It could very well be a hardware problem. One of the prime suspects to
test is memory. Try memtest86 to probe for b0rken memory. OTOH, if
you've been overclocking the machine, that could also lead to
problems. Change things like bus speed and memory timings to the default
values if you've changed them.
