Default *SOLVED* Pc freezes while playing on XP. On Vista not!

Hi guys. I got Asus m2n-e sli MB and AMD 64 x2 5000+ (2.6ghz) CPU, MAXTOR 250gb hdd (if nacessary i can tell model, i dont remember now) and when im playing games (mostly Live for speed) on Windows XP Home edition x32bit (i got dual boot xp and vista) my pc freezes (black screen) and i must turn off and turn back on (reset doesnt work), but on Vista i can play like 10days non-stop. Maybe someone know how to solve that? Maybe its becourse of 32bit OS? Anyways, thanks for reading, hope to get some help outta you .

Hmmm don't hear that line (your title) everyday.

Do a driver reinstall. If one OS is crashing but not the other it usually means it's a driver problem.

VGA, onboard/card sound, network (wireless and wired) and uninstall any harddrive software you may be using.
