The only time that I've had the computer crash that bad, without being in 
realtime mode, was when I tried using [pix_dv] that I had transplanted 
into GridFlow. The kernel-based DV interface is very brittle.

The only other possibility I can think of, is defective RAM and defective 
CPU, but those wouldn't crash so predictably *and* instantly. I used to 
have a CPU that would crash whenever I was using it at 100% with SIMD code 
for more than approx 5 minutes if I was not using the following CPU fan:


but that's surely not the problem that you are experiencing.
