Sirsin, Are you a Gamer?
Have you done a Defrag?
Have you done a Disk Cleanup?
Have you checked your Hard Drive?
The last link I gave you tells you how to check the hard drive for bad sectors. Please take the time to do that.
Have you gotten all of your Driver Updates?
Does your hard drive still 'thrash' when this occurs? Do you have your pagefile set manually or are you letting Windows manage it? If you are letting Windows manage it, I suggest you set it manually (set max and min to 1.5 - 2.0 times the amount of your physical RAM)
Also, Open up Task Manager and see if there is a process hogging the resources. E.g. Look at Mem Usage as well as CPU Time (View...Select columns...CPU Time)
What errors are you getting in your logs, e.g. open Event Viewer and take a look at the logs, when these issues occur?
Lastly, have you tried updating/reinstalling the video driver?
Go to this site and run the scan. It is a Microsoft scan and I have had good results by sending members there.
Run the full Scanhttp://onecare.live.com/site/en-us/default.htm
Next go to this site and watch the Video. It will show you about 14 things that you can stop running on your systemhttp://www.pcnineoneone.com/training_video...eed_video1.html
