Weird crash problem

I have a CentOS 4.5 running kernel 2.6.9-55.0.9 and I have a weird problem with it.

From time to time, it just crash. If I look at the server, all I see is a black screen and the num lock and scroll lock lights are flashing on the keyboard.

The server cannot be pinged or accessed remotely.

Any idea what is wrong?

After a search for syslog, I found the following:


Which one should I look in?

What files are in /var/log ? /var/log/messages perhaps ?
