Most likely, this is some kind of hardware failure. I have fixed many

damaged, it can be anything..
Well, yes, it can be a hardware failure, but then it's a rather
strange coincidence that the crashes started happening immediately
after upgrading to F13 (from F10). Besides, even if it's a hardware
failure, it'd be nice to know which one is the faulty part...
RE overheated chipset: the north bridge (I _think_ it is the north
bridge: an Intel P965) does feel very hot.
