It sounds like a hardware or driver issue. First I'd check the
firmware on the motherboard+any controllers is the latest version,
then check the device drivers make sure they're the latest (you may
have to compile custom kernel for that).

Do the usual things, make sure the machine isn't running too hot, the
memory is ok (use www.memtest86.com)

Good luck.
