Default Problem with Quake III engine games

Just wondering if anybody could help me out on this problem of mine. Ever since I got my ATI Radeon 9800 Pro it works absolutely perfectly EXCEPT for QUAKE III Engine games (Call of Duty, Jedi Academy, etc). The same thing always happens. Itll start up, maybe even work for a few seconds but it always locks up and goes to this weird purple error screen that reminds of the old school "Blue Screen of Death" from my Win95 days. Ive gotten the new drivers and the same thing happens. Like I said, it works perfectly in all other games except those with the QUAKE III Engine. Anybpdy heard of this problem?

My system: Amd 1.2 Ghz (Dont laugh at me)
642 Megs of RAM (Again, no laughing)
A7v-133 MoBo
Ati Radeon 9800 Pro
Windows XP Professional
