Don't forget to try a CMOS reset. Your motherboard
manual will cover how that is done.
I've seen a few cases where a Asus P2B
or P3B was having strange problems detecting drives
or booting up, and there was better behaviour
after a CMOS reset.
You also mentioned that you have a wireless
card. If that is being supported by ndiswrapper,
it's the end of the story. That is a flaky
driver. The developer doesn't know how
to include kernel stack dump capture code
(the answer I got was: "that would require
reading"), and so when there is a crash with
ndiswrapper module, you will just get a freeze.
The lock ups from ndiswrapper go back
many versions - the lack of useful
diagnostics is helping to perpetuate this
