this happens often for some reason

any pointers on how to debug it? I am running it on salvaged P4 hardware, just as a testbed. Same hardware seems to be able to run winXP for weeks on end but arch seems to freeze at least 3-4 times/day. So ... I am trying to start figuring out what's causing the freezes, this is the first thing that came up.
PS the error ends there, from sshing into the machine I can exit the error with ctrl+c but unless I do the terminal just seems to stop after the 00000s
Could definitely be hardware related. Running Memtest wouldn't be a bad idea to start...
