Default Multiple Startup Crashes

Alright, I have 3 XP installations on my PC ( incase one dies productivity isnt hit too hard ). Well, I can barely get to the boot menu anymore, the computer turns itself off, crashes, and all sorts of other strange things. Sometimes when windows' loading screen does show up, the PC crashes anyway. Finally, after 30 - 40 attempts (no lie) i can get into windows and get to work. However in this case applications are crashing or the computer decides to turn itself off sporadically. ( i am posting this from my laptop )

It does this on all of the 3 XP installations, and in safe mode too. I have swapped out the ram with a spare set, and this still happens.

help :'(

All the same edition or Home, Pro, and MCE? Video drivers, high system temps, and a few other things can see Windows stall.
