Default comp freeze and reboot

Hi there,

I have a problem when playing games. my computer randomly freezes and reboots.

it can happen quickly or not happen at all for a while before it occurs. When it happens the sound which is being played at the time repeats the last second or so over and over. then the computer either continues or reboots.

I have tried reinstalling the graphics and sound drivers, and running memtest.

Windows diagnostic thingy suggested that the graphics card is getting stuck in a loop but i dont know how to test that.

My Mobo has onboard graphics and sound but cant seam to diable them in the bios.

athlon 64 3000
512mb ram *1gb stick away being fixed atm*
gigabyte geforce 6600 GT 128mb (pci-e)
Creative soundblaster Audigy

can send a mini dump file if asked (dont know how to read them so cant post on here)

can you check the manual for the motherboard and see if there is a jumper to enable/disable integrated graphics?
