Does rebooting solve the problem, and does it return if you leave the
computer standing again, is it consistent in how long it takes and does
it matter if you are working (does it only happen when the computer is
idle or only when it is running)?
Did you upgrade anything other then the kernel?
Do you still have a 2.4 kernel installed and does it run ok?
I am assuming you are using unstable or testing if you upgraded to 2.6.
