Computer keeps freezing during pretty much all full screen games.

    Right now I am running Vista Home Premium with 2048mb system memory, and AMD
    Athlon 64X2 Dual-Core Processor4400+ with resolution set at 1680 x 1050.
    However recently whenever I play any full screen game, from Unreal Tournament
    2004 - Bejeweled 2 in full screen mode after a few minutes it crashes, with
    me not being able to do anything at all. This results in me having to hold
    down the power button until it turns off, and then restarting it. Any
    suggestions on how to fix this problem will be appreciated.

  2. There could be numerous of reasons why this happens, but in most cases it
    would have to do with the graphics driver.
    But it could also be something set wrong in bios or that your power supply
    is to weak, try out installing a newer graphics driver first.
    What are your other specs? Motherboard, graphicsboard etc...?

    You missed out the most important piece of information, Your graphics
    card!!! I think that maybe it's getting to hot and overheating, this
    might be caused by either a broken fan or collected dust in its heat
    sink.

    Maybe the power supply though, have you recently put in any new parts?
    Your power supply might not be able to handle the extra power
    consumption.

    If you have a 780i motherboard, chances are that is the problem. Need
    to flash the latest version of BIOS and the problem should go away.
