Random reboot question

Is it in any way likely that memory errors could lead an x86 system  
to reboot ?

In the past, I have worked with systems where this was possible (it  
trapped
unimplemented instructions to implement OS calls, one of which was  
reboot).

I can't think of an equivalent situation with the laptop (i.e. a  
modern kernel),
even if it is the kernel itself faulting, can you ?
