My computer locked up on me. It's been giving me some problems and I have had a lot of programs that freeze and my system overall is slow. The whole system locked up and I tried every key I could. When I went try to reboot I get the following:

Error 18: Selected cylinder exceed maximum supported by BIOS.

I had this once before and I used Knoppix and ran reiserfsk /dev/hda* on all my partitions. No luck.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Run memtest86 on it? Sounds like either your hard disk or RAM is dying.

It'll be on that Knoppix CD.
