Hi, I have had (and still do have) similar problems.
Microsoft Knoledge base has help with this if you have Windows 2000 and a AGP card. Might help with XP as well, do a search at the windows website.

It can be down to a number of things.
But mainly faulty hardware or overheating hardware is what I have found to caurse this problem.

You could check each peice of hardware, if you have the technical knowhow to do this. Or try underclocking or using better cooling, yet again, if you know how.

Do you have any hardware monitor software? This would be a good place to start. Use the temperature and voltage monitor options in the software (if you have none, try mother board monitor [http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file_description/0,fid,7309,tk,GUT12,00.asp] ) and record the details as you play a game.
This should detect any spikes ect.

If nothing shows up, then it could be faulty/incompatible pci cards, graphics card, ram, CPU, Motherboard...

Underclocking my CPU solved my proble. But I think its down to my ram not being able to run at full speed. Huh?
