	As everyone, including me, suspected mine was a hardware problem. Although
I had checked it previously, I didn't check closely enough. The CPU fan was
still spinning, but the plastic tab on the CPU socket that it engaged had
cracked off, allowing a angular gap to form between the CPU and the heat

	After I fixed that, the machine went back to being as reliable as usual.

	95% chance it's a heat or memory problem. Triple check everything heat
related. Go through the BIOS and put everything to safe settings. Maybe even
swap out the memory or remove half of it, test, then swap halves.
