Possible causes include a failing PSU, bad memory including the GPU, overheating or driver issues.
I'm getting lockups all the time with Roxio videowave 11. Hardware and software rendering.
Try swapping in a known good PSU capable of supplying the whole system (400W or above with your present GFX card) run memtest as described below, make sure the inside of the case including all fans and Ram + GFX card slots are free of heat trapping dust, if you have recently installed new video card drivers try rolling back to the previous drivers, if not check for updated drivers.
If you are using 32 bit XP it will only show 3.3GB (sometimes less) check in the BIOS does it show 4GB there, for conclusive test results you need to run at least 5-6 passes of each Ram stick, this can take overnight.
Ran memtest86+ on my memory(kingston 2Gb x 2) and it only shows 3.3Gb total. When each slot in run by itself the test pass. I ran the test for about an hour.
What is the brand and model of the present PSU and have you checked that all fans are working correctly?
Download and run Speedfan http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php post screenshots both before and after you have used the computer under load, this will enable your temps and voltages to be checked, you may find reading this http://forum-en.msi....?topic=109858.0 helpful for using Speedfan.
