Machine Dead

This started happening to me a while ago. No logs, no
sign that anything was amiss, just BANG, the machine
blew up. I came to the conclusion that it was a
hardware thing. I tried a few things including
changing the VGA card, changing the network card,
changing the SCSI card etc., it was still happening. I
eventually tracked it down to some dodgy RAM, acquired
some more (SysAdmin privileges, the users never
noticed ;), and all has been well ever since. 

Just my 2 Cents

The Romans didn't build a great empire by organising meetings. They did it by killing anyone that got in their way.
