Help with computer problem

By jameswill_nz_ ·
One of my computer has gone unstable and i cannot work out what is causing it. It runs ok normally, but when it runs games or resource demanding programs it has errors.

These errors include things such as at blue screens of death:

In games errors are like:
failure to decompress sprites
unhandled exception: access_violation (c0000005)

To begin with i thought it was a faultly ram stick. But then i found that these were common problems with nvidia video cards, i thought it might be conflicting drivers, so i updated my video card driver and no sucess. I have already reformated. Now i am thinking maybe an over heating problem.

My system is:
Gigabyte 7VAXP Ultra Motherboard
AMD Athlon XP2200+
512 vdata ddr ram
80gig WD harddrive

Plz Help Me

Wrong forum, more info needed

For a fast response to technical questions, please use the Technical Q&A section of the web site.

Which version of Windows are you running?

If Windows 98 or Me, reduce your RAM to between 256 and 384MB.

Make sure that you have the correct version of DirectX installed for the video driver.

I also recommend AGAINST having IE version 6 installed on W98 systems.
It can cause a number of instabilities.
