A bit more information would help us make some useful suggestions --

What kind of hardware? (lshw can be useful here)

What kind of crashes?
- system turns off abruptly
- system locks up from GUI but is still pingable
- system locks up and is unresponsive both locally and on the network
- gui shuts down and error messages spray all over the console
- ...?

What's your system configuration, in particular the video configuration
(in terms of both hardware and software)?

Any health alerts from your hardware? You mention checking temperature
and seeing nothing unusual, anything from the disk via SMART? If your
BIOS reports voltage levels, are they normal?

Any correlation between activity and crashes? Does it happen when you're
using the machine, or away from it for a few minutes? Does it matter
what you're doing?
