Thanks again for your reply. I made a Memtest86 CD and ran the default test. After 30 iterations, it had 14 passes and 0 errors. Then I stopped the test. Thanks,

comment Dell Inspiron Running Debian shuts down with heavy usage
Sorry about my slow reply. I had installed memtest86 using "sudo apt-get install memtest86+" but could not find an executable after the installation ran. I was about to try your link but found the PC had shut down. I pressed the on button and got a continuous stream of rapid beeps, pitched the B above middle C or 494 Hz. The boot only got as far as where it showed the option for the F12 key and stopped there. It must be a hardware problem. I looked at the Del Inspiron beep codes but they do not appear to have anything for continuous beeps. Thanks,

Pyrit brought temp 1 and temp 2 (on psensor) up to 57C and 55C respectively. Then the fans revved up and brought the temps down to around 54C until pyrit ended. These are the highest temps I have seen on this PC bet they did not cause the system to freeze. There were no new messages in dmesg. Thanks,

The PSU appeared to be coming from the PSU which I replaced. I have not heard it since the PSU was replaced. I'm running pyrit now. Thanks,

Thank you for your reply. I added Arctic Silver to the CPU heat sink and cleaning the CPU and the sink. The fans are all running. I replaced the PSU with this . amazon.com/dp/B003CO04CU/?tag=stackoverfl08-20. The problem persists. I edited the original question to give the results of a memory test. Thanks,
