I had similar spontaneous reboots that were down to the power supply.
lm-sensors had been indication a 5V of about 4.4V. The new supply gets
about 4.6V and it's rock solid.
If that's not the problem, have you fiddled with the BIOS RAM timings? I
did once and since it booted fine thought everything was OK. It took me
about a month to realize that was the reason why I couldn't recompile
the kernel without gcc crashing.
