You might want to check if your power cables are all firmly and
properly connected, both those on the outside and inside.
You can also try running from a live-cd, or another harddisk with
another installation and see if the problem still occurs, if it does,
you know it's a hardware problem and not software...
Replace the power supply, maybe it's broken..
My experience is that checking for hardware problems before software
problems is the fastest way to fix something like this (example: a few
weeks back I spent a hour getting my floppy drive to work only to
discover the power cable wasn't connected, DUH!)
