Are you using ps2 or usb mouse and keyboard?

Is the bios up to date?

What is a pre-ps2 keyboard?  ps2 keyboards have a small round 6 pin
connector just like ps2 mice.  Old AT keyboards had a 5 pin din
connector that was quite a bit larger.  Does anyone still use those?

Is usb legacy support enabled in the bios? (if you don't use a usb
keyboard, try turning it off).

Which window manager are you running?  For a while I saw a lot of
lockups when I tried to run firefox under kde.  Use anything other than
kde, and crashes/lockups went away.  That was a few months ago though.
Seems better now.
