I guess if it comes to this I'll have to do the same. Anyone have any possible fixes before I spend any money?
A bad HD caused my computer to spontaneously reboot. Sometimes while running programs, other times at startup. It got more frequent and finally hosed some system files. When I got a new drive, I was still able to copy all of my files off of the bad drive before I turned it into a cool paperweight.

Yeah you're right. I don't really have any idea what to do. I've tried reformatting reinstalling Windows XP, and the problem persists, so does this mean it's a hardware problem? How can I figure out what the problem is?
After reading all of your comments...and suggestions offered...I'm just curious what you are going to spend this money on, since it seems that you haven't accepted any diagnosis that was offered...and you haven't done a clean install...and you haven't even narrowed "the problem".
A new system? And what happens if the new system ends up like the current one...what will be wrong then?

I am looking at the Event Viewer right now. None of the errors seem to correlate with the crashes, which is disappointing, but here they are:
Whenever you are seriously ready to take actions to find out what the problem is...someone will provide needed direction.
I'll start with...read the link provided on Event Viewer. Then (and only then) provide us with the last 4/5 errors noted in your EV.
If you can correlate an error in EV with a crash, that would be excellent.
This thread started with what you described as an obvious video driver problem. Well, maybe your description misled some of us and there's more wrong with this system than any video driver can be blamed for.

Thanks for the tip. Is there any software or anything that can tell me this? In the Device Manager, the only one coming up as not having a driver is the RAID controller. I'm going to look for this, but could that have this effect?
Sounds like a hardware incompatibility problem. Could be an ethernet card or some other hardware. Might fix it by updating drivers if you could find out which device it is.
