random lockups because of graphics card

atidvag refers to a driver so you may want to try reinstalling the drivers for the card.
I don't think it could have any thing to do with your broad band but answer me this question, is your modem connected with usb?
If so you installed a driver to make the modem work with usb and could have something to do with this. If you did try uninstalling the modem's usb driver with the cd that came with the modem. Then use the modem thru ethernet ( a more reliable way). Then reinstall the ati drivers.

my broadband isn't USB so i don't think that is the problem. i have already tried reinstalling my drivers many times and downloading the newer versions , to no effect...i have used Everest to see my computer temps, and my CPU temp is about 55 C .Could that be the problem? I have also scanned my comp for viruses and malware but found nothing.
*Sometimes when my comp restarts, i can see nothing but i can still hear the windows starting up and i can shut down the comp using the keyboard

What is the system temp and gpu temp (Everast will tell you) it could be that the video card is overheating check that its fan is working. Ckeck that your case fans are all running or you may need to add some but if the computer worked fine for a extended period before I doubt you would need to add any.
It really sounds to me like the video card is overheating so check them fans, but maybe the card is going bad.

the fans are working fine including my graphics card one..
there is only 3 temps displayed there
motherboard : 40 C
CPU :55 C
AUX :39 C
and i cant find AGP voltage
it only puts CPU core voltage which is 1.30 v

If this is what you did before then disregard.
Go into bios and list the temps and voltages reported there and we can compare them to what Everast reports.
The reason I say the readings everast reports don't make sense is because your vcore is 1.3 witch is way low should be 1.5 and your cpu temp at 55c is high so lets just see what bios lists them at because I suspect Everast is wrong.
Once we get this sorted out maybe we can find out just whats wrong.

(Maybe it is because i live in Malaysia...are the voltages different ?)

If the 55c cpu temp is a idle temp I recomend you remove the hs and clean it and the cpu with isopropyl alchol then reapply new thermal paste preferably artic silver5 and reinstall the hs.
This should lower the cpu temp to between 40c and 45c or lower. You can then set the cpu voltage (Vcore) to its specified voltage of 1.5.
Intel P4's will slow down when they sense a overheat problem to save the processor from damage so maybe somehow it lowers its voltage to decrease heat I am not sure how this works.
It seems you have multi problems but get the cpu temp lower first and maybe the rest will work out but you need to start here.
Only attempt the hs reinstall if you are comfortable working on computers if not take it to a shop.
