Operating System Version:WinXP Pro SP1
Problem Application Name & Version: All games/software
Problem Hardware Make & Model: NVIDIA GeForce FX 5900 ULTRA
Error Messages:

Whenever i play any game on my computer, after about 2/10 mins my computer locks up, without warning, and a continuos 'beep' comes from my speakers, the task bar does not appear and it does not let me do anything, so i have to reset the computer.Angry
I have tried reinstalling my games, I have the most up to date drivers for my graphics card and as I am aware sound card.

This is a sample from my DXDIAG;
