hi all, new to site, wondered if you could help me??

i have new system as follows

Athlon 2800XP
AsRock K7S8X Motherboard
512mb RAM DDR 333
120gb hd
128mb Nvidia FX5200 Graphics


problem i have is when i play games, after about 30mins the PC makes a horrific noise and freezes, once the system is rebooted i get the microsoft 'serious error' message. i visit microsoft to post details of error, it reports that i have a CPU error.

any ideas on how to solve the problem, or is it a Hardware problem that i should send back to supplier

no other problems with PC, only when playing PC games

Cheers

Could be a video card or power source problem.
Try to install the latest video drivers.
What power source do you have ?

Heat.... probably.


Check the CPU temps while you are playing games.


Download Prime95 and run the Torture Test while monitoriong CPU temp.


Tell us about the CPU cooler and case ventilatiopn on your machine.

I am with Peter you m/b is shutting down the cpu and giving the alarm because you have reached the thermal limit. (Test it as Peter says).
