When it crashes, do you get a BSOD? If so, what is the error code? Does it just reboot on you?

Have you tried swapping out the PSU as it may be faulty.

Have you tried testing the RAM with Memtest86? If not, test it for a full 24hrs or until you produce errors. If you get no errors, RAM is not an issue.

Go to the Event Viewer under Admin Tools and see if there is any indication of what it was doing before it crashes there may be some process causing you a problem

Another possibility is the cPU may be overheating check the fan is still firmly attached. If loose ti may need to be reinstalled wit frsh thermal compound. Plenty fo threads on this and other forums on applying thermal compound. Generally very carefully.

Why does your post subject line read, Vista Error Help PLEASE HELP:

Your specs say you have WinXP Pro. What OS is installed?

If you performed an upgrade from Win XP Pro, they recommend you to backup all data on drive that you need and reformat your drive. Then a upgrade from a freshly format and installed previous version of windows works best.
