In dire need of a Geek to save my sanity..... when I have been playing video files for a short time the mouse pointer 'stutters' when moving across the screen, then seconds later the machine emits a high-pitched continuous whine and hangs up. This also happens when playing audio files, but only after a much longer time.

Sorry Gerryf, domestic crisis, installed latest sound and video drivers, seems to be worse if anything. Recalled a similar problem when I bought the machine which was fixed by a few alterations to the bios settings which I obtained from the vendor (Mesh). However they no longer reply to my e-mails, presumably cos my warranty's up. Do hope you'll be able to point me in the right direction.
Muchas Gracias
