Computer powers off after XP loading screen

December 22, 2010 at 15:44:21
Specs: Windows XP
I turn on my computer. Gets the Windows XP black loading screen (with the blue loading bar).
That fades out, then the computer physically powers off. The power button on the front of the computer does nothing, however if I turn off and on my Power Supply's switch, it starts up again.

I can boot into Safe Mode just fine. If I uninstall my Video Card drivers while in Safe Mode, then reboot, my computer boots just fine (but low resolution). I can then re-install my Video Card drivers, adjust settings (Resolution, Digital Vibrance and Gamma), reboot and it comes up fine again. My computer will then run for days until the next time I reboot it, and this all starts over again.

Any thoughts?

If its a separate graphics card, replace it?
