it looks like a RAM issue. Could you run memtest86+ from the GRUB boot menu? –  Lekensteyn Dec 2 '11 at 22:34
ram issue?i'm runing it right now...what should i be looking for? –  Mihai Dec 2 '11 at 22:37
If it reports a lot errors, you need to replace your RAM. –  Lekensteyn Dec 2 '11 at 22:55
Or [if it finds errors] at least take the current RAM out, give it a blow, re-seat it and test it again. I should warn you that it can sometimes take hours of memtesting to show up a fault. Leave it going as long as you can (eg overnight would be best) –  Oli Dec 2 '11 at 22:59
