It's basically locking hard after about 5-10 minutes every time I use it, and sometimes I cannot even log in. I guess I don't know what to think.

If you have a kernel.good around boot that, and try fiddling

NVIDIA AGP driver may be a good idea too).

I have had a few really odd bug reports, but none that match this type
of behaviour.
