Gateway has stopped shipping one of its latest high-performance PCs while it investigates a bug in the motherboard that is causing the computers to freeze.
The problem is believed to affect only Gateway's Select line of PCs running the 1Ghz Athlon processors - codenamed Thunderbird - which were launched last month.
According to reports, the problem has so far only been encountered in Gateway's labs, but the company has suspended delivery of the systems until 10 July while investigations are being made.
A spokeswoman for AMD said the company had been advised of a "motherboard manufacturing issue" and that the problem was not related to the Athlon processor or AMD's 750 chipset.
Gateway makes its own motherboards for its PCs, on which the system's memory, microprocessor and Bios are housed.
There have been no reports of any affected customers in either the US or Europe.
Gateway was unable to comment on the problem.
