Vmware Infrastructure Restarts Host unexpectedly almost every other day

Almost every day my vmware server host restarts unexpectedly.    Windows event log gives me event id: 6008.  Its a power edge 2950 with 16gb ram, Raid5 setup for vmware disks, mirrored drives for OS, Windows 2003 Standard x64. two 4 core xeon processors at 2.33ghz.

Its been giving me trouble for months and i've isolated it to vmware as I had another vmware server and moved all the vmware disks to this new server.  Same problem is occuring.  I know its not windows updates as i checked carefully on my WSUS and server logs.  I have a couple other physical servers in this domain and none of them have this issue. I have been keeping a log of all the start up times which i've listed below.  I was running vmware server 1 for about 2 years and this issue never occured.  Any help would be much appreciated.
