You are not overclocking your CPU by any chance?

Check all Drivers are up to date, espically Video Card and Sound. If that still has not fixed the problem the try and complete format and intsall Windows ME again.

Has your computer always been like this?

maybe you need a bigger power supply.

I agree with eccomputers, what PSU do you have? Fitting a more powerful PSU will ease the strain of your components such as the CPU and graphics card.

I had a simular problem, the fault with mine was dodgy ram. Changed the ram and it was fine
