Check you hardware. I have almost the same problems with my station that
currently Linux/Windows. My problem is not so stable as yours, but looks
simular. I didn't see it in text mode, but in graphical mode it occurres 
time to
time. I believe that this is hardware problem. Check for hardware first, for
example if chip is overheated if card is properly inserted.

Did you see some delay after system is dead and before it reboots?
