The thing is awesome, but not so awesome when it crashes!

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO
Just confirming:
Calibre version is 0.8.3 Not that thing in the repository.

Repeated crashes on start (no device connected) might indicate bad hardware.
I would suggest running Memtest 86+ from the (GRUB) Boot menu (or Live CD) for 1 or mor PASSes (many tests in a PASS)

Calibre can be heavy on the Memory use.
Lint in fans and fins is another common issue.
