Computer clicks then freezes then shuts off

I have windows xp and it has Sp2 installed with 420 watt Ps, 2.4 ghz pentium 4 processor  its a custom computer which ive had for over a year and when i plug it into my wall, someitmes i hear 2 clicks then it freezes and the power just shuts off, Nothing is on. It does this at different points too, sometimes it clicks then freezes and turns off before i login, or wihle im connecting to the internet. it even does it when im playing games. Well when i plug it into a plug in on the other wall, it clicks twice then freezes then shuts off even on that wall. i've plugged it into other electrical outlets and it does it there too. I know i have enough power at my house. Im not sure what is the problem is i think it might be the PS or MB. thank you

I don't thin it's the M/B

It might be the PSU, but if you started having these problems after upgrading to SP2, it's is probably a compatibity issue.
You can check by taking another HDD and perform a clean installation on it, and see if the resets continues.
My guess, that if the system goes thorough the installation process without a problem, the it's a SP2 compatibility issue.

Then you can do one of the following:

either uninstall SP2, then update your device drivers and install SP2 again, or
reinstall the whole thing from the beginning....

Good luck,

If you hear it clicking it might well be the hard drive that's going dead. Like zvitam said, try with another disk.

I found This in App. log which showed up a couple times, but i dont think thats important

Windows saved user HOME-GV9EH6ORS1\broken feather registry while an application or service was still using the registry during log off. The memory used by the user's registry has not been freed. The registry will be unloaded when it is no longer in use.

 This is often caused by services running as a user account, try configuring the services to run in either the LocalService or NetworkService account.

And i found this in system log,

The TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper service depends on the NetBT service which failed to start because of the following error:
The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.

Let me know if you want the whole thing
