Default Mouse and keyboard locking up with games

I just upgraded my computer a little with a bit more ram and a new video card. I bought a ATI Radeon 9600pro. When I play any game, anywhere from 2-20 minutes into it, my mouse and keyboard will lock up, but I can still see people move and talk in the game[s]. Only way to fix it is to restart manually and when I do that, right before it shuts down, the mouse works. [Must be in the games?]

I've tried using a house fan to blow into the computer at the card, incase it was overheating, but it didn't work. I've uninstalled the drivers [and used the driver cleaner in safemode], then reinstalled, didnt work. My old drivers are off of the computer.

My system is..

AMD Athlon XP 1800+ 1.53Ghz
512 DDR pc 3200 ram
430w power supply
ATI Radeon 9600Pro
..Hmm, don't think the hard drives would matter.
