Unable to open /proc folder


i had some issue with the machine rebooting multiple times,
What happens is that the machine boots up and suddenly crashes and then boots up cleanly.
I was going through the log files during when this occurs. I came across /var/log/syslog which i guess logs messages before shutdown. It has following messages which i think are causing problem.



Could not open /proc/26694/stat: No such file or directory
Could not read the file /proc/26694/stat
Could not open /proc/31128/stat: No such file or directory
Could not read the file /proc/31128/stat



Does any one know what these messages are? And can it be a problem?

thank u.

I would be guessing those pids represent tasks that have just terminated - i.e the processes were there (very) recently, but not when the /proc/<pid>/stat file was checked. Not a problem - happens often.
