A couple things to ALWAYS enable on your SQL Server

Trace flag 1222 – This little bugger will record deadlock information for you. A deadlock can occur when two transactions are trying to use the others’ resources and SQL Server can’t decide which transaction to run first. Enable it by either issuing the command DBCC TRACEON (1222,-1) or inside SQL Server Configuration Manager, select the SQL Server instance and add -T1222 to the startup parameters. 

Torn page detection – Torn page detection will allow you to see if any pages in your databases are corrupt. This is an indication of a physical hardware issue either on your hard drives or your disk controllers.
