A system crash with no clue about the reasons is normal on some mainboards.

I would go check your hardware

  • memtest
  • ook inside the case for piling dust on coolers
  • and check if you do not have bad capacitors (bulged)

    Could you give more details? I’ve got servers that become completely unresponsive. I plug in a keyboard and monitor, and zip – the screen’s live, but nothing works, and I have to power cycle. Is it something like that, or did it crash by itself?


  • what sort of hardware was this? does it have lights out management port, like IPMI, that might provide a hardware event log? does it have ECC memory?
