Asus T91MT owners -- does this ever happen to you?

So I'm really happy with my T91MT. 95% of the time, it runs great. And then, every once in a while, it crashes, and the screen looks like the attached image. The only thing that fixes it is a re-boot. Sometimes it runs for days with no issue, and then crashes. Sometimes it crashes 10 minutes after booting up. I have not been able to find any pattern to this issue. I don't do anything really CPU-intensive on it -- mainly web surfing and reading the NYT in the Adobe Air reader. I have all of the bloatware uninstalled, Aero turned off, etc.

So does this happen to anyone else and have you found anything that minimizes the issue? If it doesn't happen to anyone else, I wonder if it would be worth having it replaced or repaired under warranty. It's just such a hit or miss issue, I don't know if a repairman would be able to replicate it to debug. Plus, I really don't want a replacement as I don't want to go through all the hassle of uninstalling the bloatware, etc.

Any thoughts / help appreciated. Thanks!

I almost always use it on battery as well. Today I noticed it happened twice in a row as I was disconnecting the power cable, but other times, it has crashed right in the middle of an hours-long session on battery.

I got advice from another forum that it might be the RAM chip -- I had upgraded to a 2 Gb chip, and it seems the brand of chip can make a difference. So I've downgraded back to the original 1 Gb chip and we'll see how it goes. I use it for such easy tasks, maybe 1 Gb will be sufficient after all.

Turns out it has something to do with the Super Hybrid Engine (SHE) conflicting with some brands of RAM chip. I re-installed my 2 Gb chip and uninstalled the SHE and now my little guy is now running perfectly
