    I'm not sure why, but my computer will either completely freeze and lock up, or just restart altogether when I'm playing certain games. These games are pretty new, such as Heroes of Might and Magic 5, Call of Duty 2, and Battle for Middle Earth 2. I suspect my video card, because its pretty old by today's standards. But I still have no idea why... any ideas?

    EDIT: I suppose some speccys would help XD

    OS: Windows XP Professional w/ Service Pack 2
    Video Card: Sapphire Radeon 9600 Atlantis with 256MB cache
    Processor: AMD Athelon 64 Processor 3200+, MMX, 3Dnow, ~2.0ghz
    RAM: 1024MB of PC3200

    I know some games that have had restart issues. Perhaps a patch for those games will help. As far as the freezing, check your cooling on the video card. Overheating can cause them to lock up.
