I got the machine all up and running, and installed all of the programs that I wanted on the machine. Among those was Steam, with Half Life 2 Episode 1 and other games. While running that game at 1280 by 1024 pixels, I seem to have a problem where my computer crashes after running the game for a few minutes. It runs the same audio loop over and over (kind of like a broken record), and then after a few minutes my computer beeps.
Also, Windows crashes when I try to run the game from the start menu without going into Steam first. The computer is slightly responsive, but when I open the start menu, the icons don't highlight, and nothing opens or closes. Eventually I have to push the power button to shut it off.
