Question 9800 power problem

Randomly in Linux, and also when I am trying to run games at 1600x1200 in Windows, my computer turns itself off and makes a beep/squeaking sound. This sound stops when I unplug my video cable.

What should I check>? I need plans quick! My comp is at my school and I need to fix it so I can get updates!

thanks

Al

yeah, it runs fine at lower setting-but in linux it randomly happens, and this shoudln't be happening anyways.. I should be able to run games and apps in 1600x1200 on a Sapphire Radeon 9800.
