> Somtimes the system hang on displaying the first nvidia logo image.

This indicates that it could be a bios or hardware problem.  You
mention that you have the latest bios update, do you remember when the
problem started showing up?  Perhaps it's correlated to installing the
bios upgrade.

Also, do you have some version of Windows installed on your computer?
 If so, do you see the problem there?

On this computer I run also XP Home. Under this OS I had have no 
problems before I have updated the graphic driver. The problem now 
for XP is image resolution 1600x1200. To have a stable screen I have 
to change the resolution to 1280x1024. 
On installation RH from CD I did not have the screen freeze problem. 
It comes with updates and things are getting worse from update to
