Game crashes & Looping sound

on 3d games such as starcraft, diablo 2, heroes of newerth, and starcraft 2 my game will periodically crash causing a system freeze and looping sound.

This has started recently, and both reformatting and updating the graphics drivers have done nothing for me.

specs:

amd 3800+
asus m2n-e bios "asus m2-e ACPI Bios revision 0205"
nvidia 7600 GT 256mb bios "v.5.73.22.19.00" driver 6.14.12.5896
1024 mb DDR2

any help would be much appreciated as I can't use this computer for any games at the moment.

  1. Run memtest for ~5 passes and see if it turn up any errors, if it does your memory is going bad.
