O.k so I re installed the OS and the panics seems to stop so far at least.
I notice after installation the open source driver go installed I let the computer ON for a while and no panic occurred.

After few hours I went adhead and installed the proprietory driver and sure panic started to occur so I went back to the open source and no problem has occurred since. I wanted to try to enable the COMPIZ fancy effects but the graphic card is not powerfull enough for that I dont think.

I wanted to re install anyway because I wanted to modify my partition tables and I guess I found a good excuse for it.

Thank you all who replied to this thread

put the output of lsmod and the content of Xorg.0.log here.
module nvidiafb is necessary or making conflict with nouveau? Just a guess (nouveau ist NOT nvidia but a re-engineered nvidia).
google say mint had few issues with it

The Temp hasnt changed that much neither

I will appreciate all advice.
Most civilian computer parts have a design max operating of 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
40 degrees Celsius is 104 degrees Fahrenheit.
I used to tell my clients to keep the ambient temp well below 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

You say "from parts that were laying around". Could be one or more became heat sensitive (and left laying about) and now fails well below the 120 design. I had lots of those before the voltage was dropped from 12 to 3.5 for most parts.

Test: Put computer in front of fan blowing cold air and see what happens. Longer time to failure proves the point.
