Default Computer randomly reboots

Having issues with my computer randomly black screening then rebooting. Sometimes it happens once every few days other times, like today, its happened 3 times already since I started it up. Sometimes when it shuts down its starts beeping, long annoying beeps lasting about 3-4 seconds and I counted up to 10 times before killing the power. Its blue screen on me about 2 times total but once it froze when the blue screen came up. This is what came up.

Stop: 0x000000FC (0x001F03FF, 0x0A449963, 0xBA4D3B00, 0x00000000)

I've already run the windows memory diagnostics tool and it reported no errors. My new OS was installed a year ago (XP PRO 2002 SP3) maybe more and also a graphics card and power supply some time before that. Any ideas appreciated!

I would try running MemTest 86 on the system. while the Windows Memory Diagnostic is good, it isnt as good as Memtest.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

This could obviously be any number of things, but if you have the option, try changing the RAM, I've run across situations like this in the past and the majority of those repairs involved a faulty RAM stik.

Just a thought.
