Default Changing IRQ

I've been having random restarts (who the crap hasn't been?)

I look in my system info utility, and my AGP card, firewire controller, and my wireless card use IRQ16, my TV card and integrated NIC use up IRQ 18.

Could these conflicts be causing my system unstability? My CPU is around 29C whenever this happens. Also, could this be due to the fact that I'm running on a POS Celeron 2.6?

If this could be due to the IRQ settings, is there any way to change the IRQ channels for the devices?

This is pissing me off. I'm about ready to get a new mobo and processor.

On the hardware side: Could be the signs of a failing PSU. Could be signs of faulty system RAM. Check both.
