One day , I find that I can't telnet , ftp to the computer because of the linux can;t fork(), so I use the computer locally, I find that, It can't display anything
So, I restart the computer

Have you run memtest on the system? It is probably some sort of hardware problem, but you can also boot off of a LiveCD and see if it's still unstable. It could be a sign of something bad on your motherboard/CPU if a LiveCD is unstable.
