Sounds like a kernel panic of some kind, either hook up a serial
console to the system and watch the console from another
machine or switch back to a normal terminal (CTRL+ALT+<F1>) and
plug it in and see what you get.

Serial console is best as you can easily copy/paste the crash
output.

You could also try kdump -
