What are the last 20-30 lines of the alrtSID.log file? This will give you a clue if the DB is falling over because of itself or because of an outside influence. If the log file just stops, that is to say that everything's normal until it breaks, then there in an outside process killing the DB. If the log file reports errors, like ORA-00600 or ORA-07745, then you need to research those errors and see why Oracle is falling over.

Good Luck,
