i was playing a little warcraft 3 today, but in the middle of the game, everything just locks up, and then the screen flickers twice and i see myself back in the game. this happened every 5 minutes or so, really annoying, and its never happened to me before.
my video card is radeon 9200

any suggestions?

First, check to make sure that your computer is virus and spyware free. I'd suggest rebooting into safe mode and run the scans.

The other thing that it could be is that it is overheating. If you have a desktop, open the side of the computer and blow it out with some compressed air and maybe place a fan so that it blows air into your computer. If you have a laptop, try to elevate it from the surface to get some airflow under it.
