I am having problems with running games on Win XP. I just built a new computer. The specs are:

Athlon XP 1800+
Geforce4 Ti4200
40 Gig HD 7200rpm
SoundBlaster Audigy gamer sound card
Motherboard with a K133 chipset

I installed Win XP pro without a hitch. Then i installed some games. All of the games freeze after about 4-10 minutes of gameplay. I dont know whats wrong. It does not freeze ever in normal windows mode, only in games. When it freezes i have to restart and try again. I installed all the latest drivers for all my components and win Xp. The problem is aggravating me. If i do not solve this soon i will downgrade back to Win 2000 pro.
Any advice?

I wonder if anyone can help... I'm trying to install my old copy of Tribes and after I push "Install" on the autoplay screen, nothing happens... is it just not compatible with XP?

Does your CPU fan work? whats the temp of the CPU while playing games. its probably overheating.
