What do you have for a boot statement ?

Maybe Output Interpreter will help to check crash ouputs -> https://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/Support/OutputInterp... (login required).

In the crash outputs should be more information what was the cause. Also good idea is an upgarde your IOS as is almost ancient :)
