Reformatted and still crashing

  madstad 09:51 17 Oct 06

i have a compaq presario s4500uk

mobo - Asus A7N8X-LA
HDD - ST3120022A - 112GB
Mem - 1GB DDR SDRAM (mem test = 100% pass)
Video - Nvidia 6200 256MB AGP

Machine kept locking up when playing COD:UO so reinstalled the game but still same afterwards. So ran avg virus scan with no reported problems and also ad-aware with no infections.

ran a memory tester which passed at 100% so done a reformat but even during installation it locked up and continues to do so now particularly if i run a fresh program.

any ideas plz?
