking to see if you have any 'core' files or '.core' files in your root directory:

ls -al /

Next area worth looking is in the log files for error messages, and any clue to the failure reason. These files are normally in /var/log (or equivalent).

dmesg | more

might be worth a look for errors as well.
