I had one like that a couple of years ago and wasted a lot of time
swapping cards, power supplies, etc.  Swapping the motherboard
finally fixed it and I never did find out what was actually
wrong.  It never logged anything useful because it always appeared
to die instantly after running anywhere from a few hours to a
week depending on the activity. I'd recommend getting it out of
production as soon as possible.
