Check the hard drive for errors.

It goes through the error check process each time it crashes and i must restart it.
In each case errors are found and corrected in area 128 especially.
I was thinking it might be a hard drive problem. an in place install also might do the trick

If the hard drive check can't complete without finding errors, you have a bad hard drive.

Even if you do an in place install and it works, it won't work for long.

I would clone the drive to another hard drive while you still can. Then run a disk check.

It had a tremendous number of harddrive errors. which were fixed. The unit is now running good but how long the hard drive will last is questionable.
