This is probably some type of strange hardware problem.  Can we assume
that you haven't installed new software (including a new kernel) or
new hardware?  You also haven't changed your BIOS settings?  Then I'd
guess memory first.  Remove 32 MB of memory and see if it continues.
If it does, then replace those 32 MB with the other 32 MB, etc.
