This question was answered on February 6, 2003. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

I opened your profile and saw that you are using AMD processors I had the same trouble with my friends AMD, took me a while to figure it out The problem is with the cooling of the cpu, or rather, the lack thereof Since games take up much processing power (as do pictures), your cpu overheats causing either choppiness or a complete system shutdown Make sure you have a fan on your Processor and that it is on tight, also make sure that there is plenty of ventelation, add more fans if not.

Hope this helps.
