Several months ago my Ubuntu 10.04 started to freeze some minutes after booting. I didn't reboot, just get stuck (mouse, keyboard, etc.)
One day it didn't boot at all - ut was dead. I tested the power supply and it was broken, so I changed it (for a more powerful one) and both problems are gone. Since 3 weeks, the PC is working fine. It didn't freezes anymore.
- Can the power supply affect the OS in this way? May it because of a leak of current?
