Have you overclock any thing ? not sure if you can overclock in mac but cant see why not. Maybe the power supply is dying and killing other hard ware with it.

Is it still under warranty ? Guessing its not since it is AGP.

Faulty RAM? Run an overnight test on them with memtest.

no its not really possible as far as i know to overclock a mac especially a power pc g4, and i know its not the power supply i have just replaced it because that was causing a totally different problem. also no it is not still under warranty. also the ram cards are fairly new.

also it has been working fine for 4 days now with no problem i have even left it on all night for 3 out of the 4 days.
