WHAT CAN BE A PROBLEM FROM COMPUTER FREEZING DUE TO 3D APPLICATIONS?

Question

I recently upgraded from Win200 to XP Home Edition. When running 3D applications (Games) the video or gameplay freezes for a sec then contiunes to play then freezes then continues etc. I have updated my BIOS, I have the lastest drivers for my Nvidia Geforce 3, I have updated the AGP drivers and running Direct X 9a. Don't know what to do from here.

Thanks.

Keith
