Conventional wisdom says that it's either an overheating problem or bad ram. However, it could very well be something else also. You should probably post your system specs in case theres a clue there.

Hard to say but sounds like a Windows problem, here are some basic troubleshooting procedures:
1. Update Windows on the Microsoft Update site.
2. Check/Update to latest Direct X version(9.0c).
3. Update your video card driver.
4. Check Device Manager for hardware conflicts.
5. Run Error-Checking and Defragmentation on main hard drive.
