My machine gets shutdown on its own from time to time. I replaced the Power supply still it gets shutsdown. What I have notice is I have 2x1GB RAM stick. And one is 533 FSB and other is 633 FSB. If i remove one of the stick then everyting works fine. So could different FSB of RAM cause the issue of shutdown? Is it necessary to have same FSB for both the RAM stick?

Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

I think, acording to your thread, that the problem is the 633 RAM. Usually when you install RAM of diferent speed, the RAM run at the lowest speed, but sometimes this RAM show problems, in your case, shutdown the PC.
