Lots - mostly hardware related.

even if swap memory is consumed partially

Sounds like a red-herring - unless its only ever happenning at a certain amount of swap usage. Replace your existing swap (pasrtition or file) with a new swap file - if problem still occurs then its probably not to do with the swap / disk.

I would suggest an extensive hard drive test. If you wish to delve even further into troubleshooting this you could redirect output to a serial console and watch what happens when the server reboots (google is your friend here).
