If there is a pattern - ie always crashed at the same place or when you
do the same thing, then maybe a kernel upgrde will fix it.

If however the crashed seem to be random - it seems more like a hardware
issue. Try compiling the kernel a few times and if that is ok, it may be
software. There are also software to check memory like memtest86 which
is apt-gettable.
