i assume you have installed the latest graphics card driver from ati.
also you need microsoft.net framework 2.0 installed before you install your ati driver.
if you have not got this you need to download it and uninstall your card driver before installing .net framework.

Take the side off the computer see if some air will keep it going, you could also try a air dryer on cool pointed at CPU or Graphics card. Also a underpowered PSU can have the above effect
