Possible overheating? Your power supply cannot handle the demand? Too many things running in the back (maybe not, especially with 2GB ram)? Keep an open mind. Also, provide more details. Maybe somebody else can help you here.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

Check your Event Viewer for error messages - particularly around the time of the freeze!

Also, the most common reason for this is corrupted video drivers - have you updated your lately? If not, use the WHQL certified ones for a while (because they're certified to work with Windows) - then, if all is stable, you can try some of the more advanced one's that are tuned for gaming.

I'm having problems with Call of Duty original. I would make sure like the previous post said to up date vidio drivers and also check for patches for the game at the activision site. Make sure you install the patches in the order they request. It maybe that you only need one.
