I thought that. Unfortunately I have no more information at the moment.

I've looked at that. Nothing that will show anything related to the crash.
Only the usual boot messages, if you suspict something like that. If it is
of any interest, I'll of course post it.
Since the machine suddenly resets, I don't think that any information
written to kern.log or somewhere else survives the ext3 journal rollback
or the ext2 fsck afterwards. Even output on tty8 won't help, since the
machine doesn't simply halt, it resets.

That's what I've done already.
Thank you for your kind answer!
