Hello,
Lately i've been getting some strange lockups while in desktop and browsing/doing nothing.
I played Unreal Tournament, Quake 3 with no issues on OpenGL/Glide.
The lockups occured when sitting on desktop with no 3d application opened.
This occured 2 times.

My system:
Voodoo 5 5500 PCI (PC Version)
Abit IP 35-E
C2D e6750 @ 3.2ghz (i'm 100% sure it's not from the o/c)
4x1gb ddr2 800mhz

I am waiting for your opinions... Is it a hardware fault or simply a driver issue? (using latest Amigamerlin + Glide XP)
Thank you very much.

It just happened again.
This time i was ingame (American McGee's Alice - the computer froze after a cutscene).
The computer freezes, and no longer accepts any input (ctrl+alt+del, alt+f4, etc).
Could it be an overheating issue ? o_O

LE:
I decided to remove the AmigaMerlin drivers, clean with DriverCleaner and then do a fresh install of the latest SFFT drivers.
The stability has improved (no crashes so far, even if performing the same steps to reproduce as before), but the performance dropped. (Quake 3 timedemo AmigaMerlin + MesaFX = 90fps compared to SFFT+MesaFX = 56fps)
At least it's now stable (or anyway more stable than before - i will post news if i encounter any new freezes)
