Linux on laptop reboots after a few mins of uptime

i seem to have a problem with random reboots.
After i installed an atmel driver for my wireless pcmcia and ACPI support
the OS just reboots after 4-5 mins of uptime, without any messages and without switching init level. It justs shuts and starts..
Any ideas? Would be really appreciated. Thanx in advance.
