Default Radeon 9700 pro Crashes

Hi folks,

I recently installed a new graphics card into my machine, so I can delight in playing doom 3 and the likes. I got it set-up and it worked for a bit, but about 3 hours into my first go on doom 3 the whole system shut down. The screen went black for a bit first then I jusy had to turn it off. After this, it began happening as soon as the game reached the ID Software animation at the start. It also began shutting down occasionally when I opened videos very quicly after doing something else or tried to open alot of windows very quickly.

My specs are:

AMD Athlon 64 3200+ processor
1024 mb 3200 ddr ram

any ideas?
THanks peeps

I have the same problem with my Radeon card. My problem was overheating so I took the side off the case and put the tower in an open spot to get some cool air and the problem has decreased dramatically.
