check the dmesg and message log, what is your hardware specification?
Did you makesure whether this problem cause due to hardware insufficient or fault?

The log files are usually in /var/log - without any other hint you have to wade through most of the logs to see which are dubious. Usually a system-admin knows what type of actions have primary focus on a server, and tart investigate for that specific service type.
