Randomly Restarting Computer

Windows 98 usually doesn't just restart like that, it usually throws up a blue screen forcing YOU to restart it

I believe I may have fixed it. Anyone ever heard of a trojan horse caled Clicker.GK?
That didn't fix it. It still randomly reboots but now it's giving me 3 beeps although I am confused as to what it means. I'm taking out my motherboard's manual now. I'll inform you later once I figured out what 3 beeps means.
News Update, Fat load of good that did. Manual says "Video Card not found or Video Card Memory Bad"
News update, It randomly restarts when it enters the OS and my BIOS screen is distorted by green funky things like
|AO(Has ' ontop of the O) F3/4 (F 3/4).
News update, Computer BIOS is saying "No Ram".
News Update, I found out 1 stick of ram was PC 100 I set bios to run ram at PC-100 speed. Waiting to see if it fixed the issue.
News Update, It somewhat fixed the issue. Windows runs more stably but now I'm getting a blue FLASH before a random reboot (Yes they still happen. ugghh)

Do you have a known stick of good memory that your computer likes to swap it out with to see if it runs any better?

Nope. Still likes to randomly restart and die on me. It's definitely not the ram as far as I know.
Ok. I managed to get it to work stabily. I was suprised to find that I swapped out my most reliable brand of ram that is branded and has worked for a long time was the ram that caused the problem. (Or so it appears). My computer has stopped randomly restarting for now but I'm getting a suspisscion that it won't be the end of this problem.
Can a stick of ram just fry itself by being in a computer and just being used normally?
Nope, Problem still occurs. I've tried with ALL my ram, working pulls from computers etc. Problem still occurs. I believe the source is an even bigger underlying problem.

What video card do you have? Is it a new card or have you updated drivers lately?
