After many days of running smooth, centos is now getting hanged.

When i change the tty2 and then back to the tty that is running x server, i see a black screen with error message on top in yellow color.

[code]fb: conflicting fb hw usage inteldrmff vs EFI VGA -removing generic driver[/code]

I have to then switch to tty2 and reboot.

This is happening more frequently now. Is there any way to resolve this?

Looks like an issue with the graphics driver. Have you installed any drivers or are you using the original configuration? Please [url=http://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=28723&forum=54]provide more information about your system[/url] by running "./getinfo.sh driver" and showing us the output file.
