Hi, Richard:

Well, the classic starting point is dmesg. That's a command you can 
execute. You'll want to pipe it through more (or less), and you may want 
to redirect it's output to a file for closer examination. 

Redhat has an interesting utility called sysreport that will write a very 
comprehensive report in /tmp.
