Default FreeBSD 7.0 hanging up randomly

My freebsd 7.0 system keeps hanging up sometimes, and the computer becomes absolutely unresponsive( as in *nothing* works). Even the speakers emit garbage. The system does not even restart and there is no kernel dump(I did set all the dump parameters). I have to do a forced shutdown and I can't seem to pick up any evidence as to why the crash happened. I thought that this might be a bug of some sort in the release CD, so I synced with the latest stable tree and recompiled and it happened again today. It's not like it happens very often but it does happen. My hardware is the Dell Vostro 1400 laptop. The following is my make.conf:-

CFLAGS= -O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe
CXXFLAGS+= -fconserve-space
# added by use.perl 2008-06-29 04:07:27


Also I had to patch my kernel to get my NIC working.

What could be the source of this problem?(I know it's very vague but this is excatly what it is)
Is there anyone out there with a similar problem?
