Windows 2000 keeps shutting down

  1. For a while now, my windows reboots itself without any warning and without me having been able to find a reason. Since it happened on average once a day, it was tolerable. But lately (After installing a USB-card) it went from being once a day, to every 2-3 hours.

    I have checked my RAM, it seems to be ok.
    Runinng a disk check doesn't work as it only gets to 80-90% of step 4/5 before the machine gets a BSOD.

    specs:
    CPU: AMD XP2600+
    Motherboard: ASUS A7N8X
    Ram Speed, size and #sticks: unsure of speed, 1.5GB, 3 sticks
    GPU: no idea, the graphics card is a Radeon 9550SE
    PSU (do not leave this out): Chieftec ATX 500W PSU For P4 ATX-12V 2.0 EPS 12V 12cm Fan Active PFC (Brand New)
    OS:Windows 2K Pro

    Attaching my latest three dumpfiles of today (All while I was switching around RAM-sticks to see if it would make a difference, and two from a couple of days ago, where the computer was running "normally" as it happened. Any help in diagnosing/fixing this problem will be greatly apriciated.

    EDIT: After turning off automatic reboot (Forgot that existed..doh).. It seems to be a BSOD problem.. error Message: *** Stop: 0x00000041 (0x00001000, 0x0000f871, 0x00000703, 0x0004d8b0) MUST_SUCCEED_POOL_EMPTY
