In order to troubleshoot this - you'll first need to determine if this
is or is not a hardware issue. Is the cpu shutting down because of
If not, which kernel can you use without problem? Then compare the boot

kernel may fail to load a module. Often you'll find that some kernels
will work better with your system than others. --------gary
