Personal experience here, so it may or may not apply to you: Errors like
what you're describing occur to me on my Athlon system during times of
high CPU load and inadequate cooling. If you've got an Athlon, power
down the system, blow out all the fans, and maybe even reseat the fan
(with new thermal grease if you use it).

Also helps to just do a general cleaup while you can.

Hope this helps!
