First of all, sorry about talking my own problem in someone else thread. I didnt know.
Now, here is as detailed as i can get with what's going on. My computer either restarts or shuts down by its self randomly anytime it feels like it. No pattern really, but it chooses if it wants to restart or shutdown. Mostly it'll be when im playing a game, but others its just surfing the web, or even over night when im not on it and just a few programs, like AIM, are running. Here's some logs i found that i know the time of and when it happened.

Only copied 3, but i see about 20 of the same thing in my event log. Each with Event #1001. Now sure what any of this means. When it does choose to shutdown, the power doesnt go off. The fans are still running and my lights are still on,and i can still open my CD-ROM, but i hear my speakers go off, monitor blank, and it seems the OS just shutdown. So I have to flip the switch, unplug the computer, and it doesnt wanna start back up for 15-30min later. If i try before that, you can hear the fans start up, but nothing is happening.
I dont think it could be a heat problem. I have 3 case fans, 1 power fan, and 1 CPU fan. And sometimes i leave the side panel open. I havent cleaned it out physically yet, but it couldnt be that bad to cause this wierd problem. However, notice the bold :), it all started doing this when I bought my new graphics card: ATI Radeon 9600SE 128mb. Im thinking it could be pumping out too much power, but i have a 450 power supply. Maybe it overheats? but i dont think it could with 5 fans in there. Ive tried uninstalling/reinstalling the driver many times for it.
Any help would be appreciated. Im running XP Pro, Duron 850mhz, 256 SDRAM, and my graphics card (ATI RAdeon 9600SE 128mb)
