You reformatted and it's still doing that? Odd. I'm not sure what's going on.

be sure its fully updated from microsoft or try installing it with another CD, it could be a corrupt data file on the CD that didnt install write or try repairing with another install disk or do a scan disk or RUN chkdsk to see if u have a corrupt data file on your hard drive.

Thats happened to me numerous times on an 866mhz gateway, I finally figured out that leaving it on for a long time or playing high quality games, would cause the machine to overheat. It would then restart and say the same thing yours says, about the .dmp file. I took the top off of the tower and it stayed on for longer, but still shut off, I'm not entirely sure but I think more ram will do the trick. What kind of machine is it?
