My first thought considering you can't even get into safe mode without a crash, is a component on the MB is failing. My 2nd thought would be the power supply is failing.

I have searched Similar Issue relating to mines many were Not resolved
It include person replacing old parts back to the computers and still freezes
Person replugging the parts and still crashes
Do something or not

However did notice that this issue mostly happens to Self Built Computers

Also crash are random and there no pattern to it

Sometimes mouse light turn off mostly it does not.
Sometimes it Freezes few min or hours that day
Sometimes it Freezes in days 2++ days

In Safe Mode
Only Freezes 1 Time

It now freeze before i even go Safe Mode and sometimes freezes before going to Windows XP Loading Bar Screen

I had a High CPU Temp Problem (which i fixed with some special thermal paste not artic sliver) on Early April 2012 did not have any crash or any freezing until Jan 13 2013 (I think first freezing)
Replaced Bad Memory 2 Bad Memory Ram which was checked by Sandra Lite
Even with 1 non corrupted (XEROX Memory Chip)
